Ingls I Introduccin
La siguiente descripcin de lo que podra llamarse Lectura en conjunto sugiere algunos elementos muy importantes de lo que implica el proceso de lectura de un idioma escrito. El seor Smirnoff se cri en el seno familiar hablando ruso, pero l nunca aprendi a leer su lengua materna. Por su parte, el seor Gmez se autoense a leer las letras del alfabeto ruso, pero nunca ha tenido tiempo para aprender a hablar ruso. Un da, el seor Smirnoff recibe una carta, escrita en cirlico por un pariente en Rusia. Se la muestra al seor Gmez, comentndole que no la puede leer. El seor Gmez la puede leer pero no la entiende. No hay problema: el seor Gmez lee las palabras en voz alta, el seor Smirnoff las reconoce y las interpreta, y ambos terminan contentos! El interrogante que hay que hacerse es ste: Quin est leyendo, el seor Gmez o el seor Smirnoff? Es evidente que para contar con habilidad en un idioma, el alumno tiene que dominar ambas destrezas que adquirieron los seores Gmez y Smirnoff separadamente. Es precisamente por este motivo que el Mtodo Pimsleur usa su propia metodologa para ensear a leer.

Ingls I Introduccin (sigue)


La lectura se puede definir como la accin de descodificar materiales grficos con el fin de determinar su mensaje. En otras palabras, la lectura consiste en regresar al idioma hablado por intermedio de los smbolos grficos que lo representan. Cada texto escrito representa una posible expresin hablada, pero slo las personas que tienen algn dominio del idioma hablado pueden inferir de forma razonable cmo el texto escrito se podra expresar en voz alta. Por lo tanto, el hablar el idioma es un primer paso indispensable para adquirir la capacidad de leer el idioma y entenderlo. Las lecciones de lectura en este folleto ofrecen un segundo paso: se disearon para ayudarle a asociar los sonidos y los cambios de sonido con las letras del alfabeto ingls. La grabacin de los materiales de lectura de Ingls I se encuentra al final de cada una de las unidades, comenzando con la Unidad Nueve. Las lecturas tambin se hallan, todas juntas, al final del curso. stas se pueden realizar segn ms le convenga a cada alumno. Se pueden completar individualmente con cada unidad, en el momento ms propicio una vez terminada la unidad, o se pueden completar todas juntas una vez que se terminen las treinta unidades. Las instrucciones sobre cmo proseguir con las lecturas se encuentran en la porcin de audio del curso.

Al efectuar las lecciones, tenga en cuenta que el ingls es un idioma repleto de irregularidades, en el que abundan las excepciones. Las orientaciones que se dan en estas lecciones reflejan patrones generales, mas no reglas fijas. No obstante, en la medida en que vaya aumentando su vocabulario, descubrir que estas excepciones representan menos y menos dificultades. Usted comenzar a reconocer vocablos y los percibir como entes completos, eliminando as la necesidad de vocalizarlos slaba por slaba, o de descodificarlos, letra por letra. Prosiga leccin tras leccin con las lecturas, al paso que ms le convenga, repitiendo cada lectura cuantas veces quiera hasta que usted se sienta preparado para pasar a la siguiente unidad.
