Professor of German in Teachers College, Columbia University
Author of The Teaching of German in Secondary Schools

Cloth, 12mo, illustrated, 342 pages. List price, $1.10

Perhaps the most noteworthy feature of this book is its admirable adaptability for use in various types of schools. The author is a strong advocate of the direct method for teachers who are qualified to use it successfully, but he recognizes the unfortunate fact that many teachers are not so trained as to be able to use this method aione with success. He has, therefore, provided abundant material for use by the direct method and he has also provided sentences for translation. In other words, he has not blindly followed a theory but he has prepared a book for use in American schools as they are.

Other features that have attracted attention are

1. The careful introduction of one difficulty at a time.
2. The exceptionally systematic arrangement of each

lesson.

3. The use of connected reading matter through which

the student is introduced to German life and lit

erature.

4. The use of full-page half-tone illustrations.
5. An excellent type page.
