La Famille Ntow
A well-known French reader for JHS and SHS. First published in 1992, it is in its 26th year of educating Ghanaian students.
This reader has authoritative approval of the Textbooks Committee of Ghana Education Service since 1993 and is recommended for use by Junior and Senior High Schools. Even in primary schools where French is studied seriously, children of P6 find La Famille Ntow very useful since it teaches them everyday sentences.
La Famille Ntow is full of everyday language in a familiar Ghanaian context. The most common verbs have been conjugated in the major tenses and there are useful exercises with answers, besides a rich vocabulary which gets one to speak good French in no time. For those who may have problems with sounds of French, there is a table to sort out your difficulties with or without a teacher.
