Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Ouvertures program is content based where cultural themes serve as the unifying element within each chapter. Culture is integrated into the teaching of every skill; speech acts, grammar, listening, reading, and writing skills provide the basis for the acquisition of knowledge and understanding of francophone culture. Language is used as a tool to explore the cultures of the French-speaking world with this complete one volume intermediate French program.
