We have been publishing easy French readers and audiobooks for
the second language learner since 1970. Our books reflect a variety
of themes and styles, and are written in easy-flowing French, using
everyday vocabulary and expressions.
Aquila readers are not translations or adaptations: They are original, authentic, Canadian-authored, age and level-appropriate texts especially written for the young reader of French as a second language. Most of our books are written in dialogue format and will amuse readers with short, humorous stories in everyday situations: School, family, sports, ordering meals, friends, winter holidays, shopping, the environment, anti-bullying, racism, media literacy and many more familiar, everyday themes children, young adults and teenagers can relate to.
Books contain an exhaustive French-English vocabulary (optional) and a multitude of activities for comprehension, vocabulary and easy grammar.
Our audiobooks (CDs) have been recorded by professional actors playing the roles of the characters in the stories. Each recording features a realistic audio background and appropriate sound effects. These CDs are an ideal way to foster interactive learning and verbal competence.
