Quoi de neuf ? is a new national series for lower-secondary French, combining up-to-date and engaging language content with a greater focus on students' intercultural competence.
In the student book, 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.
Throughout the text, 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 use their insights for a practical purpose – more meaningful interaction in French.
The Activity Book complements the Student Book with carefully sequenced activities designed to practise and consolidate the language structures, macro skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing) and learning covered in the Student Book.
The activities also reinforce and extend knowledge of French and French-speaking communities and cultures. Tasks at the beginning and end of each unit enable students to reflect on their own learning, developing greater intercultural competence and language learning strategies.
