Critical Languages Series CD-ROM for Kazakh
Despite the fact that they are spoken by millions of people, languages such as Korean or Turkish are not usually offered in schools or colleges. The Critical Languages Program (CLP) at the University of Arizona was created to meet the need for interactive instruction in these less commonly taught languages. In order to meet the needs of a wide variety of learners who wish to gain proficiency in these languages, CLP has developed a series of CD-ROM courseware beginning with Brazilian Portuguese, Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese, Kazakh, Kurmanji Kurdish, Korean, Ukrainian, and Turkish. Each multimedia double CD-ROM package is the equivalent of a full textbook and workbook and includes 20 lessons with up to 45 dialogs and readings, as many as 10,000 native speaker audio recordings, up to 45 native speaker video clips, and a variety of interactive exercises, audio phonetics training, graphics, and extensive grammatical and cultural notes. With the click of a button, learners can hear native speakers pronounce words or phrases, facilitating quick comprehension of these challenging languages. Each instructional package contains the equivalent of a textbook and workbook with audio and video components, making it practical for either self-instructional or directed educational, government, and business purposes.
