The Berthe series is ideal for Primary French learners or beginners and now two of the books are available for those starting Spanish. 

The twelve books in the French series and the two Spanish books have specifically been written for children beginning to learn the language. They are topic-based, have a word search, game and vocabulary list at the back.

‘..child-friendly stories…a lovely way of encouraging younger children’s MFL learning.’      From the article ‘Ten of the best MFL Resources.’  Scholastic Junior Education PLUS March 2008.

Berthe is an elderly, but seriously cool witch. She can handle anything, from the very odd game of rugby, to a night out with her strange friends, to a cookery session that goes with a bang! Her constant companion is her ice-cream loving cat – the dark, silent type who has a lot to put up with.
