PREFACE.

L287

In preparing the present work it has been the aim of the authors, while excluding nothing of practical value which has already been placed before the public, to combine with the best features of the most approved methods the results of their own experience. While endeavoring to render this work a valuable assistant in the class-room, they have sought at the same time to adapt it to the purposes of private instruction, and in so doing have availed themselves to a great extent of the admirable plan presented in Woodbury's Practical Course with the German Language. Accordingly the lessons are arranged in the following order :

1. THE SUBJECT OF THE LESSON.

2. EXAMPLES, accompanied by their nearest English equivalents, and made to illustrate the grammatical and idiomatic principles which are involved in the Lessons.

3. VOCABULARIES, placed before the Exercises, the masculino and feminine nouns being grouped separately, and other parts of speech arranged alphabetically for convenience of reference.

4. FRENCH EXERCISES. The sentences in French require only the application of the instructions contained in the Lesson, or in the preceding ones, for their translation into English.

5. English EXERCISES. The analogous sentences in English are presented in immediate connection with the preceding ones
