A few short lines of poetry can quickly stimulate your students and animate your French language classroom.
An unusual collection of short, easily accessible poems from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, Premiers Poèmes includes poets from France and francophone countries including Haiti, Sénégal, and Cameroon. 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. This third edition includes glosses of difficult words in each poem, thematically based vocabulary, and simple exercises for grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
Beautifully illustrated by artist Amy Young, this anthology provides an enjoyable and intellectually rewarding tool for students to develop competence and confidence in French.
