This Reader is the outgrowth of a desire for a textbook that combines
simplicity with variety. To make it available for use almost at the very
beginning of the Spanish course only the present tense has been employed
in the first twenty-three selections and difficult constructions have
been consistently avoided.
With one or two exceptions, many changes have been made in the
selections taken from Spanish authors in order to adapt them to the
needs of the beginner. The greater part of the reading material,
however, is either original or adapted from other languages. The
questions are intended to aid the pupil in the preparation of his
lessons. Teachers may alter or amplify these questions as they see fit.
Suggestions as to the method of treating the text may seem impertinent
to some. The authors however merely wish to suggest a method which they
have successfully employed:
I. Regular preparation of the advance lesson should be made as follows:
_a_. Reading of the text by the teacher, a sentence at a time. Each
sentence to be translated by a pupil after the new words have been
explained by the teacher, in Spanish if possible.
