Overview


MAIS OUI! has been upgraded to an ENHANCED fourth edition. MAIS OUI! is now completely integrated with its very own iLrn™: Heinle Learning Center course (an all-in-one online solution for the introductory French course). The MAIS OUI! iLrn™ will provide learners with everything needed to master the skills and concepts of introductory French. The dynamic audio- and video-enhanced learning environment includes an audio-enhanced eBook with integrated activities, companion videos, an interactive voiceboard, an online workbook and lab manual with audio, interactive enrichment activities, diagnostic activities that generate a personalized study plan, and access to a variety of online tutorial services. MAIS OUI!'s success was founded on its unique guided approach that engages students in the discovery of the French language and Francophone cultures. Through its proven methodology that entails "thinking" then "observing and inferring" and finally "confirming," the program skillfully encourages students to discover for themselves how the language works. Multiple layers of meaning are uncovered and, as a result, students develop critical-thinking skills that empower them to take control of their own learning. What they acquire in this manner is stored in long-term memory, moving students more rapidly through the material and facilitating faster development of proficiency. In the ENHANCED fourth edition, the integration of iLrn™: Heinle Learning Center enhances this active-learning approach.
