All students are not equal when it comes to the intermediate course-they all come to class with different levels of language preparation. It was because of this challenge that BRAVO! was created-and over the years it has evolved into a proven solution for student success. BRAVO! brings parity to the intermediate course, enabling students of diverse backgrounds to review first-year structures independently before delving into new material. A CHANCE TO LEVEL THE LEARNING FIELD Grammaire a reviser-a BRAVO! hallmark and a built-in course equalizer-allows students to self-assess and evaluate their readiness for each chapter's lessons. Grammaire a reviser acts as a diagnostic and/or assessment tool for both the instructor and the learner, checking for mastery of the forms and structures at hand. Those who need the review prior to class have it-and if they need more help on specific grammar points they can to the Workbook/Lab Manual (also available online on the QUIA platform). If they need even more help, they can access vMentor, a FREE live online tutoring resource. Students are empowered to come to class on a more level learning field with those students who are better prepared. As a result, more time will be spent in class using the structures functionally as well as practicing new material. No other intermediate French program offers more in-text and study tools to help instructors teach and students learn-effectively bridging the gap between introductory and intermediate course."

"BRAVO! handles the inherent difficulties of the intermediate course quite well..its strongest features (covering grammar structures, 3 divisions within each chapter, excellent reading passages, and writing exercises) make it a challenging, but excellent text."
"Through the incorporation of extended dialogues representing real situations, presentation of vocabulary and emphasis on expressions..and the inclusion of relevant cultural information, BRAVO! provides an excellent bridge between beginning and advanced French studies. Because the program offers a wealth of materials and resources, teachers can easily adjust the level of instruction according to students' needs, making BRAVO's pedagogical flexibility one of the text's key attractions."
"The Dossier personnel feature is a well-designed tool and in our experience contributes to improving students' writing skills and grammar awareness. The wide variety of exercises makes it easy for the instructor to pick and choose and keep things interesting and motivating for the students."
