Item Code : UHAW3677University of Hawaii Press. Textbook. 296 pages. "Let's Speak Ilokano" takes a new and lively approach to langue learning. The language is learned in the context of simulated real-world experiences that are acted out___running the gamut from "Getting to Know You" in lesson one, to "Borrowing Money" in lesson fifteen. Tested with beginning Ilokano students at the University of Hawaii, this approach has been shown to enable students to overcome the psychological barriers of using a foreign language. This approach reinforces language use by providing a variety of non-threatening listening and writing exercises as integral parts of each lesson. A variety of memorization techniques help travellers to acquire both vocabulary and structures painlessly. Oral exercises are provided through communication activities and language games.

Customer Comment: "There aren't too many Tagalog books out there, and Ilocano ones are so rare I didn't think they existed until I spotted this on your site. This book really helped me out when I visited the province of Pangasinan. Sure, I am not fluent but I was able to make myself understood." April H.

Item Code : UHAW3680University of Hawaii Press. 674 pages. Size 6"x9". Ilocano-English, English-Ilocano text. This root-based dictionary of the Ilocano language is the most comprehensive dictionary of it's kind. The body of the dictionary includes entries for roots and affixes, with illustrative sentences idioms, common derivations, and scientific names (when applicable). Unlike most dictionaries of Philippine languages, it has an extensive English to Ilocano section. A terrific resource guide! "Among the Philippine languages, Ilokano is ranked third in terms of its number of mother-tongue speakers (probably over 8,000,000), yet there has never been a good, widely available dictionary of the language until now.... This dictionary deserves a place on the shelves of anyone interested in the Ilokano language." --Oceanic Linguistics, June 2002 This root-based dictionary of the Ilocano language is the most comprehensive dictionary produced of Ilocano (Iloko), the lingua franca of Northern Luzon, and historically the native language of the majority of Filipino immigrants to the United States.
