    A Vos Marques! is an introductory course for students taking French as an option alongside their main degree course. It has been developed specifically for false beginners: students who have a slight acquaintance with the language.
    The course comprises a student's book, teacher's book and 180 minutes of audio (available for free download at http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415157285/ ) and, through fifteen chapters, follows the progress of an English-speaking student studying in Paris, whose achievements are designed to reflect those of the course user.
    Special features include:
    * activities involving pair and group work
    * an aid to self-assessment at the end of each chapter
    * hints on vocabulary learning
    * clear and accessible layout including integrated cartoons.
    The guidance offered by the teachers book is of particular importance, as lower-level classes in universities are often taught by native-speaking lecturers with little or no teaching training or experience.


    Sandy Tippett-Spirtou is a Lecturer and Brigitte Edelston is a Lectrice at the University of Dundee. Alison Andrews is a former lecturer at the University of Dundee.

    'A Vos Marques! takes students well beyond GCSE level in a lively and entertaining way with a particular emphasis on oral proficiency ... Grammar and vocabulary is carefully graded with regular revision exercises and a useful grammar guide as an appendix ... Oral and written exercises are varied and imaginative The accompanying teachers' book is excellent - full of suggestions for using and building on the activities in the student's book.' - Times Higher Education Supplement, November 2000
