A few short lines of poetry can quickly animate your French language classroom. This intercultural anthology provides an enjoyable and intellectually rewarding tool for students to develop confidence in French.

An unusual collection of easily accessible poems from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, Premiers Poèmes includes poets from around the francophone world. Students of all ages will enjoy the variety and breadth of material. The poems are loosely grouped by subjects or tone, including love, nature, humor and melancholy.

Most poems are short and simple enough for memorization, providing the repetition and recitation needed for perfecting pronunciation. Content includes glossaries of difficult words in each poem, thematically based vocabulary, and simple exercises for grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
