"Motifs is a solid choice for a college introductory French program, given its resources online and its emphasis on teaching students how to speak French in real, contemporary settings and contexts."
"A solid beginning French program that introduces students to the language and culture of the francophone world and at the same time provides the building blocks for communicating in a global society."
"...Motifs is a well-rounded textbook package that seeks to foster both communicative and cultural competence. It provides a solid foundation in terms of structures and vocabulary upon which subsequent classes can build while maintaining student interest through the colorful layout of the text and the many on-line options."
