Practical Aids for Teaching and Learning the French Language. WORKS BY F. JULIEN-

Oral and Conversational Method. Petites Legons_de_Conversation et de Grammaire. By F. Julien, Ancien Elève du Lycée de Tournon; French Master at the King Edward VI.'s Grammar School (Five Ways), Birmingham. Little Lessons on the most useful topics, &c., Verbs regular and irregular, Anecdotes, Correspondence, &c. Fifth enlarged Edition. Square crown 8vo, 250 pages, with the "Phrases," price 3s. 6d. Not a Grammar, but a method of Conversational French, introducing the material for every-day talk under a grammatical form and in the shape of exercises. The aim is to teach the spoken idiom, to exercise the ears and tongue, instead of exercising the eyes merely: not to treat a spoken language like a dead language, but to imitate the manner in which we learnt our mother tongue.

"The oral and conversational method advocated by M. Julien, and which is put forward in his 'Petites Leçons de Conversation et de Grammaire,' seems an admirable one, and we cannot but think that a teacher who would use this book in the manner M. Julien directs him to use it, would find a far more satisfactory result achieved in a far shorter time than by the use of an ordinary grammar, supplemented by a conversation book, or by one of the reading books in general use."-John Bull. Phrases of Daily Use and Practice. crown 8vo, limp cloth, 6d.
