TOS Review: Great Commission Language~French, Level 1A


What is the purpose of learning a second language in your home school? Is your main reason to just to cover those foreign language credits for your high schooler? Or does your child feel called to the mission field someday?

And he (Jesus) said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:18-20.

Great Commission Languages is an easy way to learn French. Great Commission Languages is committed to providing quality language products to both the homeschooling and general education community. They are evangelical Christians, which means their  products are unapologetically written from a Christian perspective. Extensive cultural information, as well as scripture verses in the foreign language in question, is provided with all their products in the hopes it will assist those desiring to carry out the Great Commission.They assure that their products are not Bible curriculum, per se; the scripture memorization components are optional.

Great Commission Languages - Easy French Level 1AEasy French is a complete French curriculum. It’s easy to teach, even if you don't know any French at all! The funny stories and interesting activities make it fun to learn. It teaches French language and French grammar through literature-based entertaining storylines. Your student will learn French Culture of France and Québec with optional projects (including idiom projects).

A digitally mastered, enhanced CD for audio and computer is included. There are also French Scripture, songs, games and coloring pages to enhance learning. Printable, free activity sheets means no purchase of consumable activity books or photocopying is necessary.

We were provided with the opportunity to use and review Le Français Facile! Level IA, which is the first half of their existing Level I curriculum, updated with a few different stories to make the program appeal more to an older audience (Grade 7 or so and up).

They've integrated grammar and other exercises right in to the textbook, meaning no messing around with printing out activity sheets, preparing binders, etc. There are also separate test booklets and answer keys available for purchase.

At first the Botanist Boy was a bit reluctant to sit down and listen to the lessons on the CD, following along in the text. But after a few times, he told me that he'd really like to learn French, and "this isn't so bad after all!"

I think it would be good for each of my children to learn another language, or more, if possible. My grandfather was fluent in at least three languages besides English. He worked in the mission field, where he needed that knowledge, too. Sadly, I don't think I inherited his gift of tongues.

If my children wish to go to the mission field, even if it's on short-term mission trips, the knowledge of foreign languages will be very useful to them!

Great Commission Languages, French, Level 1A, can be purchased for $84.95. You'll also find other Easy French products, as well as Easy Spanish.
