The latest national series for lower-secondary French combines
up-to-date and engaging language content with a greater focus on
students' intercultural competence. New language is introduced in a
carefully planned and consistent way, with regular reinforcement of
prior language as students progress.
Students are invited to explore French language and culture
through contemporary bandes dessinées drawn by a
professional French graphic artist based in Lyon. Up-to-date
photographs shot on location, along with authentic French texts and
realia, also enable deep reflection and engagement.

Learning About Both Culture and Language
Throughout the Student Book, students are encouraged to compare
their own language and culture with those of the francophone world,
noticing similarities and differences and making connections that
enable them to see how language and culture are inextricably
linked. They are encouraged to see their own language and culture
through new eyes and to use their insights for a practical purpose:
more meaningful interaction in French.
