Product Description:

Publisher Description:

The all-in-one textbook/workbook is the centerpiece of our language curriculum. With essential vocabulary, grammar fundamentals and up-to-date cultural information, our core text is everything you need for a full year’s course. Upon completion of our three-level series, students will have practiced every important topic in French and have the confidence to read, write, and speak fluently.

Featuring thoughtful exercises, an exciting adventure series, authentic audio from native speakers, and a comprehensive testing program, our curriculum offers everything needed for language mastery.

LEVEL 1 (BEGINNER)

Our level 1 book assumes no prior knowledge of French. The “First Steps” lesson also presents all the sounds of the French language so that students can develop an authentic accent.

  • Theme-based, simple words and vocabulary offers students opportunities to learn words relevant to their daily lives at home, school, and beyond.
  • An action-packed dialogue series appears throughout the book offering students reading and listening comprehension practice.
  • Throughout the chapters, easy-to-understand explanations unravel these essential building blocks of language:

    1. nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, and prepositions
    2. the present, passé composé, imperfect, and progressive tenses
    3. formal commands

    Category Description for Breaking the French Barrier Level 1:
    Level 1 (Beginner) requires no prior language experience but getting used to new sounds and spellings can take practice. This level, therefore, spends a lot of time on pronunciation.

    Category Description for Breaking the Language Barrier Programs:

    The Breaking the Language Barrier (BLB) provides a core text/workbook/reference (aka the worktext) all in a one-on-one conversational format for the student. While other programs focus on listening and speaking alone, BLB provides in-depth grammar, writing and culture. Start out with conversation right away as part of Level 1’s Ten Steps. This section provides the student time to get familiar with the sounds of the language without any stress of grammar. All grammar will be explained in the lessons that follow. Your student will write directly in the non-reproducible worktext. Parents, don’t worry as you won’t need to know the language.

    New for ‘20-21 is the Online Instruction for the student (1 year access). The online access code provides 12 months of access to the online version of the print textbook, with integrated audio, video, cultural articles, answers, beautiful pictures of sites of interest, and notable people from the country being studied. The exercises are interactive. A student can click on any single answer, see immediately if he/she is right or wrong, and view the correction. There are also responsive flashcards with sound files, oral questions, video instructional capsules. But the content -- explanations, exercises, and dialogues are the same as the print book. Activities closely follow the worktext, but the online does not replace the worktext, rather they work together to create a complete learning experience. New for 2022 in the online access: answers now autosave and track student progress, composition prompts can be emailed to a teacher for review, and each student receives 90 minutes of coaching time for oral practice with Time2Talk! Homeschool Packages with CD are available while supplies last. The online instruction has replaced the CDs, and the CDs have been phased out by the publisher.

    Level 1 (Beginner) requires no prior language experience but getting used to new sounds and spellings can take practice. This level, therefore, spends a lot of time on pronunciation. Level 2 (Intermediate) starts with good review of Level 1 before presenting new material. Level 3 (Advanced) reviews the first two years, adding more advanced grammar concepts, expressions, and geography.

    Each course is one year in length and should qualify for a high school credit. The Homeschool Package is required to successfully use the program. Digital Access Homeschool packages include the aforementioned website access, and the following print resources: the Student Worktext, Answer Key, Test Packet, and a small pocket, laminated pocket guide (Oasis). Worktext and Tests are consumable, not reproducible. Package components are also available separately. ~Sara

    Recommended by my French tutor and I love this book. My wish is that it came with tear out verb reference pages. That is why I am ordering a second.

    Very good to find a quality introductory language learning resource without it being infested with lots of strange "Agenda" programming.

    I ordered it some time ago and never used it (1 year ago). Now I'm realizing I bought the curriculum but I never got the book with it. I got the student and teacher packets, but not the book : ( It's been over a year, so I don't have a case. <br /><br />I originally bought the curriculum because a homeschooling friend was using it and liked it.

    Coupled with the app, this is the easiest high school French program to successfully use that I have found

    What app goes along with this program?
    User on May 14, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: There is no app that is specifically for the Breaking the French Barrier program. Duo Lingo is a separate, unrelated app that has a free version which most people use.
