Breaking the French Barrier is part of the acclaimed language series that engages students of all levels, giving them all the tools needed to find success on the path to fluency. First published in 1997, this series is now used throughout the country and world in high schools, colleges, and middle schools as well as by homeschool families and adult learners.
Building upon the foundation established in Level I (Beginner), Level II (Intermediate) begins with a review of the present, past, and imperfect tenses. New material includes rich vocabulary with thematic emphasis by chapter; the future, conditional, present perfect, pluperfect, present subjunctive, and present perfect subjunctive tenses; indefinites, demonstratives, and reflexive pronouns as well as informal commands and comparisons. Hundreds of exercises reinforce the amazing explanations offered by some of the country’s leading language teachers. As a special feature, all even chapters feature a rip-roaring adventure series, reminiscent of old-fashioned radio, recorded by native speakers with sound effects and music. Comprehension questions follow each episode. In addition, this eBook offers cultural articles (e.g., Saint Mont-Michel, Festival de Cannes, Le Village de Glace de Montreál) complete with audio, video and comprehension questions.
Vocabulary, grammar and cultural information are presented in this new Breaking the Barrier eBook in a way that can only be called revolutionary. Combining the brilliant instructional features of the iPad with the winning approach developed by acclaimed teacher John Conner, Dean of Faculty at Groton School and former member of the AP Test Development Committee, this groundbaking version of the series is just what any language learner needs to excel.
