The Author has endeavoured to set forth as clearly and concisely as possible the means of acquiring a thorough commercial and grammatical knowledge of the Portuguese language, so as to enable the Student to speak, correspond and write correctly. He has been guided in his judgment by the knowledge derived from his father's experience of over thirtyfive years in teaching the language, as well as by his own extending over the last fifteen years, both in the capacity of Teacher as well as that of Examiner. For the sake of ready reference the work is divided into six parts, and the Grammatical portion is paragraphed. A fair number of Exercises have been included as being essential in the practice of the Parts of Speech, and a useful Dictionary of Commercial Terms and Abbreviations has been added.
