Peace Corps/Zambia PST 1995 Special Lessons: Bemba.
Peace Corps (Zambia).
This manual is designed for the Bemba language training of Peace Corps volunteers and focuses on daily communication needs in that context. They consist of: a list of useful "survival" phrases and vocabulary; a noun and affix chart; the national anthem; a section on verb tenses and negation, with extensive grammar and usage notes; notes on interrogatives; and a series of nine lessons (trainer and trainee versions) at beginner and intermediate levels, on water, sanitation, and related health issues. The lessons aim at developing volunteer competencies in: conducting a meeting; examining processes; obtaining technical expertise; and discussing water-borne diseases. Trainer materials include a suggested scenario, cultural notes, suggested classroom techniques, vocabulary list, grammar notes, classroom exercises, and out-of-class tasks. Trainee materials include a text, cultural notes, objectives, vocabulary list, grammar notes, the same exercises and tasks, and in some cases, a self-evaluation question. (MSE)
