Comme on dit, Première année de français, Bundle

Book + Website Access Card

Comme on dit, a comprehensive first year French textbook program, engages students in the learning process from day one using an inductive methodology centered around guided observation and rule discovery. Together with students' communicative needs and an analysis of their most pervasive transfer errors from English, the everyday speech patterns of 100 native speakers — culled from 150 hours of unscripted recordings — form the linguistic backbone of the method. Using a workbook format, students examine, compare, and contrast this wide variety of authentic discourse to discover both individual and shared language use and cultural perspectives. Additionally, students systematically and progressively acquire the fundamental sounds and rhythmic patterns of spoken French, which leads them to develop solid pronunciation and conversational fluency as well as notable listening comprehension skills. To aid instructors in effectively implementing this distinctive approach, the Teacher's Edition textbook comes with filled in answers for all activities, plus teaching notes in the margins and extensive ancillary resources online. By the end of one academic year, students with no prior French instruction can expect to achieve intermediate-mid to intermediate-high proficiency on the ACTFL scale.

• Emphasis on providing students with the tools and skills to help them communicate early on about topics relevant to them and their daily lives
