This book covers the first two years of Junior Certificate French. Book 2, for third years, will focus clearly on Junior Certificate exam requirements. It adopts an integrated approach to all four languages skills and deals thoroughly with grammar, while keeping a communicative basis to language teaching. It reflects an awareness of French ways of life and culture; contains authentic listening and reading comprehensions; incorporates systematic, continuous revision; gives plenty of written assignments without the need for separate workbooks; provides opportunities to speak through 'Jeux de Role' and 'Le Francais en Classe' exercises; and, includes phonetics and dictation to develop a good French accent and to improve spelling. Teacher tapes and tapescript are available separately.
