Le nouvel Houdini – Comprehension-based™ Reader

NEW! Two Versions Under One Cover: Past and Present Tense

by Carol Gaab



Cleverly illustrated and written to be exceedingly entertaining and completely comprehensible!

Preview & Glossary Sample

Brandon Brown is dying to drive his father’s 1956 T-bird while his parents are on vacation. Will he fool his parents and drive the car without them knowing, and win the girl of his dreams in the process?

The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Le nouvel Houdini’, make this an ideal read for advanced beginning French students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and French), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire French without even realizing it! We hope you enjoy reading your way to FLUENCY!
