The aid of a reliable book of dialogues in the study of a language cannot be
overestimated, and it is with a view to further increasing the usefulness in
this respect of the present work that it has been thoroughly revised, and a
number of important changes made in it. The pages on Spanish
pronunciation have been re-written and augmented, as have also those on the
verbs, and numerous additions have been made to the vocabularies, several
of which have also been rearranged. As in the new editions of the French
and other dialogues of the series, idioms and proverbs, alphabetically
arranged, have been substituted for less useful matter, and some aid s are
given to letter-writing, but for a full treatment of this latter subject those
interested are referred to special works dealing with it issued by the same
The above changes, together with others of a minor character, but which
bring the work right up to date, will, it is felt, be appreciated by all desirous
of acquiring a good conversational knowledge of the Spanish language.
