FRENCH, GERMAN, SPANISH, ITALIAN "I am learning to speak a foreign language like a native, because I am learningfrom the living voice of a na. tive foreign professor, who talks to me through the Language-Phone. My teacher speaks the Pure language, and ungrudgingly repeats it again and again-until I also can speak it fluently, and under converse in my newly acquired lan guage surprises both myself and my friends." So Say Thousands of Users of the LANGUAGE-PHONE METHOD Combined with ROSENTHAL'S PRACTICAL LINGUISTRY With this method you buy a native professor outright. You own him. You hear his living voice repeating each wordand phrase, correctly and distinctly. He speaks as you choose, slowly or quicky. When you choose, night or day. For a few minutes or for hours at a time. Any one can learn a foreign language who hears it spoken often enough. And by this method you can hear it as often as you like. You simply practice during spare moments or at convenient times, and in a surprisingly short time you speak, read and understand a new language.
