What is the VERBcast?
The VERBcast is a series of audio programmes which introduce you to French verbs and teach you all about the various tenses you need to know. Verbs are a very important part of any language, and in French it's important to know your verbs in order to make speak and write the language more effectively. At this stage of the year much of what you cover in the VERBcast will be revision, but hopefully you'll benefit from doing 15 minutes of mental revision each day in the run-up to your exam.
Why is the VERBcast different from learning from a book?
That's the real point of the VERBcast! You'll be learning in a very different way from normal. In fact, rather than looking at anything while you listen to the programmes, you'll be encouraged to switch off, close your eyes and relax completely so that you are in the best possible learning environment. The programmes use alternative learning techniques involving relaxation and visualisation. Don't worry - you'll be talked through everything on the recordings.
What do I need to join the VERBcast?
Each episode is an mp3 file which can be downloaded from this website.
What's all this about the enhanced VERBcast?
The enhanced VERBcast was a project which ran with students who attended schools in East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire and Argyll & Bute education authorities in Scotland during Spring 2006. It involved combining the VERBcast with SMS messages and interactive quizzes. Since the VERBcast is a legacy product it no longer supports the interactive SMS quizzes.
Is the VERBcast free?
Yes, it's entirely free!
