"My favorite aspect of the book is the layout with the grammar explanations and self-correcting exercises at the back of each chapter. It makes clear to students what is homework and what is class work. There is also a nice mix of structured manipulation exercises and communicative exercises."
"The book reflects a good attitude toward language in general and French in particular - attempts to involve students personally in the learning process, to show that French is a living, and evolving, and ethnically diverse language. The book is modern, with modern technological supplements, and the whole is visually pleasing. The students themselves seem to like it."
"[When I adopted Motifs] I was looking for a book that would combine a communicative approach with topics that students would be interested in and that they could relate to in terms of their personal lives. Also, a book that would not exclusively focus on France as a setting was preferable, as was a textbook which would offer a wide variety of exercises from different sectors. However, I wanted a book which at the same time would not eliminate grammar teaching altogether but leave teachers and students the option to use some grammar material in the classroom."
"The activities are excellent. They are nicely varied and at times delightfully creative."
