quickest and the only thorough method of reforming an
incorrect pronunciation is to teach the sounds and to have
constant reading from phonetic transcription. If stories
in phonetic transcription are used for oral work, and if
the pupils are trained to read them comprehendingly, the
wrong sounds soon give place to more correct ones. The
large majority of pupils are very anxious to pronounce

ntique internationale, Assistant Professor of French in Columbia


University, in charge of French in the School of Practical Arts,
Teachers College, Columbia University.
Price $i.oo

This is the basic book of the Walter-Ballard French Series.


presents the essentials of French grammar and a systematic
study of the French verb in a carefully developed series of
sixty-three lessons.
These are followed by selections for reading, an outline of French grammar in French, a group of the
best-known French songs with music, and a vocabulary.
The usefulness and attractiveness of the book are greatly
increased by a map of France, a phonetic chart in colors, eight
full-page half-tone illustrations, and five large line-drawings
representing a kitchen, a dining-room, a bedroom, a drawingroom, and the interior of a railroad station, designed to supplement by the direct appeal to the eye the lessons in the text.
The book embodies the best features of the Direct Method
and has been carefully planned to meet conditions in our American schools. The following features are noteworthy:
1. Pronunciation is explained by the use of phonetics.
2. Oral work is insisted on from the outset.
3. Grammar is taught inductively.
4. Ample provision is made for home work.
5. The building up of a working vocabulary is systematicIt

ally emphasized.
6. A French atmosphere

While every opportunity

needs of different kinds of classes, the complete materials are

furnished and all the necessary directions are given for the
