The workbook for Ilokano was designed for language training of Peace Corps volunteers in the Philippines. It consists of: a list of commonly-used phrases for greetings, leavetaking, shopping, asking for directions, managing a conversation, and introducing oneself; a more extensive vocabulary/phrase book of words and expressions used in everyday communication, organized by situation and accompanied by English translations; a list of core competencies at three skill levels (beginning, intermediate, advanced), expressed as performance objectives; an Ilokano-to-English glossary; a series of learning modules to help reinforce student learning in formal lessons; and extensive grammar notes. Topics of the learning modules include those needed for community entry, such as socializing, managing conversation, eating, shopping, travelling, and health. Each module includes a variety of exercises for vocabulary development, understanding of language appropriateness, and grammar. Supplementary worksheets on grammatical points and answers to most exercises are also provided. (MSE)
