ISBN-13: 978-0563472568

The textbook costs approximately $43, including CDRom. (You may also opt to buy the activity book and audio CD that accompanies the textbook – approx. $30). To encourage learning through immersion in the language, the text is entirely in French, so you may also choose to buy a French/English dictionary or app as an extra learning resource.

You can purchase the textbook from Abbeys Bookstore (131 York Street, Sydney). It is close to the CBD campus and offers a 10% discount to Sydney Community College students.

Please note: sometimes a course start date is postponed until there are enough enrolments. It is therefore wise to purchase your textbook after your course has been confirmed (usually within three working days of the proposed start).

h.5 What to bring to class
