"le Genie du manguier" is a very interesting piece of African "orature". The text and related activities are ready to be used. It offers a variety of activities including comprehension and structure. But, for secondary school teachers or French instructors dealing with slow learners or srtuggling students, it might be necessary to reduce the length of the text.

Technical Remarks:

easy to use. Goog presentation of the material.
