Entre amis is a performance-oriented program designed to expand students' interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communicative skills by presenting and rehearsing situations similar to those they will encounter in real life. Based on a progressive approach, Entre amis features thorough coverage of all four-language skills with a strong emphasis on oral communication. The language presented and practiced is always embedded in a French cultural context.

  • Strong listening comprehension support includes instructor modeling in the Prise de contact, the initial presentations in the Buts communicatifs; student-to-student negotiating of meaning in Information Gap Activities; as well as activities on the video and the lab audio.
  • Streamlined grammar sequence offers early introduction of the verb aller, a clear explanation of the comparative and superlative, and an accessible presentation of the subjunctive.
  • Process Writing Activities begin with a Début de rédaction activity in the Intégration, constituting the first step of the writing process, and culminate with the Rédaction in the corresponding chapter of the workbook, providing students with many opportunities to improve their presentational skills by sharing personal information and ideas in contextualized writing assignments.
  • Readings with Strategies feature authentic selections accompanied by pre- and post- strategies.
  • Culture presentations include 30 strategically placed cultural capsules that provide a systematic tour of the francophone world and intelligent discussions of many up-to-date social issues.
  • Additional features include opportunities for self-testing, emphasis on active communication, and concise grammar explanations.
  • Simultaneous development of text and workbook ensures that the content of the Cahier d'activités closely matches the content of the textbook.

Review:

"This is a wonderful web site! I like the activities you designed with the French web sites, the flashcards and the extra grammar exercises."

"The "entre amis" and "a vous" sections are excellent exercises to get the students talking and the students really enjoy the pronunciation sections."

"The pacing is good and the integration of materials from previous chapters works well. We especially like the amount of cultural material, including "Il y a un geste.""

" Overall I like ["Entre amis"] a lot: it makes the teacher' s job easier because the program has so many great suggestions and activities.... It is a very good and rich program!"

" We use the entire book including photos, reference pages at the rear, the illustrative drawings, all the realia, the front cover, the inside covers (maps), all of which are excellent jump-off points for add-on/supplementary learning. The presentation is clear, usable and useful, [and] user-friendly.

" [The student web site] is a great tool for students."

" The explanations of grammatical functions, followed by a nice choice of exercises are very good.... The cultural infusions via body language, à propos, etc. are paced very well. The structure of "Entre amis" works for my students."

[About student web site] " This is a tremendous site! "Chapeau!" The sample quizzes per function are super... great reviews. The web exercises are good too."

" The book is very teacher- and student-friendly. The text is easy to study from and the workbook exercises are well conceived.

" The CD "Entre Amis" is a fantastic out-of-class tool.... I also love the Info Gap activities in the Instructor' s Resource Manual. "Entre amis" is a highly ' teachable' text, especially for beginning instructors who have limited practice and/or skills in the communicative teaching process.

" The student web site is very well conceived. There is a great variety of practice exercises as well as interesting websites with related activities. Also the ' flashcards' are a very original and effective way to learn the vocabulary. This site has everything a student could want for out of class practice."
