Defense Language Institute Albanian  - Image This is Volume 8 of the 11-volume Albanian Basic Course. It is the largest volume, containing 18 lessons. The subjects range from the seasons in Albania to the Korean war.

The format is a little different from previous volumes. Each lesson begins with a longer Dialogue than usual. This is because the Dialogue tells a story that would be incorrect if shortened. After reading the entire dialogue, the student will be given approximately half of it to memorize. The Dialogue is followed by a Grammar Review which has been added to refresh the student's memory. Next is the Reading Text, the basis for the Dialogue. The student is expected to read this Text at home and come to class prepared to answer questions about it.
Each lesson concludes with two familiar parts: Homework and Vocabulary.
