5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Recommended 1 Oct 2013
By Rob S TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My little boy of 9 is home taught with his cousin, so we are always on the look out for new work books and related things that will help him with his school work.

French is a subject that we have struggled with, my wife speaks a little french she learnt at school, i'm rubbish at it and we didn't want to pay for another tutor.

Practice and learn French seemed like a good option.

We loaded the disc in to one of our laptops which runs windows vista, took only a couple of minutes and it was up and running.

The software and book are brilliant, you click on a word and you hear the correct way to say the words, its amazing how wrong we have been saying some words, even the basic words, the vocal is as clear as having someone in the room.

The book is packed with things to do, we are really pleased with the package and am sure it will give him a good start to his French.

By K. Z. Sobol TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is rather good 20 Oct 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A good way to supplement what child learns at school. The book has a nice layout with simple explanations and focused questions. The added CD-ROM is helpful so you can hear the way the words are meant to be pronounced, this then should help reinforce a child's ability to practice their vocab. There are well-done colour coded pictorials that should make learning more fun and enjoyable for the student.

5.0 out of 5 stars C'est Magnifique ! 15 Sep 2014
By Duncurin VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
CGP books, need no introduction in our household. Having two girls who went through GCSE and A-levels I think we must have been through every book that they publish – but not this one.
I have to say that for the indicated age range, then it’s amazing. It is easy to use, has lovely little puzzles and word searches and attains the holy grail of learning – it’s fun.
I can only remember back to the time I started French lessons at my Grammar school at the age of 11 but this wonderful book, I am sure would have got me started even at that age much more quickly.
I loaded the CD up on my Mac and it installed within minutes and what’s more it seemed to put itself in the right place (unusual with the Mac where you have to drag things in to the Apps folder ) and just needed a little click to launch it. The contents of the book are nicely covered in the CD and as one would expect it also teaches one the correct enunciation.
The other point of note is it’s brilliant value for money.
Overall, highly recommended and certainly worth buying for any child, and for a good many adults who are starting out in French. Many thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic fun and value. Buy it! 16 Sep 2014
By Film Buff VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I think this Practice And Learn book is well worth the money. It's really colorful with quizzes throughout of basic French. So for example: numbers, colours, the months and days, fruits and your family. There are spaces for you to fill in your answers, although I would be inclined to do this on a separate piece of paper. The book has lots of nice illustrations of whatever you're trying to learn. For example: a cat, a dog, a fish etc... There are word searches, questions and words for you to unscramble. Although I am much older than the target age range I found this book very helpful. It is great for learning and then revision. Maybe I quickly want to check on the weather (rain, snow, sun etc...), what these words are. The book is quite thin (33 pages) but then it isn't that expensive and it comes with a Listen And Learn CD! Which covers everything in the book. You'll be surprised by how much information they manage to cram into these 33 pages. You really do get the basics of French here. Fantastic fun and value. Buy it! [I liked it so much I bought the earlier book, for ages 7-9.]

This is a really useful book.

The cd that comes with the book is really good. The pronunciation of the words that you are seeing in the book is very clear and using this resource, children will learn the correct way of saying words in French.

Overall, it is a really good package and an excellent resource for complimenting / supplementing what the children may be learning at school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to learn from 12 April 2014
By shaz17 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Easy to load on the computer and easy to follow the words from the book and listen to it on the computer so you say it correctly. Even my 7 year old grandson began joining in while I was trying to teach his sister, so ended up both of them learning at the same time.

They both found it fun to learn from both the book and the cd that you get with this CGP set. The pages are bright & colourful and the print is nice on the eyes.

Little games keep the learning fun and easy to learn.

Good price and good fun.
