Collins Easy Learning French stage 2 (booklet & cd's)
on 27 August 2011
This is a good follow-on from stage 1 and covers such things as telephone calls, renting accommodation, where are you from, hiring a car etc. The booklet contains lots of tips & extra information such as idiomatic expressions, shortened phrases eg. sympa short for sympathique, la clim short for la climatisation etc. There are parts to read, parts to repeat, parts to test yourself. There is a little use of the future tense, present tense & past tenses having been used mainly in both stage 1 & stage 2. Altogether a very useful package to further develop ones French speaking & understanding skills and the price is excellent value.
Some people might feel that there are overlaps with information they already know eg. days of the week, numbers, but this will always happen whichever course one chooses..... my feeling is that anything that develops ones familiarity with the language & adds to ones vocabulary is valuable. (Contains 1 booklet & 3 cd's).
