French Years 1–4

Eli Blume & Gail Stein | Year 1 • Year 2 • Year 3 • Year 4

The most comprehensive review of French language available!

Each level aligns with ACTFL’s Five C goal areas and provides an in-depth review of grammatical topics, word study, and French civilizations and culture.

Brief, clear explanations of grammatical structures are followed by exercises moving from simple assimilation to more challenging manipulation of elements and communication. Exercises provide extensive oral practice as well as reinforcement through written responses including English-to-French exercises intended to sharpen writing skills. The topical organization allows teachers maximum classroom flexibility.

Carefully controlled vocabulary ensures content comprehension as students practice and apply grammatical structures.

Comprehensive assessments include interpretive communication, interpersonal writing and speaking, presentation writing and speaking.

French Four Years features an AP® French Language and Culture practice exam, portfolio assessments, and authentic literature excerpts.
