La récré is a French course for children aged 5-8 and is split into 3 levels, beginning with an initiation level followed by levels 1 and 2 (NB. In the later 2016 edition of the course, the levels are numbered 1-3.)
Developed in Lebanon, this course is distinctive in its international approach to teaching French to young children. It is a fact that exposing children to a second language while they are young allows them to optimise their learning potential, helping to shape the brain at its most flexible stage. Their lack of inhibitions and the fact that they take pleasure in imitating, miming, repeating and playing with sounds forms the perfect basis for learning a foreign language. This course develops these strengths by providing engaging and fun activities, which make use of songs, rhymes, creative tasks, recipes, stories and games. Due to the variety of tasks presented, units from this course can be integrated into lessons across the curriculum and this in turn motivates children to see learning a new language in a similar light to that of learning their native language.
Despite focusing mainly on oral work, this course allows pupils to discover reading and writing in French through simple activities. Progression is clear as material is revised and developed throughout each book. Pupils are introduced to different characters in each level of the course and the vocabulary and topics covered are accessible and relevant to young children all over the world, making this course perfect for use in any classroom. The 'Cartes images' included with each level can be used both alongside the course or independently to reinforce and practise key vocabulary.
Each level comprises the following components: Livre de l'élève, Cahier d'activités (not a part of the Initiation level), Guide pédagogique, CDs and Cartes images.
