Defense Language Institute Albanian  - Image This is the ninth volume--the very first written in Toske dialect--of the DLI Basic Course in Albanian. It contains 20 lessons, one for each day beginning with the 26th'smek of the intermediate phase, right after rules governing the Toske dialogue have been introduced.

The purpose of each lesson is two fold: 1. Drill in Toske the already known structural features of the Gege dialect. 2. Teach military terminology; as a matter of fact, the contents of the whole volume are nothing but military subjects. As before, the daily lesson unit will continue to be centered around the basic dialogue, which has to be memorized. A prose narrative and questions provide for recombination of the material presented in the basic dialogue. You are expected to study the narrative of the current daily lesson unit at home. You should be ready to answer questions in class the following day and give an oral resume of the whole prose narrative. The situational topic of each lesson will be used also for free conversation.

Each day you will also have a mall amount of written homework consisting of sentences to be translated into Albanian and into English. These sentences incorporate structural elements and military terminology of the lesson just learned.

A glossary of all new vocabulary and idioms rounds out the printed materials of each lesson. The individual lessons are net as to a prescribed plan: presentation of the new material (dialogue presentation, prose narrative and military terminology) is given during the last two hours of the afternoon; the lesson cycle will continue the following morning with dialogue recitation, structural drill, questions and answers, which lead gradually to free conversation (the third hour of the morning). The first hour of the afternoon will be spent for reading and translation (Supplementary Reader, Vol. II).
