French Language Teaching with Aesop/Ésope

Ésope encore

Short Fables in Easy French

The Ésope encore series has been created by an experienced teacher of French as a Second Language who knows how difficult it can be to find stories written at a level that is simple enough for beginning students.

Watch your students become fully engaged in learning when given materials that are familiar as well as easy to read.Oral participation becomes fun and less threatening when these short, simple scripts are used for classroom skits, puppets ........or...... dressed up for stage presentations.

Do you have students who prefer to express themselves through art?

The comic cells are perfect for letting students do just that!

(It is also a great way to check a student's comprehension of vocabulary and storyline.)
