Seeking an English teacher: Letter from the Collège royal de Rouen to the rector of the Academy

Shortly after the Royal Council for Public Education had given its approval to the teaching of English, the Collège royal de Rouen, the forerunner to the Lycée Corneille, wrote to the rector complaining of difficulty in finding a qualified teacher. As it was recommended that pupils start learning English around the age of thirteen or fourteen, the rector told the school to advertise the post in Rouen newspapers.   See also a text for an English exam.
