Collins Gem French Vocabulary Builder
This is a guide to the basic vocabulary of modern French. The pack comprises "Collins Gem 5000 French Words" and a 90-minute cassette giving GCSE cover. The vocabulary is arranged in 50 everyday topics (eg the house, free time, health, weather, at the seaside), and each item is graded as essential, important or useful so that students can choose what to practise according to their particular requirements. "Essential" vocabulary covers the minimum requirements for GCSE and SCE exames at basic level and is recorded on the cassette. Students produce French words by listening to English prompts, and can then correct themselves by listening to the native French speaker. They can follow the words in their book and reinforce the link between sound and spelling, or use the cassette on its own and concentrate on improving their pronunciation. The basic word-lists are complemented by phrases and constructions to help sentence-building and the cassette provides interactive games and exercises at the end of selected topics. These give students the opportunity to practise further the words and phrases that they have been learning, whilst developing their oral skills.
