Façon de Parler 2 is the second stage of this lively, highly illustrative and communicative French course designed to take adult beginners to GCSE level and beyond. Now in its fourth edition, the book has been revised and updated to reflect the innovations of the technological era, while retaining the strengths and familiarity of the previous edition. Illustrated dialogues and exercises, comprehension questions, structured pair- and group-work activities, grammar notes and regular revision sections to consolidate learning feature in this gently paced and unintimidating course. Façon de Parler 2 is ideal for home learners as well as class study. Used with the accompanying audio CD pack and brand new Façon de Parler 2 Activity Book, this best-selling course provides the complete package for adult learners in French.
This Activity Book mirrors each of the units from the Façon de Parler 2 Student Book, enabling students to complement their lessons. The book includes extra reading and comprehension tasks, games, quizzes and puzzles. 'Pense-bête!' boxes offer a reminder of basic grammar rules before beginning an activity while 'Coin info' sections provide further information on French culture and customs. Units end with a 'Bilan' exercise designed to check vocabulary and grammar points covered in the unit. Façon de Parler 2 Activity Book is a valuable addition to this course, constituting an essential source of practice and ideas for both students and teachers alike.
