"Breakthrough" courses are aimed at adult education classes and also at the self-study learner. Each course offers authentic, lively, conversational language through a coherent and carefully structured approach. The books have a wealth of full colour illustrations including attractive photographs and artwork giving a real sense of the country and its culture. There are three hours of audio material to accompany this course. This intermediate level course is designed for learners of French with some basic knowledge of the language and aims to extend the learner's vocabulary and improve conversational skills. The new edition has been brought up to date with the inclusion of the Euro. A tapescript is available on the companion website.
