Part 1: 8 audiocassettes (11 hr.) and 409-p. text. Native speakers are your model. You learn by listening to a simple phrase, then repeating it in the pause on the tape, and then listening to the same phrase again to check your pronunciation. Phrases lead to simple dialogs that you master through skillfully constructed repetitions. Everything on the tape is in the target language, which helps you quickly get to the point of thinking in the foreign language. Linguists call this the "direct method," which is the most effective, for it avoids a learner's tendency to think of what to say in one's native language and then attempt to translate into the new language. With the audio method you can literally hear the progress you're making. Your accomplishment will come early, and it's tremendously satisfying.
