Franco-Phonics, Etc.

This teaching aid features a substantial number of instructional devices which appear not to have received their due in high school and college classrooms. Its main component: well over a thousand so-called nonsense sentences of the author's own creation listed under 45 headings. Intended for pronunciation practice, these sentences concentrate heavily on a given sound, with many qualifying as humorous tongue twisters. The etc. of the book's title pertains to a miscellany of pedagogical elements and devices. The author has also used the concentrative approach in 5 of the 14 sections that follow the 78-page phonics component. Included here, amongst other things, are motivational themes for a day or week, a variety of items for opening a day's lesson, a lexical minefield whose booby traps are bound to engender laughs, and lists of names of French dogs and cats in justice to the omnipresence of these pets on the French scene.
