HENRI BUÉ, B.-és-L.,
FRENCH MASTER AT MERCHANT TAYLORS' SCHOOL, LONDON.
J. S. LEVIN, ENGLISH AND FOREIGN STEAM PRINTER, 2, MARK LANE SQUARE, GREAT TOWER STREET,
The compiler of this little book has had in view to teach the young beginner as many French words as possible in the least tedious
He has found by experience that what children dislike most to learn are lists of words, however useful and well chosen, and that they very soon get weary of disconnected sentences, but
commit to memory most readily a short nursery rhyme, anecdote, or fable. Hence the seiection he has made.
