Ideal for children or adults beginning to take an interest in French.
on 8 February 2017
These flashcards are ideal for children and adults who are beginning to take an interest in French. The cards have a phonetic pronunciation to help English speakers pronounce each French word. (Google-translate or Usborne Quick Links have helped for trickier words, where hearing the word spoken is helpful.) The quality is high, with a glossy finish and bold illustrated pictures. Each card is double-sided. The cards have easily withstood being repeatedly blu-tacked to a wall to be memorised. It's rewarding to move each learned card into your own drawer, tub or cupboard and take satisfaction in progressing through the pack, picking out new cards at random to replenish those on display that have been learned. The cards have basic, useful vocabulary including foods, clothes, animals, places (school, supermarket, hospital, street...), household objects (bed, table, lamp, sofa...), body parts, people (e.g. boy, girl, baby, doctor...) and things you use (cash machine, computer, camera...). There is plenty for a successful head start in French vocabulary and to kick start some motivation to learn.
