Teach Yourself Beginner's French New Edition (TYBL)

by Catrine Carpenter (Author)


"Teach Yourself Beginner's French" is the right course for you if you really want to learn French but are daunted by the prospect of complicated grammar, classes and coursebooks. This book starts right from the beginning and explains everything in simple English. There are hints throughout to make learning easy and you can learn at your own pace with plenty of practice of each new point. It is a friendly introduction to the language which will help you to understand and speak French sufficiently well to function effectively in basic everyday situations. The course will also offer you an insight into French culture. The book is divided into two main parts. Units 1-10 introduce you to the basic structures and grammatical points you'll need in everyday situations. Units 11-19 deal with everyday situations such as booking into a hotel, shopping, eating and travelling. They give you the opportunity to put into practice and consolidate the language you have learnt in the first ten units. There is a special section on pronunciation at the beginning of the book to get you started and a short test at the end of each unit so that you can check your progress and review any areas of difficulty. The language taught reflects the language that is spoken in France today and there are lots of references and example texts from the internet which ensure the book is up to date. By the end of the course, you'll be able to communicate in a wide range of real-life situations and have all the practical information you need to enjoy your next trip to France. Two accompanying cassettes or CDs are available separately or in a pack with the book. This is the leader in self-learning with more than 300 titles, covering all subjects. Be where you want to be with "Teach Yourself."
