The Konkans by Tony D'Souza( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francisco D'Sai is a firstborn son of a firstborn son-all the way back to the beginning of a long line of proud Konkans, the "Jews of India," who abandoned their Hindu traditions, knelt before Vasco da Gama's sword and Saint Francis Xavier's cross, and became Catholics. In Chicago circa 1973, Francisco's Konkan father, Lawrence, does his best to assimilate into American culture, drinking a lot and speaking little. But Francisco's American, Peace Corps-veteran mother, Denise, and his uncle Sam (aka Samuel Erasmus D'Sai) are passionate raconteurs set on preserving the family's Konkan heritage. Friends, allies, and eventually lovers, Sam and Denise feed Francisco's imagination with proud visions of India and Konkan history. Like his acclaimed debutWhiteman and like the works of Monica Ali or Jhumpa Lahiri, Tony D'Souza's The Konkans is an absorbing portrait of assimilation filled with romance, comedy, masterly storytelling, and the truth of family life in any country

Developing and Validating an Intermediate English Reading Test for English-as-a-Second-Language Learners by Min Yao( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to more accurately place its intermediate English-as-a-Second-Language students in English courses, Vancouver Community College at King Edward Campus (KEC) developed the Intermediate English Reading Test (IERT). The goal was to create a test of minimum length that would yield scores with the necessary degree of reliability and validity for fine grading people whose English command is at the intermediate level. After consulting with reading instructors in the English Language Skills Department, a 20-minute test was devised consisting of a 1-page reading passage, an 8-question vocabulary section, and a 7-question comprehension section. Pilot testing was completed over 2 days with 344 intermediate level students at KEC speaking 56 different languages as their first language. The evaluation showed that the two sections were at the appropriate difficulty level for testees, but the comprehension section proved to be a slightly more reliable measure than the vocabulary section. The relatively moderate reliability of the test is viewed as acceptable because two questions in the vocabulary section artificially lowered the reliability rating of the whole test. In addition, the IERT is only one subtest of a battery of intermediate English tests used at KEC. Generally, the IERT may be regarded as a reliable reading test for people whose English is at the intermediate level. Tables of score distributions by test item and test section, a list of references, and the IERT are included. (MAB)
