Approximately fifty pages will introduce the student to the sound values of each letter or group of letters in a Key to Pronunciation and to basic approach to the practical use of this one volume self-teacher. The system was used in the armed services during the war, and while the basic instructional method is followed, suggestions for alternate plans of study are made. The system provides for three parts to each lesson: (1) a vocabulary and exercise in its use; (2) an exercise introducing conversation; (3) an exercise in translation from English into French. Step by step, anyone with a slight grounding in French will find it all comes back, and facility grows. To those approaching the subject with no background, the success of the system depends largely on the mastery of the introductory lessons on pronunciation and sound values, so don't bypass them.
