Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Horizons is the most engaging and well-conceived introductory textbook currently on the market."

"I love how the activities seem like natural opportunities to communicate, rather than pedagogical exercises, and how all the skills-reading, writing, listening and speaking-are addressed in a strong cultural context."

"At SUNY New Paltz, we love HORIZONS' approach. It is effective, and we have seen more students continue studying French after completing their language requirements. Adding a web-based activity on current subjects will enhance the learning and appeal to students and instructors."

"The book is engaging, attractive, and, most importantly . . . well planned out and expertly structured so that students get the most of their book."

"Grammar explanations are clear, accessible, and complete . . . The additional tutorials on iLrn™ and tools in the eBook complement these well for students who don't seem to get enough from reading the explanations."
