Apprentissage de la Lecture a Haute voix d'un Texte en Prose Francaise (Learning to Read French Out Loud).
A method for teaching French oral reading is presented. Prior to the actual oral reading, the student should: (1) read the text attentively for meaning and in order to decide on the appropriate tone; (2) determine the rhythm appropriate to the text; (3) indicate, by means of arrows, the general intonational curve; (4) indicate the "liaisons" to be made or to be avoided; (5) study the silent "e's"; (6) indicate syllabic divisions; (7) indicate assimilations created by the dropping of final "e"; and (8) identify syllabic semi-vowels. Following individual or group reading, a tape recording could serve as means of checking the performance. (AM)
