This is one of a series of self-teaching textbooks in more than 30 languages initially prepared and published for the armed forces and later offered to the general public. The method used in this manual requires either that a native speaker of German be on hand during the course or that the recorded voice of a native speaker be used. Records and cassettes to accompany the course can be purchased. The book is divided into five major parts, each containing five learning units and one unit devoted to review. Each unit contains several sections, usually the following: (1) basic sentences (with hints on pronunciation and spelling), (2) word study and review of basic sentences, (3) listening practice, and (4) conversation practice. Each learning unit is followed by a "Finder List" containing all the new words in the particular unit. A summary of all word-study material, supplementary word lists, and two vocabularies, German-English and English-German, are included at the end of the manual. (Author/PMP)
