A Course in Conversational Malay

New or Used: $67.50
A Course in Conversational Malay is a comprehensive text suitable for language study in the classroom or for individual study at home. It is a beginner-level text and is recommended for learners with no background in Malay, as well as those who wish to revise their Malay in a structured and orderly way. When completed, the text will bring all students to quite a sophisticated level of conversational speech. The course is based on the conversational language of Malaysia and is useful for students and travellers interested in learning the everyday language of the country. Equivalent Indonesian vocabulary is given where this differs from the Malay. There are 25 lessons. Topics include greetings, making requests, identifying objects and colours, talking about the family, transportation, ordering food and drinks, looking for people and places, asking the time, requesting and giving directions, receiving and makinginvitations, discussing cultural differences, talking about sickness and health, driving, marketing and bargaining. Each lesson has a set of short presentation dialogues, a section on sentence structure, notes on language use and grammar, and detailed exercises. There are over 5,000 exercises. Each exercise is presented in a conversational context and drills the structures and vocabulary in the current dialogue, as well as reviews the structures and vocabulary in previous dialogues. Included in the text are 11 sets of review exercises of 40 utterances each accompanied by suggested answers, and an appendix of interactive exercises to further encourage communicative use of the language. New to this edition is a set of communicative exercises and word games for the thematic glossary. The text also has a detailed introduction describing the format and use of the lessons, a section describing the sound system of Malay, and three glossaries comprising various word lists from Malay to English, English to Malay, and a thematic glossary which groups words by situation. The presentation dialogues are recorded on separate tracks on one audio CD which accompanies the book.
