Nah, Baca! Authentic Indonesian readings (vol. 2, teacher's edition)
Print

Description

This is the Teacher's Edition for Nah, Baca! Volume Two Student Workbook offers thirty-two lessons, based on readings selected from the contemporary press, for the teaching of Indonesian as a second language. The accompanying graded set of readings in the Reading Packet begin at the intermediate-mid level and proceed to texts at the advanced level. The intermediate-mid texts are instructional, having a non-complex underlying structure and support from pictures and formatting. These texts include announcements, articles from news and popular magazines, and government pamphlets. The advanced level texts include short stories and essays, offering longer stretches of discourse with description and narration where there is some assumed knowledge of Indonesian culture and history. Volume Two, which is designed for a second year language course at the university level, is intended as a supplement to a basic Indonesian language text. Nah, Baca! teaches only the reading skill, while other skills (i.e., speaking, listening, and writing) are integrated into the post-reading exercises but not directly taught.

Intermediate reader in technical and scientific Japanese
Print

Description

This textbook is designed so that intermediate Japanese students may learn complex grammatical structures and reading strategies at the same time that they acquire scientific and technical knowledge. The reading passages gradually increase in grammatical and structural complexity while becoming conceptually more sophisticated. Thus students with little scientific or technical background can 'read to learn' new knowledge. The topics include batteries, semiconductors, computers, biochips, biotechnology, and AIDS. This user-friendly textbook also keeps the interest of readers with its ample illustrations, intriguing trivia facts, and up-to-date discussion topics such as environmental issues, trade friction, intellectual property rights, and cloning.

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination
