Designed more like a storybook than a textbook, these language primers pair accessible and engaging texts with fun, contemporary characters and vibrant illustrations. Each book in the series includes an alphabet practice section, information on language structure, a word list, quizzes to check progress, and an audio CD so that children can listen to the spoken language and practice correct pronunciation. Many key topics that will appeal to young learners are covered, including family, friends, school, toys, games, numbers, and colors. These comprehensive introductory courses on learning a foreign or second language are appropriate for use in both the home and classroom.
