The exercises are so developed out of pictured objects and actions, and are so well graduated, that almost from the very outset they go alone. A beginner would have little use for a dictionary in reading. The words are so introduced, and so often used, that the meaning is kept constantly before the mind, without the intervention of a translation.

It presupposes an elementary knowledge of the language, and furnishes a running German text, allowing the learner to find the meaning of the words (in the appended Vocabulary), and forcing him, by the absence of English in the text, to think in German.
