GERMAN AND ENGLISH LEXICON.
I. THE GERMAN GRAMMARS of Worman are widely preferred on account of their clear, explicit method (on the conversation plan), introducing a system of analogy and comparison with tbe learners' own language and others commonly studied.
The arts of speaking, of understanding the spoken language, and of correct pronunciation, are treated with great success. The new classifications of nouns and of irregular verbs are of great value to the
Supil. The use of heavy type to indicate etymological changes, is new. The Vocabuj*y is synonymical—also a new feature.
II. WORM AIT'S GERMAN READER contains progressive selections from a wide range of the very best German authors, including three complete plays, which are usually purchased in separate form for advanced students, who have completed the ordinary Header.
It has Biographies of eminent authors. Notes after the text, References to all German Qramraars in common use, and an adequate Vocabulary; also, Exercises for translation into the German.
III. WORMAN'S GERMAN T.CTIO (Deutsches Echo) is entirely a new thing in this country. It presents familiar colloquial exercises without translation, and will teach fluent conversation in a few months of diligent study.
No other method will ever make the student at home in a foreign language. By this he thinks in, as well as speaks it. For the time being he is a German through and through. The laborious process of translating his thoughts no longer impedes free unembarrassed utterance.
