This introductory text offers a unique, motivating approach to discovering the French language and the French-speaking world. Immersed in authentic input, students learn to think independently, analyze, draw analogies, and infer meaning. A series of carefully crafted tasks develops critical-thinking skills and empowers students to take control of their own learning. This edition reflects the author team's effort to guide students to develop fuller answers with sentence-level production that characterizes the intermediate level of proficiency.The text is manageable for two-semester courses. There is a Chapitre preliminaire, 12 chapters, plus a Chapitre complementaire that includes only one listening passage and one reading selection.Beginning in Chapter 3, Notes culturelles are in French. Reflective questions added to these cultural notes facilitate cultural comparisons and classroom discussion.Synthese culturelle explores the views of native French speakers on a variety of chapter themes, examining how perspectives vary from culture to culture.
