Excerpt from Ollendorff's New Method of Learning to Read, Write, and Speak the French Language: With an Appendix, Containing the Cardinal and Ordinal Numbers, and Full Paradigms of the Regular and Irregular, Auxiliary, Reflective and Impersonal Verbs

I have often been led to reflect upon the manner in which a language can be taught in the shortest time; and I have found it everywhere surrounded with difficulties. Meidin ger, who holds the first rank among those who have essentially contributed to improve the methods of teaching languages, is yet very far from leading the scholar to the object he wishes to attain; and although his Grammar has had an extraordinary sale, and imitators without number, It by no means contains the requisites of a good method. I have myself used it for a long time in teaching; later, however, I found that this grammar, besides its deficiency in gram matical accuracy, and precise and definite rules, accustoms the learner to recite lessons too rapidly, without affording him a previous opportunity of practically applying them. It has also the disadvantage of containing ready-made, and therefore comparatively useless, sentences the author mixes too much those rules of which the scholar is quite gnorant, with those which he already knows; and not till the l43d lesson, after he has explained the compound ten ses of the verbs, can the teacher form questions and an swers Of the sentences; and even then he is still obliged to adapt all such sentences to the very limited knowledge of his scholars.
