Overview

Ideal for the adult learner considering a holiday in France, who has either learnt no French before or is conscious of having learnt 'the wrong kind'. 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. The accompanying cassettes provide lively examples and give short, memorable bursts of practice. A particularly attractive feature of the book are the cartoons by Celia Weber.
