    We you aware of Memoria Presses First Start French Curriculum? It is great and not widely talked about. We started using it this year. I can’t say enough about it. Geared for grade 3-8 and it has two levels.

    I have the “teacher edition” only. Is this the same as the teacher manual? what components make the total program?
