"Route Nationale" is a differentiated and integrated approach to teaching and learning French for National Curriculum Key Stages 3 and 4 and the Standard Grade examinations. It provides authentic materials and a wide choice of valid activities whilst understanding the students' needs for a sense of enjoyment and motivation. Students are encouraged to take an active part in their learning and to develop their ability to work collaboratively, as well as independently. The teacher is supported with detailed notes, a wealth of ideas, solutions to activities, guidance on maximizing the use of the target language and a comprehensive range of integrated material.
Key factors which make the series different: provides a stimulating language-learning experience for students of all ability levels; develops students' ability to use French effectively for the purpose of practical communication, both within and outside the classroom; develops knowledge, understanding and a positive attitude towards speakers of French throughout the world; establishes an awareness of the language-learning process and thereby facilitates the learning of other languages; promotes a range of learning styles from collaborative work with peers to independent learning; raises awareness of gender issues; contributes to the general education of learners; and makes a useful contribution to other areas of the curriculum, especially IT, the humanities, health education, personal and social education. "Route Nationale" stage 4 completes the course to GCSE/National Curriculum Key Stage 4 and the Standard Grade examination. It provides continuity and progression from stages 1, 2 and 3. Alternatively, stage 4 can be used as a self-contained course for Key Stage 4, providing full coverage of the areas of experience and the programmes of study.
The core material ranges from Levels of Attainment 1-5, with the differentiated material providing a wealth of opportunities up to and including Level 10. This audio cassette of authentic recordings provides listening practice and stimulus material for further work, as well as a variety of original songs for enjoyment and consolidation.
