Advice to Higher French Candidates
These are very thorough and excellent revision notes but do get them really early on (June) as the Higher French course is very tough but all the more managable and rewarding with these well thought out and engaging notes and the listening CD is especially good for practice! Overall well worth the time and a very reasonable price for all the success and fun of learning French- foreign languages rule!
