In this course you will learn how to talk about national holidays, how you celebrate them and what your traditions are. You will also learn the key French language skills for describing your home including the rooms and furniture and the domestic chores you carry out in the house. Also covered is the French vocabulary about aspects of the media such as what you watch on television and listen to on radio, and what you use the internet for. The phonetics section covers syllable, the French R and the correct pronunciation of vowels. Learners will also be directed to the relevant sections of grammar in a Grammar reference resource.

I liked this one a lot! I studied French before, and even found it to be good as review.
