Berthe Va à Paris

Berthe goes to Paris with her beloved cat. She enjoys visiting the sites. Her cat has other ideas. It contains a story, a word search, a quiz, a speaking game, a list of vocabulary and a QR code linking to a recording of the story. There is also a word detective sheet available on this website. Some of the pages contain a lot of sentences and although the French is simple I would suggest that this book be used by those who have been learning for a while, rather than by those who are very much beginners. 28 pages.

For UK residents £6.45 including 95p postage
