Madame Thomas' French Lessons for Beginners on CD
Aimed at beginning-level students, Ah Bon ? Méthode de français offers a modern approach to French instruction, using technology (Web 2.0) and flash cards as the core medium of language instruction. Instead of English-to-French translation, Ah Bon ? uses image-to-French language acquisition so that students achieve a more natural, native-like proficiency.
This proficiency gives learners the confidence and comfort level to go a step beyond the vocabulary, and experience the language through meaningful and realistic activities for optimal language acquisition at the beginning level.
