For each phoneme, students learn an action, as well as the graphemes associated with that sound. Cheerful colourful cartoon pictures link the actions to the sounds and help to facilitate learning. The comprehensive teacher’s guide is in full-colour and provides a clear step-by-step approach to introducing pupils to French phonemes. It contains practical advice, activities and guidance, along with photocopiable games and reference sheets.

Through using Physical French Phonics your pupils will not only learn to pronounce correctly the French vocabulary introduced, they will also gain the skills to tackle any new vocabulary they encounter with confidence.

The accompanying electronic files have been reformatted to ensure compatibility with interactive whiteboards, tablets, smartphones, and computers. It contains everything you need to teach French phonics successfully:

  • Video clips of French speakers saying each sound and performing the associated action
  • Video clips of French speakers saying and acting out keywords, carefully selected to introduce all the French phonemes
  • Video clips of French speakers demonstrating how liaison works in practice
  • Audio clips of all the phonemes and words introduced
  • Interactive whiteboard files for all the phonemes allowing you to make your own phonic resources to accompany any topic.

In this 3rd edition, the electronic files are now presented on an accompanying USB Drive.

The representation of sounds through letters in any language should be seen as a code. It is hoped that Physical French Phonics will provide the key needed to break this code for all French students.

Watch these sample video clips from the USB Drive to see how the actions and sounds can be used to pronounce and spell marron and septembre.
