Numbers are ubiquitous in every culture. For example, counting rhymes and French lore are tightly entertwined. Through simple and catchy rhyming songs, French-speaking children have long enjoyed and still continue to enjoy the power of numbers.
Whether you find yourself studying in a classroom, or shopping or just balancing a book from the comfort of your home, knowing your numbers is a necessity of life. As children, we engage in numerous counting games. We play card games which are clearly marked with numbers, board games with dice requiring us to count up or down a number of cells. The truth is we can’t escape numbers no matter where we are or what we do. This lesson is therefore a must.
