First Lessons in French;
Or, Elementary French Grammar, Introductory to Ollendorff's Larger
This little volume is intended as an Introduction to "OLLENDORFF'S COMPLTEE FRENCH METHOD," and is published in accordance with a very general demand made for a more elementary work than the larger Grammar.
"It is believed that the student who shall take the pains to go carefully through this volume, in the manner suggested in the Directions for studying it, will come to the study of the Complete Method' with a degree of preparation which will render his subsequent progress easy and agreeable."
"It seems admirably suited in all its parts for its intended purpose. In a series of exercises, combining vocabularies and rules, it presents an elementary view of the whole subject of the French Grammar, teaching and at the same time illustrating every thing essential, both in the forms and in the syntax of the language. We have been particularly struck with the nice and exact manner in which the rules are stated, and the differences pointed out between the Englisn and the French Idiom. The book is particularly designed for younger scholars; but persons more advanced will do well to use it before coming to the study of the Complete Method' of Ollendorff. It is the best of the kind with which we are acquainted, and, we doubt not, will 300n win its way to general adoption."-Providence Journal.
PROF. GEORGE W. GREENE.
Companion to Ollendorff's New Method of
Learning to Read, Write, and Speak the French Language. 12mo. 75 cents.
"The present work, as its name imports, forms a very appropriate companion to the new edition of OLLENDORFF by M. VALUE. It comprises a series of ninety-two dialogues, carefully selected, so as to familiarize the student with an extensive range of subjects, and to enable him to converse upon them with ease and fluency.
"The dialogues are followed by a valuable chapter on differences of idioms, in which those peculiarities of the language which cannot be classified under general rules, are clearly exhibited, accompanied by grammatical hints and useful suggestions.
Nearly one half of the book is taken up with a vocabulary of words arranged ac cording to subjects, presenting at a single glance all the principal terms relating to any particular art, profession, or branch of science. Among other improvements, we notice the French names of all the principal countries, cities, towns, islands, seas, rivers, mountains, &c., in the world-names of the principal nations and races of men, and the proper names of men and women. These tables are indispensable to the French stu dent, and alone are worth the price of the book.
"In Mr. Green's reputation as Professor of Modern Languages in Brown University, we have a sufficient guaranty of the accuracy of the work."-Commercial Advertiser. "We commend this volume as a Vade-mecum to all students of the French tongue. The dialogues are simple in construction-yet they embrace a wide range of subjects. The idiomatic hints supply a desideratum that has been long needed by the student, as those who have atterapted to render French colloquy according to grammatical rules, know too well. The vocabulary preceding each conversation is a convenience, if not a novelty; it precludes the necessity of frequent reference to a more ponderous work."Literary Union.
