My daughter has been learning French at school and this book has been a great resource for her to further her learning at home. The book is colourful and each double page covers a topic, eg specific themes like "Numbers", "Colours", "Months", "My Family", "Animals", "Clothes", "Food" and "The Weather" as well as double-page spreads on concepts like "Masculine and Feminine"and "Plurals". Other themes are more conversational like, "Hello", "What is your name?", "What do you like doing?" and "In my Town".
There are plenty of colourful games and tasks to complete and they go through each topic step by step, allowing for a good amount of repetition and practice without it getting boring.
The Vocab CD-Rom has saved my blushes with my attempts at a passable French accent and we have had a lot of fun together trying to copy the sounds of the words, thankfully with increasing success, all thanks to the clear diction of the narrator.
