Early Start 1 helps young beginners enjoy their first steps in Primary French and finding out about everyday life in France. A full course suitable for years 3 and 4, Early Start covers all the main areas of LKS2 primary French through a DVD resource using native speaker children in their own homes and schools. Most films will be recorded in Northern French towns giving learners a further incentive to go and visit the North of France. The vocabulary is introduced slowly and clearly and leads to easily implemented verbal work but also fun and challenging written activities.
