These cards introduce French with eight basic vocabulary words in each of seven categories: nature, vehicles, market, animals, clothing, colors and home. Each card is printed with the word, an illustration of the word, and the word in a sentence. In French on one side of the card and in English on the reverse. Directions as well as suggestions for using the cards as starting points for storytelling and play acting, and honing categorization skills are included. Our 2018 update features illustrations by Monika Forsberg.
