Your first-class ticket to building key French language skills
From the bestselling Read & Think series, this fully-illustrated guide brings the French language to life! In addition to introducing, developing, and growing key vocabulary, this book gives you an insider's look at Francophone life and culturefrom a trip around Marseilles to a walk through Senegal's bustling markets, and from biographies of famous French personalities to articles on the customs and gastronomy of French-speaking countries.
Including more than 100 engaging articles written by native French-speakers, each one provides a bilingual glossary on the same page, allowing you to learn without stopping to look up new or unfamiliar words. Each chapter contains several exercises to reinforce comprehension and the new premium edition features streaming audio recordings of more than 40 readings (70 minutes) and over 7,000 vocabulary items by flashcard, easily accessible online or on any mobile device, through the unique McGraw-Hill Language Lab app.
Reading practice is one of the best things your language learner can do. It provides context for the grammar and vocabulary you are studying, and it’s fun! Short 1-2 page passages in the French or Spanish have a glossary in the margins so you don’t lose fluidity looking up new words. The topics are cultural, so it’s a great addition to any language course. Parents, hand this over to your independent high school student. Read together with younger students. It’s a great way to build vocabulary! A few questions (with answers) about each passage let your student self-check their comprehension. The topics are high interest. It’s a practical addition any language program, probably after 1 year of good instruction. I would add this to year 2 and/or 3 for a high schooler. Listen to recordings of native speakers using the Language Lab app. Non-consumable, pb, 240pp ~Sara
