À Plus is a new course for 12-16 year olds, which makes learning French fun! With a clear and attractive layout, easy-to-understand instructions and resolutely action-based objectives, this course offers teenagers and young adults, even with little or no previous language-learning experience, an enjoyable and motivating introduction to French and the French-speaking world.
Each of the 6 units covered consists of 3 lessons, all leading towards a final project. Students learn about francophone culture through the elements of daily life presented throughout the course and through the 'Mag.com' double pages in each unit which present activities related to francophone history and culture (such as the history of the potato, French comics, the culture of Tahiti).
The course encourages active participation through games (miming, memory games etc). All of the topics cover themes that interest adolescents and the activities are motivating and engaging. This encourages more natural reactions and interaction between the students in French.
Authentic materials, such as photos and audio recordings have been selected specifically to match the themes and vocabulary covered in each unit. Additional materials such as games, test pages, grammar material and conjugation tables form part of the series and there are also further materials available on the Editions Maison des Langues 'Espace Virtuel' http://espacevirtuel.emdl.fr/
