Immersing students in the world of French language and culture, MOTIFS: AN INTRODUCTION TO FRENCH, Enhanced Sixth Edition, continues to set the standard for first-year French courses. Students learn through lively, culturally authentic contexts that enable them to communicate on larger, real-life themes, such as housing, school, food, work, and relationships. Offering a systematic study of French, the MOTIFS program provides the structures, vocabulary, communication strategies, and cultural background that enable students to think critically about different points of view, to share about themselves, and to learn about others. The sixth edition maintains its most popular readings while updating others and adding new readings to foster cross-cultural comparisons. Readings are also now enhanced with audio. Packed with digital resources, the iLrn Heinle Learning center also includes numerous enhancements, including new "Video Voyages!" Francophone culture videos and improved instructor functionalities to facilitate assigning activities, providing feedback, and customizing your eBook. The enhanced edition also includes a brand new "Videothèque" section at the end of each chapter, with activities linked to thematic cultural videos on iLrn and DVD.
