IMPORTANT NOTICE:

The Smart Sparrow Companion Website will not be available after December 31, 2020. It is free to access until that date. More information is available at CommeOnDitTextbook.com.

Beginning July 1, 2020, workbooks with exercises from the Smart Sparrow Companion Website will be available for purchase, as will workbook answer keys. They will both be sold in ebook format only.

Standalone textbooks are now available for purchase — and are priced to reflect this change.

Multimedia textbooks featuring the print textbook bundled with an access code to a companion website will not be sold after June 1, 2020. Instructors should alert students and campus bookstores to buy the textbook and not the multimedia for the Fall 2020 term.

C'est ce qu'on dit is a second-year (intermediate-level) companion textbook to the beginning-level textbook Comme on dit, and as such follows the same basic format and principles: students work with hundreds of samples of authentic, nonscripted spoken and written French and are led in a step-by-step manner from rule discovery to the acquisition of speaking, reading, writing, and listening competence. The homework activities and inductive presentation of grammar guarantee a completely student-centered approach, as student input is required in each and every exercise. Given the more advanced focus of C'est ce qu'on dit, however, exercises lead students to expand their competence not just of conversational registers but of formal written and spoken registers, as well.

Programs that take advantage of the full range of speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, and cultural expansion activities in C'est ce qu'on dit will find it to be a robust standalone program; however, in the event that programs prefer to include an outside content component, suggestions are offered in the preface and throughout each unit for ways to free up classroom time. By the end of C'est ce qu'on dit, an average student can be expected to have attained the competency objectives described as Advanced-Low on the ACTFL proficiency scale and as a B1 level on the Common European Framework scale (CEFR).
