Other information presented includes notes on five stages of language learning, a sequence for acquisition of the four skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), specific objectives of elementary French in the skill areas and in affective and cultural realms, an illustration of the structure of a lesson plan, a listing of specific instructional techniques for each skill area, notes on teaching culture, evaluation techniques for each skill area, an extensive listing of recommended resource and enrichment materials, a list of publishers, and a biblography.
