Beginner's French with Noisette the Cat


This story and workbook will introduce you to 160 French words and phrases, and to ten basic concepts of French grammar and language. Read about Noisette, a little cat who lives in Paris with the grand-mère, an elderly woman who loves to paint. Every lesson contains a short ‘story’, with French words embedded and translated in the text. After the reading, memorize the new words, learn a bit of grammar and do a short grammar exercise. Also included are ‘fill in the blanks’ pages for practise or testing, a complete list of vocabulary, and extra review ideas.

Note: as this is not an audio product, the teacher/parent must have a prior basic knowledge of how to pronounce French words.

Canadian Winter Homeschool Materials include both English and French materials (the two official languages of Canada). These materials may be of interest to homeschoolers who are looking for non-religious and non-American content. Our methods are simple and old-fashioned; it is presumed that a parent will help the student to use the material. Canadian spelling is used in general. Many thanks to my homeschooled daughter, Marlene, for her great ideas, and my husband, Pierre, for his unfailing support and love!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
