Part I., Analysis of Words and Pronunciation, just published, 1s. cloth. THE COMMON-SENSE METHOD OF TEACHING FRENCH,

By H. POOLEY and K. CARNIE.

This method is the outcome of many years' experience, aided by the careful practical study of the Systems in use in the elementary Schools of Paris.

French is a living language, and to be of practical use, must be taught conversationally from the outset.

The C. S. METHOD exercises the pupil in articulation and pronunciation, whilst at the same time he is acquiring, without conscious effort, a large vocabulary of French words, which are brought into daily use. The study of French Grammar is postponed until the pupil can read and understand fluently and intelligently.

We quite admit that to begin to teach a language by its grammar is a blunder."The Times on SIR J. LUBBOCK's Speech at University College, Bristol, Nov. 5th, 1883.

“The teaching of a foreign language so constantly fails, because the science which treats of the facts of the language is attempted before the learner is in any way made familiar with the facts themselves. The cart is put before the horse."--RICHARD MORRIS, M.A., LL.D., President of the Philological Society.

THE MUSICIAN. A Guide for Pianoforte Students. Helps towards the better Understanding and

Enjoyment of Beautiful Music. By RIDLEY PRENTICE. “We are far from suggesting that there is any royal road for acquiring technical knowledge, but we are quite certain Mr. Ridley Prentice's road is in every way the pleasantest that has yet been laid before any pianoforte student. If any one will work through this first grade conscientiously, by the time he has reached the end of it, he will have mastered many difficulties in harmony and musical form which he might have hitherto thought were almost insurmountable. The work supplies a deficiency in musical literature which has long been felt, and we earnestly recommend the study of it to all those who wish to become intelligent pianoforte players."-Saturday Review.

A knowledge of form is imparted in simple and pleasant language. This is the right sort of instruction-book, for it teaches people to think and study for themselves. We heartily commend it to all who desire to understand, satisfactorily interpret, and enjoy beautiful music.”- Academy.

(In use at Eton, Harrow, Merchant Taylors', etc.) “Few living classical scholars have done so much, or nearly so much, as Mr. Fowle to smooth the way of the classical scholar by a series of elementary works which for accuracy in detail and perfection of method, as well as practical utility, are, as a whole, unsurpassed by any similar works in this country. Their tone is scholarly and thorough, and no real difficulty ... is shirked."-School Board Chronicle.

“It has seldom been our fortune to light upon a Greek grammar in which economy and retrenchment of space went so thoroughly along with lucidity and solidity of information. A vast amount of thought and pains has been bestowed upon such arrangements of declensions, divisions of a declension, tenses, and tables of verbs, as obviate wearisome repetition and establish a sequence appreciable by the learner."Saturday Review,
