Emma Serl enthusiasts will welcome this sequel to her beloved Primary Language Lessons and Intermediate Language Lessons. Chosen by the author of the PLL and ILL Teacher Guides (Mary Jane Newcomer) to approximate and complement the language learning experience of those texts, this reprint of the 1917 Aldine Third Language Book has been edited and updated only as necessary. Instructions in this book are written directly to the student but assume the presence of a teacher/parent. With an emphasis on effective written communication, grammar coverage is thorough and comprehensive although there are few practice exercises (by today's standards); there are only a few for each concept covered. There is no answer key or teacher guide (yet) for this book. Editing/updating is minimal but with an eye to conformance with the Chicago Manual of Style. There are a few references to religious content (i.e. Battle Hymn of the Republic or quotes). 5.5"x 8.5", 348 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
Recognizing the need to return to more traditional principles in education, Lost Classics Book Company is republishing forgotten late 19th and early 20th century literature and textbooks to aid parents in the education of their children.
This edition of Advanced Language Lessons is an edited republished edition of Aldine Third Language Book, which was originally published in 1917. Unfortunately, Emma Serl never wrote an advanced book to follow her Intermediate Language Lessons. Seeing a need for such a book, Lost Classics Book Company asked Mary Jane Newcomer, author of the Teacher's Guides for both Primary Language Lessons and Intermediate Language Lessons, for her recommendation for an advanced lesson book. Mary Jane is a qualified teacher with experience in homeschooling, and is thoroughly knowledgable of the content of Serl's books. She chose this book as an appropriate follow up for advanced students, being from about the same period and with content well-suited to advance the lessons in the previous Language Lessons books. The text has been updated and edited only where necessary. This book is intended for students aged 13 to 16 and will be especially helpful for those who have completed Emma Serl's Intermediate Language Lessons..
These materials offer complete coverage of both writing andgrammar.
