Reading suggestions

The French and history teachers together with our secondary school librarian have put together a list of books to give you some reading tips, both for the holidays and for the school year.

The lists are quite long and there is something for all tastes and all readers. However, they are neither compulsory nor exhaustive, simply some suggestions that are suitable for the age groups specified. 

Pupils can choose novels adapted to their level of French from the publishers Hachette Fle or Cle International.  Included are classics of French literature in simplified versions, but also detective novels, adventure novels, youth novels and more.


Enjoy the reading and your holidays!
