PÁGINAS SUDAMERICANAS

Instructor in Spanish in the University of Texas

New York, 1920

PREFACE

This book is largely adapted from bulletins and articles issued by the Pan American Union. Such informational matter, free from indirect constructions, lends itself admirably to the direct method, and it is hoped that the book may prove especially useful in classes where this method is used.

The author's intention, in the present work, is to supply conversation and composition material for classes taught by the direct method, or reading material for classes taught otherwise. The book might either follow such a textbook as Hall's All Spanish Method or be used in connection with it. The Spanish English vocabulary which has been provided for the book is included simply as a concession to the present transitional stage of modern language instruction.

The vocabulary does not claim to be complete; it does not include words of more or less identical spelling in Spanish and English, or derivatives where primitives are given, or the much used forms which are certain to be learned by any student who has advanced to the point of reading continuous discourse.

A word of explanation as to the spelling of Brazilian geographical names may not be out of place. It seemed preferable to give the exact Portuguese form rather than the Spanish form; hence such words as rio and bahia, which are accented in Spanish, are given without the accent in Brazilian place names.

For the most effective use of this book, pictures, maps, and objects, in addition to the illustrations of the book, will be found helpful. The Bulletin of the Pan American Union is invaluable as a means of securing interest in the Latin American countries. Particularly adapted to use by a class are the pamphlets descriptive of the various South and Central American countries, likewise published by the Pan American Union. A few South American pictures are to be obtained from the Perry Pictures Company, Malden, Massachusetts; post cards may be had from the Universal Post Card Company, 115 North Street, New York City; other sources, such as geographies, histories, books and magazines of travel, and advertisements, will readily suggest themselves.

This opportunity is taken of thanking Mr. John Barrett and Mr. Francisco J. Yanes, Director and Assistant Director, respectively, of the Pan American Union, for permission to use the material of the Union. For the use of many photographs, also, thanks are due to the Pan American Union.
