We analyze the three volumes of Romeo Lovera’s manual, Corso di Lingua francese a base intuitiva, which were intended for teaching French in secondary schools. The manual was first published in 1902 in Venice by Libreria editrice del Bollettino di Filologia Moderna, and there will be many reissues. Romeo Lovera is Italy's biggest supporter of methodological reform in the teaching of foreign languages ; it discloses, through the Bollettino di Filologia Moderna, new theories, scientific methods and their didactic applications. In their manuals, from the first lesson, through the direct and indirect intuition of the foreign language, the student learns to speak the French language by studying the most usual expressions and sentences and by learning grammar inductively.
