First French has been developed specifically for children of pre-school and early primary school age. No reading ability is required. There is an option to display the text of what you hear, and if this is selected, then clicking on the text allows you to hear the words repeated.

The package consists of 32 topics and a range of activities to use these with. Some activities can be used with a large group and a whiteboard. Others are more appropriate for individual pupils at a computer.

Snap

The Snap game:

One of three games that can be used to practise the vocabulary. "Snap" involves two pupils sitting at one computer. As the pictures change, the players have to be ready to press their chosen key when the two are the same.

The other two games are "Memory" (matching pairs), for one or two players, and "Puzzle" (identifying objects from some of the pieces of a jigsaw). "Puzzle" and the two player version of "Memory" are suitable for whole-class use.
