Features & benefits

The Activity Book complements the Student Book with carefully sequenced activities designed to practise and consolidate the language structures, macro skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing) and learning covered in the Student Book.

The activities also reinforce and extend knowledge of French and French-speaking communities and cultures. Tasks at the beginning and end of each unit enable students to reflect on their own learning, developing greater intercultural competence and language learning strategies.
