Tashelheet: A Competency-Based Curriculum, Beginning & Intermediate Students.
The Peace Corps volunteer language training materials for the Moroccan language Tashelheet are designed for group, individual, or self-instruction. An introductory section gives the learner an overview of language characteristics, the materials, and their design. The main section of the materials is divided into two parts. The first contains 16 lessons, each containing a topic description and unit objective, lists of structures, and grammar notes. Lesson topics include greetings, giving and getting personal information, numerals, personal activities, family, making plans, giving and getting directions, shopping, food and drink, renting a house, describing a job, invitations, social norms, and weather and farming. This section ends with a list of useful expressions for expressing confusion and gaining clarification, and lists of verbs and nouns, with pronunciation notes. The second part contains 14 texts, each followed by questions testing the learner's comprehension of the passage and providing oral and written practice. The content of the texts provides vocabulary and familiarity with Moroccan/Berber culture. (MSE)
