Leaving Cert French

About Us

Plus Publications was set up in 1998 by Hugh Nagle to create language-learning resources for students and teachers. Our first product was the original Français Plus magazine that we published for Leaving Certificate students of French in Ireland.

That magazine was followed by a second major product in 2008, namely Learn French by Podcast. LFbP continues to be a hugely popular resource to this day all over the world. Our podcast episodes have been downloaded millions of times by listeners in almost every country. A significant number our listeners opt to purchase the very detailed PDF Lesson Guides which accompany the audio episodes in our podcast. There are already 200 lessons available on LFbP on a wide and exciting range of topics.

Despite the proliferation of electronic devices in our everyday lives, it is becoming increasingly clear that retention of information from traditional media – books and magazines – is better than from digital screens. This is just one of the reasons why we are very excited to be back in print with Le nouveau Français Plus.

Last but not least, we have recently created Leaving Certificate French Video Courses, one focusing on the Oral and the second centering on Writing Tasks. These courses will allow you maximise your grade in the Leaving Cert, focusing on specific, relevant topics.
