Increase Speaking Ability and Critical Thinking Skills With Parlons!
Need a simple and fun way to encourage class participation? You need Parlons: 25 Guided Dialogues in French. Get your first-year students talking about real topics—school, family, friends, leisure time, clothing, shopping, health, travel, celebrations, the environment, careers—in simple French. Throughout these guided conversations, your students will improve their vocabulary, increase their speaking ability, and develop critical thinking skills. Writing original, creative "twists" to the dialogues will enhance your classroom curriculum and turn oral presentations into fun activities. All students will be engaged both as presenters and listeners.
Parlons conforms to the National Foreign Language Standards by breaking down dialogues into the four standard functions: socializing, exchanging information, expressing personal feelings, and persuading others.
