Nah, Baca!, Volume 1 is designed for a first year language course at the university level and is intended as a supplement to a basic Indonesian text. Volume 1 contains twenty-two lessons, based on readings selected from the contemporary Indonesian press. The accompanying graded set of readings in the Reading Packet begin with formulaic texts, such as tickets, receipts, and maps, and move to instructional texts such as invitations, advertisements, and memoranda. Each lesson in the Student Workbook consists of a set of reading activities that explore the significance of the reading, beginning with a global reading and proceeding through more detailed readings. A Teacher's Edition is also available.
