I imagine this is (was?) a text used at what's now called the Missionary Training Center (then the LTM) - though it may have been developed at BYU rather than, say, at the MTC by returned missionaries to give the next "generation" an easier time of learning the language. (I know that when I was on my mission, part of the materials I received were handwritten notes from previous generations of missionaries, though we also had a "proper" textbook - which I didn't like much and largely ignored, preferring instead one in German I had brought with me - but that's another story.)
