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.
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.
Promenades video illustrates real-life French in use, from the fully-integrated Roman-photo episodic video to Le Zapping TV clips and short films, to the new Panorama culturel videos. Watch in class or assign as homework to provide a context for the language.
Included in pronunciation tutorials, speech recognition analyzes student production in real-time and objectively determines whether a student knows the word. It provides feedback that helps students reflect on their language patterns and increases awareness of their pronunciation.
Lesson vocabulary words are grouped thematically in new tutorials. Each term comes with audio, an image, and an English translation.
Culturally relevant Communicative Goals at the start of every lesson with accompanying Can-Do Statements at the end of the lesson let students know what they will be able to do in French as they progress through the program.
