Product Description

Don't let unfamiliarity rob your children of a second language! Designed for parents who have no previous background with French, First Start French is designed for students in grades 3-8, or as a gentle introduction for older students. Based on a four-day/week schedule, students are gradually introduced to vocabulary, dialogue and grammar before reviewing, translation exercises, grammar questions and reviewing again before a quiz; thirty minutes is recommended for each day, depending upon the child's ability. Students will learn about pronouns, negatives, asking questions, prepositions, comparisons, verbs, French culture and more, for a complete beginning course in French vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. Written work is supplemented with an audio CD that includes vocabulary, French songs and a pronunciation guide.

The teacher's guide contains information critical to teaching the course, as well as reduced student pages surrounded with direction and lesson notes. Correct answers are overlaid in blue ink. 128 pages, softcover.

The student book contains all exercises, lesson vocabulary, new grammar, song lyrics and music with translation, and cultural essays. 128 pages, softcover.

    Moves too fast!

    I love the layout of this course: it's clean and concise. It includes classic French quotes, grammar, and dialogue. However, we have found that it moves too quickly for most middle schoolers. I believe that the content should qualify for the first year of High School but it doesn't provide enough review or helps to really teach the concepts. I'd like to see this program revised and improved. That said, there are few French programs on the market and I'm grateful that Memoria Press made a strong attempt.

    This is the second French curriculum we've tried, and I've found it to be very easy to implement for a parent/teacher with no French background. The format is laid out well and is easy to follow. The lessons are short enough to not overwhelm, but are definitely substantial. The First Start French website has downloadable quizzes, which is a nice added benefit.The only thing I've not liked, which is what earned it 4 stars instead of 5, is that on the audio cd, the speaker speaks fast and doesn't pause long enough between words to allow the student to repeat what she's saying. Speaking fast does force the student to listen intently to catch the pronunciation and accent, but it's frustrating to try to repeat the words and not have time. Overall, I've found this to be a great beginning to learning French. I'm using it with my 11 year old and she enjoys this very much.
