PREFACE.

Learn a foreign language as you learned your motherlongue" this is in a few words the Method which Prof. Ahn has so successfully adopted in his continental Grammars.

It is the way that nature herself follows, it is the same which the mother points out in speaking to her child, repeating to it a hundred times the same words, combining them imperceptibly and succeeding in this way to make it speak the same language she speaks. To learn in this manner is no longer a study, it is an amusement.

The Editor of this Grammar has followed the rational System, wbich has already procured for Prof. Ahn a European reputation, and he has adopted it for the Study of the Spanish Language. He is greatly indebled to the excellent Grammars of Lespada and Martinez, which he has used for the ground work of this Grammar and it is hoped that its simplicity and utility will procure for it that favour, which the German, French and Italian Grammars of Prof. Ahn have already found in the Colleges and Schools of England.
