In the spotlight - Stepping stones to speaking

The early stages of language learning can be frustrating for pupils who may know lots of words – but not the contexts to put them in. 50 French phrases (b small publishing) is a colourful introduction to language which gets pupils speaking in sentences from the start.

Why is it useful?

Use it as a stimulus for teaching ideas – particularly useful for the non-specialist looking for help with structuring their scheme of work. Alternatively, give pupils a copy of the book to take home so they can practise reading and speaking aloud and building their language confidence.
