THE WOMAN SERIES IN MODERN LANGUAGE.

A Complete Course In German.

By JAMES H. WORMAN, AM.

Elementary German Grammak,

Complete German Grammar,

Collegiate Germ An Reader, Elementary German Reader, German Copy-books, German Echo,

History* Oe German Literature,

German And English Lexicon.

I. THE GERMAN GRAMMARS of Wonnan are widely preferred on account of their clear, explicit method (on the conversation plan), introducing a system of analogy and comparison with the 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

Eupil. The use of heavy type to indicate etymological changes, is new. The Vocabuxy is synmi/mical—also a new feature.

IX. WORMAN'S GERMAN REAVER contains progressive selections from a wide range of the very beet German authors, including three complete plays, which are usually pnrehased In separate form fur advanced students who have completed the ordinary Reader.

It has Biographies of eminent authors. Notes after the text. References to all German Grammars in common use, and an adequate Vocabulary; also, Exercises for translation Into the Gorman.

MX WORMAN'S GERMAN ECHO (Deutsche* 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 Oerman through and through. The laborious process of translating his thoughts no longer impedes free unembarrassed utterance.
