Hawaiian Historical Society hosts UHP author John R. K. Clark

JohnClark
Author John R. K. Clark turns to the Hawaiian newspaper archives to create rich reference guides filled with primary resource accounts of places in Hawai’i — his latest title, North Shore Place Names, comes from a lifelong passion for surfing and fascination with Hawai’i’s home of legendary winter swells. This title is an important example of one of many transitions in research style for scholars of Hawai’i — please take a look at his Hawaiian Historical Society lecture by clicking on the image to the left.

His latest title, North Shore Place Names, can be found on our web store.

The three volume text, Asyik Berbahasa Indonesia: A Grammar Practice Text, offers a communicative approach to the learning of the basic grammatical structures of Indonesian. Students become engaged in task-based activities set in life-like situations as they read, write and speak Indonesian. A set of online recordings of the opening segments reinforces the grammatical form as the student listens to the dialogue or text in a natural discourse setting. In addition, cultural notes at the end of the lessons allow the student to explore the relationship between language use and socio-cultural values and customs.

Audio files for this volume may be downloaded in MP3 format at http://www.indonesiantextbooks.wisc.edu
