Using this Dual Language Reader
The key to mastering any foreign language is developing the ability to “Think” in that language. With the English text on the left (even pages) and the French translation on the right (odd pages), you’re able to comprehend, precisely, the ideas being conveyed without turning a page! For those students who wish to test their ability to read the French text, simply fold the left page back to easily hold & read each page (or the entire book) in French; if you have difficulty understanding exactly what the French text is trying to convey, you can quickly look at the English text to help make the concepts clear and get yourself back on track.
Another useful technique (for beginners, especially) is to read the English translation first and then, once the concepts are clear, move on to reading and comprehending the French text. Your goal, other than enjoying the process of learning, is (again): to develop the ability to “think” in the new language. A Dual Language Reader is an excellent tool for helping you to do exactly that!
