The course book used for beginners is
"Facon De Parler 1: French for Beginners: Coursebook: 5th Ed"
Throughout the course, material from other books is given to students to embellish the basic course. There are also CDs that go with the course that we use in class.
Intermediate and more advanced
Once students have finished a first year course they should be in the lower intermediate group. The course book is still used, but again other material is introduced such as grammar and more role playing and oral communication. There is also a Facon de Parler 2 book which follows on from the first course book.
