Mais Oui! by Chantal P. Thompson, Elaine M. Phillips, Bette G. Hirsch
This text offers a unique, motivating approach to discovering the French language and the French-speaking world. A series of carefully crafted tasks help students develop their critical-thinking skills and take control of their own learning.
There are 12 chapters, plus one Chapitre complémentaire that includes a listening passage and a reading. The Culture et réflexion section, included in each chapter, presents information about the parts of the French-speaking world that relate to the chapter's theme.
Vocabulaire actif boxes throughout the text help students learn the new vocabulary introduced in each section. End-of-chapter vocabulary lists include English definitions.
En général activities have been placed before reading selections to increase student comprehension.
A text-specific web site includes task-based search activities, an extensive syllabus with chapter-by-chapter teaching suggestions, links to authentic French sites, maps, and downloadable transparencies.
