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.

Level 1 assumes no prior knowledge of French.  The "First Steps" lesson presents all the sounds of the French language so that students can develop an authentic accent.  

  • Theme-based words and vocabulary offer 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
