Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The grammar sections are excellent…The cultural readings and literary readings are right on—I think both the students and I find them interesting and approachable."

"I like the way INTERACTION incorporates the vocabulary in the exercises throughout the chapters. In addition, I feel that the grammar exercises are designed to promote oral and written practice. Those features are appealing to me and could help an instructor teach the text with greater facility."

    This is a wonderful improvement over the previous edition! There

    This is a wonderful improvement over the previous edition! There are many new cultural notes about current issues in the Francophone world (Quebec, Cameroon, Senegal, Switzerland, Belgium, etc.), and the questions that follow are no longer simple "comprehension questions." Rather, they are activities that ask students to use specific grammar points studied in earlier chapters in order to talk about the readings. Therefore, the book lives up to its subtitle: langue ET culture (together). Also, each chapter "recycles" grammar points from earlier chapters. (For instance, after the chapter on the subjunctive, subsequent chapters ask students to continue using the subjunctive in cultural activities.)

    Another great feature is that at the end of each of the 10 chapters now, there is a short film with activities.

    Finally, Chapter 9 is now focused on specifically French-speaking communities in North America (Louisiana / Acadia, for instance).
