If you would like to add a modern language to your Latin studies, hereâ€™s the program for you. Modeled after the approachable Latina Christiana format, you will be able to teach your students the basics of grammar, help them develop a large vocabulary, and assist them in beginning to speak French. You will enjoy learning along with them as they practice conversation, reading and translation, and are introduced to French culture.
First Start French is an introduction to French for those with no previous background. It is designed to be used by students in grades 6 through 8, or as a gentle introduction to the basics for older students. The program is geared especially toward parents who would like to give their children early exposure to a foreign language, homeschoolers, or teachers who want to teach the language without knowing it well themselves. Even parents or teachers who do not know Latin are often willing to tackle it because speaking Latin is not so critical. This book attempts to do the sameâ€”to provide the means for a non-French speaking parent or teacher to begin learning and teaching French.
First Start French: Book One is designed to be used over one year. It includes 36 weekly lessons and review lessons.
This set consists of one copy of each of the following:
The student manual introduces vocabulary, grammar, and translation, with practice exercises for every lesson. The teacher manual includes hints and guidelines to keep you ahead of your student. Quizzes and answer keys make it easy to check progress. A pronunciation guide and CD will give your student the guidance needed to develop a good accent. Six fun, traditional French songs help with grammar and vocabulary. Start them off right with First Start French!
