9780618420940: Mais Oui! (French Edition)

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 complémentaire" 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.
  • Synthèse culturelle explores the views of native French speakers on a variety of chapter themes, examining how perspectives vary from culture to culture.
