Publisher's Description

Façon de Parler 1 is the first of a two-volume, highly illustrative and communicative course, specially designed for the adult beginner. Angela Aries and Dominique Debney guide you step by step through all the basic language skills you need for holiday, business or exams and there is plenty of opportunity to practise what you have learned as you go along.

The Course Pack contains a full colour Façon de Parler 1 Coursebook, three audio CDs and a Support Book with answer key and recording transcripts.

Now in full colour, each of the units contains the following:
- lively, illustrated dialogues and comprehension questions
- structured pair-work and group-work activities
- basic vocabulary and useful expressions
- grammar notes
- listening comprehension (for work with the recordings)

There are also regular revision sections to consolidate the main topics and grammar points, while a useful reference section is followed by a French-English end vocabulary.

Façon de Parler 1 is ideal for group work and can also be used for individual study and revision purposes.

Editorial Reviews

"This French course is very well known and highly effective: it is widely used in adult education classes ... I recommend it unreservedly."Amazon user June 2010
"It has a nice broad outlook and progresses slowly but surely. Grammar inserts are also helpful. For adult groups it is an excellent book, as always solo learners need incentives to continue."Amazon user June 2010
"This book has made learning so much easier and more fun. I have the CD on my laptop and can listen to the short dialogues in between other work. The units are also of a manageable length and so I tend to dip in and out of them throughout my working day. ...I can heartily recommend this publication."Amazon user June 2011
