Description

This course covers the different language skills: oral comprehension and expression, written expression. This course’s particularity lies in the fact that the lessons are based on didactic material with specially created and realized animations. You will learn the language from dialogues between characters that you will be called upon to interpret yourself. The course is divided into six folders for a total of 30 lessons. Each lesson is accompanied by a downloadable audio file of each lesson and a downloadable pdf file illustrated with images of the dialogue. Some pdf files also contain additional lexicon.

Each lesson is also accompanied by two other pdf files for the written exercise and its correction.

At the end of the first five levels, you have a quiz with multiple-choice questions about the level’s lessons. At the end of the last level, a quiz with more questions about the whole course.

The course is preceded by an introduction that guides you through your learning path.
