Reading Experience:

'Friday 17th December. French Class again tonight. I don?t know whether they liked me last time. Took Mother?s class. Only 3 present. Rather jolly. I think I could teach French if I did a little preliminary grinding at grammar. They are doing Themoin?s method and reading ?Le Voyage de M. P?rrichon?. I?d like to do this on the stage. I don?t know of anything quite so funny in English drama.'
