Great Commission Language’s Le Francais Facile has many aspects that we LOVED! It begins with a mix of French and English conversation so that new vocabulary can be learned and comprehension is increased. The language is introduced in very much the same way that we teach children to talk, word by word and in conversation…rather than trying to conjugate verbs, etc. There are many activities that my Principessa was able to pick and choose from…such as from Lesson 11: An “I Spy” pizza book, vocabulary index cards, playing the game “I Spy”, and an It’s Me! Book that the students are working on throughout the course. There are cultural notes within the lessons and an extra resource section in the beginning of the book where you can learn more about famous French people.

I love the thought that went into this book making it an excellent product for homeschool families…there is a CD-ROM which you can use to print over 200 activity sheet…you can pick and choose the ones you want and use this one book for all of your children. It is great for children of many ages…younger children would just take a longer time to go through it. There is an audio cd for practice with pronunciation.

I think one thing I LOVE best about this product is that when you finish one level, you can send Le Francais Facile to Wycliffe Bible Translators (following directions from the company) and receive a credit towards the purchase of the next level…talk about a blessing!

Sample Lessons

If you have looked over the sample lessons, but still cannot decide if this is a good fit for your family, you can purchase a sampler CD for $15. This Sampler CD contains the first few lessons of ALL of the programs! And - when you decide you're ready to purchase the full program, they will give you a $15 rebate (that's right, 100% of the purchase price of the CD!) and you can give the sampler CD to a friend!
