What’s different about Booksmarts Planet French kits and courses
What makes our French kits different is the fact we are the only company that offers different levels within the same kit and that our content targets more “Big ideas”, more thematic life skills building, more cross-curricular subjects integration, more ethics and according to our customers, offers more in terms of humour and creative tone.
3 levels of difficulty: We offer different levels in the same books, online eBooks, including CEFR levels as well as our own colour-coded easy to use language level scale. This gives students stretch goals and revision opportunities.
This Planet French innovation works. It ties in with the best concepts discussed by Russian scientist Lev Vygotsky and others: successive approximation and the zone of “proximal development”. I know some of Vygotsky’s ideas are controversial but this one works (see teacher reviews video). French is a skill and these kits/units work in schools across the country.
French teachers love this, as they discuss using the kits in our preview video (fill the form on the right to access our secure demo video section and watch free previews including teachers explaining how they used booksmarts/Planet French kits/units).
Here are 3 pages showing examples of the colour-coded 3 levels of difficulty. Each of our kits includes texts and videos at different levels of difficulty so you can use each kit at different levels and quickly apply differentiated instruction.
Authentic French speakers in realistic situations. The books have a variety of texts and genres including descriptive texts, narrations, dialogues, and more!
You get the printed kits as well as online access to all the components for you and your students on all your devices.
The books are 28 pages full colour, beautiful photographs. All the videos are professional, top quality films with clear, levelled French and optional turn-on-off French subtitles.
