Perhaps you are taking the language up again after a break from it? Teach Yourself Improve your French is the ideal way to extend your language skills if you already have some knowledge of French.

The book covers a wide range of topics of the sort you will want to talk about when in France and teaches you the kind of everyday language and features of speech that will enable you to communicate with confidence and feel comfortable taking part in conversation with native speakers of French.

There are activities based on the interviews and texts to help you remember what you ve learnt and put your knowledge into practice. The units are divided into sessions to help you organize your learning time and break up the material into manageable chunks -and there are reminders throughout to refresh your memory of points you have learnt.
