Help me prevent a macaron mess!

I went all the way to France and came back with a box of Alsa Macaron Mix. Problem: I don't speak French. How do I do this?

I've heard they're hard to make, and a packet seemed like it might be easier than attempting to do this from scratch. As there was a 2 for 1 offer on, I bought one box to bake with a bilingual friend who is infinitely better at baking than I, and the other I would like to attempt with my petite cherie this weekend.
I've made packet cakes often as a child, but macaron mix doesn't exist in the UK and I can't work it out from my very bitty grasp of French - I have a terrible habit of forgetting that baking instructions are not rough guidelines, so it would be good if there is anyone who's made them and can tell me what to do.
Here is an image of the back of the packet

. I've looked online, but I can't see anyone going through them step by step in English - English 'macaroons'
are something different entirely which doesn't help - or written French.
