What you will find in this book:

The art of using one’s native tongue correctly and forcibly is acquired through imitation and practice and is not so much a matter of knowledge as of habit.  As regards English, then, the first duty of our schools is to set before pupils’ excellent models, and, in all departments of school-work, to keep a watchful eye on the innumerable acts of expression, oral and written, which go to form a habit. 

Since, however, pupils come to school with many of their habits of expression already formed on bad models, our schools must give some attention to the special work of pointing out common errors of speech, and of leading pupils to convert knowledge of these errors into new and correct habits of expression. This is the branch of English teaching in which this little book hopes to be useful.

All the “Exercises in English” with which the author is acquainted consist chiefly of “sentences to be corrected.”  In such exercises, there are grave objections. If, on the one hand, the fault in the given sentence is not seen briefly, the pupil is likely, as experience has shown, to pass it by and to change something that is not wrong.
