College Will Start Grammar Review

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Having trouble with your French? Or is it your English? In either case the Bureau of Study Counsel offers a cure. Beginning December 3rd, it will introduce a ten-day experimental course in English formal grammar for students in elementary foreign language courses.

"We are offering the course for these students," William G. Perry, Director of the Bureau said, "because many were never taught the fundamentals of formal grammar at school. This makes it very difficult for them in language courses. For instance, they may not even know the difference between a noun and an adjective."

Edward H. Addelson '39, 10G, supervisor for the Study Counsel Bureau, will give the course. He has written a special 60-page text-book for the course called "A Short Review of English Grammar."

Class sessions will be held evenings at 7 p.m. at Sever 29. Cost of the course will be $10, and students may register for it at the Bureau's office at 42 Holyoke House, before Friday, November 30th.
