Beginning Tagalog J. Bowen
A comprehensive, one-year introductory textbook, Beginning Tagalog has been designed to meet the specific needs of adult native speakers of English who wish to learn spoken Tagalog (though students with other language backgrounds may be able to follow the course with profit). With fairly intensive class scheduling, and assuming laboratory assignments and home study, the text can be covered in one academic year. The text is designed to accomplish two aims. The first is to impart oral control of Tagalog and, by means of an acquaintance with the major patterns of the language, to provide the means for additional independent study that will lead to a full mastery of the structures and a vocabulary that is sufficiently broad to meet the needs of most students. The second aim is to provide accurate, up-to-date information about the patterns of Filipino culture that will enable a student to understand the social customs, standards, values, and aspirations of the Filipino people, in order to prepare him for sympathetic, enlightened, and useful participation in the context of Filipino society. The text consists of 25 units and appendices. In the first half of the text, the student plays the part of hearer and speaker, with only incidental reading of oral dialogs and drills. From Unit XIII on there is a reading section designated for each unit, correlated with the primarily spoken materials, but designed to promote facility in the orthography and distinctive patterns of the written language. 1965, paperback, 526pp.
Intensive Tausug Carl R. Galvez Rubino
Intensive Tausug was written to serve as either a self-study pedagogical grammar or an interactive classroom textbook aimed at introducing the student to the fundamental skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the language of Jolo Island and vicinity (Pata, Marunggas, Tapul and Lugus), and the lingua franca of the Sulu Archipelago, Philippines. This book is divided into twenty lessons, each one centered around a number of grammatically, thematically or culturally relevant dialogues. New vocabulary that occurs in the dialogues immediately follows each dialogue. Intensive Tausug was designed with an aggressive curricular agenda under the assumption that most users of the book will have already proficiency in Tagalog or another Philippine languages, so much of the description focuses on phenomena in Tausug that are divergent from Tagalog, rather than Austronesian features that would seem exotic to an English speaker. Comes with 2 audio CDs. 2006, 442 pages, hardbound.
