Self-Instructional Audio Course in Jicarilla Apache Now Available

AUDIO-FORUM, one of the largest publishers/distributors of self-instructional language audio materials in the world, has just published what we believe to be the first and only program to teach Jicarilla Apache. The program, authored by linguist Alan Wilson, with Rita V. Martine, a native speaker of Jicarilla Apache, consists of four audio cassettes and a 150-page text. This basic course in Jicarilla Apache provides the foundation for mastering the essential vocabulary and sentence structures used in everyday Apache conversation. Following a pronunciation section, lesson units include dialogs, textual and grammatical explanations, and exercises for review and practice. Cultural notes on Apache humor, taboos, and idiomatic usages are interspersed in the 21 lesson units. A special feature is the regular comparison throughout the text of Jicarilla Apache with western Apache and other Apachean languages. The program costs $65, plus $6 for shipping within the United States. All AUDIO-FORUM programs are covered by an unconditional three-week money-back guarantee: If the product is not satisfactory for any reason and is returned within three weeks of receipt, a refund will be issued.
