How to teach students at different competency levels in the same class:

We’re the only company that makes kits that incorporate 3 levels. In the same kit. Green is easy (absolute beginner), Black is advanced (practically mother tongue), and Blue is in between.

It’s simple, and it works because each book section has matching videos and step-activities.

Students go through an iterative, back and forth process between listening, reading and writing-speaking-producing, until they can complete….no, not complete…perform a summative end-of-unit task. (Action-oriented-neurolinguistics)

Please see below for excerpts of our 3 levels taken from a couple of kits:


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.
