KEY TO EXERCISES. Separate volume.

The Ollendorff System is founded in nature, and follows the same course that a child pursues in first acquiring his native tongue. It teaches inductively, understandingly, interestingly. It does not repel the student in the outset by obliging him to memorize dry abstract language which conveys little or no idea to his mind, but it imparts its lessons agreeably as well as efficiently by exercises which teach the principles successively involved more clearly than any abstract language can. VALUES and JEWETT's works are essentially the same, though differing somewhat in their arrangement and the additions that have been made to the original.

Prof. GREENE's Introduction will be found useful for young beginners. In it are presented the fundamental principles of the language, carefully culled out, and illustrated with easy exercises. It paves the way for the larger works, preparing the pupil's mind for their more comprehensive course, and awakening in it a desire for further knowledge.
