The success of Ollendor?' is unquestionably due to his method, by which he has made the German, heretofore noto riously ditiicult to foreigners, accessible to the capacity of all, young or old, learned or unlearned. Instead of pre-supposing a iiuniliurity with English Grammar in the pupil, and then presenting a synthetic View of the principles of the hnguag as is commonly done, he begins apparently without any system, ith the simplest phrases, from which he deduces the rules, until gradually and almost imperceptibly he makes the pupil master of the etymolog' and syntax of every part of speech. The rules are. As it were, concealed amid the multitude of exercises which are added to each lesson, and which serve to tbrtil'y the learner in the principles he has already acquired. Another characteristic feature of the book, and one in which its practical merit chie?y consists is, that the examples on which the rules are based, and those which are intended to illustrate the rules, are not derived from the German Classics; they am neither the ideal language of Poetry, nor the rigorous language ot'science, but of life-short sentences, such as one would he most likely to use in conversing in a circle of friends, or in writing a letter.
