Promenades, 3rd Edition

Promenades introduces students to the French-speaking world, teaching students real-life skills so they can understand conversation, express their own ideas, and interact meaningfully with other French speakers.


Practical Grammar Review
Promenades covers grammar with a focus on practical use, reviewing more common irregular -ir verbs before regular -ir verbs. Grammar points are reviewed in a single spread, with practice activities immediately following.
Spotlight on Culture
Local, regional, and global culture is highlighted throughout Promenades through readings, video, and practice activities. Learn varied local customs with Lecture Culturelle and visit French-speaking countries with Panorama.
Engaging Video
Promenades video illustrates real-life French in use, from the fully-integrated Roman-photo episodic video to Le Zapping TV clips and short films. Watch in class or assign as homework to provide a context for the language.
Build Language Skills
Students develop their language skills in Promenades with frequent listening, speaking, and writing exercises. Reading passages in the final two units practice the grammar and vocabulary students have learned.
Clear Design
The easy-to-navigate design of Promenades engages students with pages designed for maximum instructional impact and visual appeal. Activities and practice opportunities are clearly denoted on every page of the text.
Supplemental Resources
Additional resources enhance the presentation, practice, assessment, and accessibility of Promenades content. Included are audio and video scripts, lab and testing audio, presentation slides, an activity pack, and much more—all hosted on the Supersite.
