100 titles for learners of French

100 titles to prolong your learning experience outside of the classroom.

Level by level, category by category, you will find here, in our searchable database, the educational material you need to make progress.

If your Alliance chapter participates in the MERLIN project, all those references are present in your media library, and you may use them to complete the online Guided courseworks provided to you on this website.

Narrowing down our selection to 100 titles has been challenging. Download here a complete list of over 600 useful references for learning French
