Languages, Writing, &C. John Crisp [electronic resource]: (Late Assistant at the Royal Academy, and at Two Eminent Grammar Schools, the One Kept by the Rev. Mr. Knox, Author of the Famous and Learned Essays on Education, at Tunbridge, in Kent; The Other by the Rev. Mr. Mant, at Southampton, in Hampshire, From Whence He Can Produce a Character That Will Bear Close Investigation With Respect to His Abilities and Moral Conduct,) Acquaints Young Gentlemen and Ladies, That He Has Opened a School for Their Reception, at No. 28, Long-Acre, Facing the King's Coach-Maker, Where They Will (But With a Small Number of Young Ladies in a Different Apartment) Be Taught by Mr. And Mrs. Crisp All the Various Accomplishments Suited to Their Sex, Birth, and Respective Rank in Life, That Can Be Expected From Any Institution of This Kind; Such as Writing, English in a Critical Manner, French, Latin, Greek, &C. Mr. C. Is a Londoner Educated at the University of Paris, and Flatters Himself of Being Able to Write or Speak French to Such a Degree of Perfection as to Pass for a Frenchman, Even Among French Critics. There Also Will Be Proper Persons to Instruct Them in the Other Arts and Sciences. Scholars May at This Seminary Learn English With Purity and Elegance; And French Is Taught Not (as Is Too Often the Case) in a Loose and Slovenly Manner, or as One Would Teach a Parrot, by Rote, But Grammatically by Him; Who, Having Made It His Study, Is Competent to Point Out With Accuracy, the Various Idioms of That Language, as Also the True Parisian Accent. - It Is Also Proper to Observe, That Mr. C. Means to Carry on, at the Same Time, a Small Bookseller and Stationer's Shop, Where Such of His Pupils, &C. May Buy, or Be Furnished, While at School, With the Newest and Best Publications in All Languages; A Matter Certainly Worthy of Attention, as the Greatest Care Will Be Taken in the Selection of Books Which May Compose Their Library. N. B. A Nobleman's Family, or School in or Very Near Town, May Be Attended. - Foreigners or English Gentlemen or Ladies May Be Instructed in the English, or Converse in French Two or Three Times a-Week in the Evenings, Either at the Academy, or at Their Houses, If More Agreeable. .
