The new methods aim to train the ear, the tongue and the eye. The author has tried to bring together a set of exercises giving to each of these organs a fair field of activity. He uses the conversational method from the very start.
The book will teach you pronunciation and phrases, pronouns, the present indicative, irregularly-conjugated verbs, the passe compose, and several more tenses and complex grammar rules. The fourth level focuses on French literature and prose writing.

In this edition I have endeavoured to keep down additions as much as possible, so as not to overload the book; but I have not been sparing in adding cross-references (especially in the Index) and quotations from standard authors.
