Every chapter is divided into 3 sections:
Section 1: ‘écoutez!’ introduces the student to new language in the form of short dialogues and texts.
Section 2: ‘Découvrez les règles!’ shows how the language works. Learners must formulate rules about the language presented in the first pages (the ‘écoutez’ section). So, identify, state and memorise the structure!
Section 3: ‘à vous!’ contains a great variety of activities where students have to reproduce what they have learnt in the previous two sections. This includes activities such as écoutez, complétez, reliez, présentez-vous, dictée, jeux de rôles, prononcez bien, lisez, écrivez, cherchez and parlez.
