Product Description

Book Description

The content of the French for Starters Paperback is based on what a traveller would need to say when on holiday in France in predictable, and some amusingly unpredictable, situations. The first part deals with 'What you will need to say' and covers simple grammar points as they arise. The second part lets the learner loose on what he or she has learned in the first part, in a variety of practical situations. A particularly attractive feature of the book are the cartoons by Celia Weber.

Very well set out, grammar points explained clearly with appropriate examples of language use. Chapters devoted to topics one is likely to use on holiday. Cartoons and illustrations help to give memory aids and make the book quite fun to use. Interesting sections giving details of French attitudes and way of life.

I would recommand this book to anyone thinking of learning french for the first time or students trying to get back into the subject. I attend an evening class and this book was recommanded to purchase. There are 2 cassette tapes which you can purchase and they cover a number of the 'Checkpoint' exercises to help the student move along at a steady pace.

Very disappointed. I was under the impression that I was buying another French for Starters book as the cover was unlike any of the books I have, but when it arrived it was exactly the same as one I have and it was not this cover... Had it been portrayed in the cover of the book I received I would not have purchased it.
