For teachers

Are you interested in using the Rock Star French course with your class? The course has been developed to help motivate younger learners to learn the basics of French, and to give them a context in which to practise the language they are learning. Groups of learners can take on the role of a rock band, aiming to tap into the lucrative French market. Of course, to impress their French fans – and ultimately to sell more records – they’ll need to be able to communicate in French. The full course provides audio and video episodes which can equip your pupils with enough French to cope with a radio interview and to communicate with their French-speaking fans. If you would like to purchase Rock Star French for your school, please contact us.
