Secondary School Curriculum. Part I. Langauge, History, and Mathematics: The French Course


by Frank Elbert Brooks 1906

The more important considerations which have determined the position that French occupies in the Horace Mann School are: the needs of different groups of pupils; the correlation of this subject with other studies; its practical culture and disciplinary value; and the crowded curriculum of a high school course. French pronunciation offers peculiar difficulties to English-speaking pupils, and for this reason the study of French is begun as early as practicable, at a time when the organs of speech are still in a plastic condition, the pupil's imitative faculties are still keen, and the forms of expression are more readily mastered. Because French is an uninflected language, because of its close relation with English and Latin, and the ease with which substantial progress can be made at the beginning, it is considered the most suitable of the modern languages to pave the way to the study of Latin.
