Description

This unit is designed primarily for students with no experience in French. It is based both on communicative methodology and a functional approach to language.

It also teaches the learner to talk about language and understand basic linguistic principles. Speaking, writing, listening and reading comprehension skills, will be developed through communicative activities.
