"La Loupe" is a series of 18 French readers written specifically for pupils, in order to motivate and inspire them to read French books for pleasure. The series has three difficulty levels - the levels are clearly colour coded - in order to be accessible to all Key Stage 3 and 4 learners of French. This gives all pupils the opportunity to read for personal interest and enjoyment as the National Curriculum requires. The full series offers pupils the chance to read about topics they find interesting and exciting. The three levels give the teacher greater flexibility and allow pupils to progress at their own pace. The series is accompanied by a Teacher's Book which contains one worksheet, aimed at the corresponding level, per book.
