The purpose of the BonPatron Vocabulary Guide is to provide instructors with a starting point for teaching common words. The guide contains approximately 500 common words and expressions and covers a wide range of topics.
Each category contains a table with English and French columns that can be hidden as the student moves from comprehension to production. After initial exposure to words via English/French translation, students can listen to a word, then write it out to confirm that they are able to produce it. Finally, each section contains a series of interactive, vocabulary-building exercises and a game.
You can find a description of how to move through the Vocabulary Guide here.
Once students are ready to build sentences with their vocabulary, they can make use of BonPatron's Grammar Guide and Grammar Checker.
