"The cultural element, sports and schools feature prominently which should ensure this textbook is a success with students who wish to continue to study French after AS Level. The selection of articles i particularly up-to-date with French culture whilst clear grammar and communicative exercises ensure progression." - Patrick Le Berre, Independent Schools Modern Languages Association
"The Grammar Workbook is, as usual with OUP, very clearly laid out and complete with self correction at the back followin a verb section." - Patrick Le Berre, Independent Schools Modern Languages Association
"this book explores the topics of study for AQA french A-level - it is a great aid to the final exams which I am currently sitting and has proved to be an
immense grammar and vocabularly aid to me and to my peers who have also used this book for study." - 4 Star Amazon Reviewer
"The book contains all you will possibly need for your learning of the topics throughout your AS/A level course, well, a very good initial structure, with which you can then expand upon, either with teachers notes or your own learning. Each section is broken up with key exercises that not only incorporate the subject at hand, but also work in short, yet effective grammar exercises that gradually get more difficult as your French progresses over the year. What's more, each topic has a review and summary section the end of it, thus allowing you to consolidate all that you have learnt and test your grammar skills again. For me it's a 5 star buy." - 5 Star Amazon
Reviewer (on the AS Self-Study Guide)
"Good all round book with exercises on different areas of grammar. Good for the intermediate student." - 4 Star Amazon Reviewer (on the AS Self-Study Guide)
"There is nothing that I can fault about this book. It covers all the relevant topics for AS and the way it is structured makes it extremely easy to digest all of the important parts. The grammar is laid out very well, and you can test yourself at the end of each unit. If you are studying French at A Level, then I cannot recommend a better series of books than Élan 1 or 2." - 5 Star Amazon Reviewer (on the AS Self-Study Guide)
"This book is perfect for AS students as it is highly recommended for such students. The great advantage of the product is that it is very very cheap
comparing to price which is usually sold by the colleges. I would highly recommend this book to you!!" - 5 Star Amazon Reviewer (on the AS Self-Study Guide)
"This book covers the necessary topics for the A2 course in a very structured format. Each section contains key excercises and effective grammar exercises which incorporate the relevant topic. Furthermore, there is a review and summary section at the end of each topic to allow you to test what you have just learnt. At the back of the book there is a section on essay writing - particularly useful for exam preparation - and a brilliant grammar reference section. Best A2 French book I have come across so far!" - 5 Star Amazon Reviewer (on the A2 Self-Study Guide)
"This book explores the topics of study for AQA french
A-level - it is a great aid to the final exams which I am currently sitting and has proved to be an immense grammar and vocabularly aid to me and to my peers who have also used this book for study. I would highly recommend Elan 2 to anyone studying A-level French. If you do buy it, enjoy... and good luck in your exams." - 4 Star Amazon Reviewer (on the A2 Student Book)
"The teaching staff like the natural progression of the textbook from the more familiar areas, topics and grammatical concepts, on to more in-depth topics and trickier grammar points. The consensus of opinion being that at GCSE level pupils have very little time to enjoy French as a language and to have access to the French culture. Elan supports the knowledge of staff and aid them in delving further into exam
related topics and also enables staff to introduce students to the multiple facets of French history, culture and technology. Each topic covered in the textbook gives sufficient information for students, but also opens up the possibility of further and deeper study of each topic." - Schoolzone review
