This book is intended to be used in a competency-based language training program. A competency-based approach to language training is one which focuses on the specific tasks that learners will need to accomplish through language. This approach focuses not only on language, but also on the cultural context and purpose of the communication. Some competencies are closely tied to work tasks, such as reporting an absence, explaining a procedure, or making an appointment with a supervisor. Others reflect basic survival needs like buying food, handling emergencies, and using local transportation. Still other competencies are part of ordinary social transactions, such as discussing home and family, requesting clarification, or expressing likes and dislikes. The competencies included in this book are those which we anticipate Peace Corps Volunteers will need most during their initial months in the country. Topics include the following:
Lesson 1: Personal Identification
Lesson 2: Classroom Orientation
Lesson 3: Conversations with Hosts
Lesson 4: Food
Lesson 5: Directions
Lesson 6: Transportation
Lesson 7: Social Situations
Lesson 8: Communications
Lesson 9: Medical
Lesson 10: Shopping
Lesson 11: Personal Identification II
