The best-selling Breakthrough courses are aimed at Adult Education classes and also at the self-study learner. Each course offers authentic, lively, conversational language through a coherent and carefully structured approach. The books have a wealth of illustrations including attractive photographs and artwork giving a real sense of the country and its culture. There are three hours of audio material to accompany this course. This third level course is designed for learners of French with a reasonable knowledge of the language (perhaps two or three years of study whether in classes or less formally) and aims to extend the learner's vocabulary over a wide range of topics and improve conversational and reading skills. The new edition has been brought bang up-to-date with the inclusion of the Euro.
