    Good afternoon,
    Could you please recommend me a French textbook/interactive for Year 7 and 8? I looked at Studio 1 and Dynamo 1.
    Thank you!

    Allez is good. Much prefer it to Studio. It's by Oxford and has a great Kerboodle package.

    I've not taught French to any great extent for about 3 years, and haven't used Studio, though we have it and my colleagues have seemed happy with it. But I too have heard good things about Allez.
    Might be worth talking to the various publishers: they are often ready to give you a trial copy or a week or two free online as a taster, that sort of thing.

    Thank you. I checked « Allez » but it is from 2014. I looked at Dynamo which is 2018. I am just concerned as I would like something up to date with the French language.

    Allez is excellent. It fits in line beautifully with the new GCSE specifications so is a great KS3 book.

    Thank you! So Allez is current? I thought it was published in 2014...

    Allez is good- not a fan of Studio the print is very small for texts making it hard for pupils... Allez seems a nice balance even if not keen on graphics
