Description of En avant: Beginning French (Student Edition) 2nd Edition:
Students learn best when they are connecting- with authentic culture with each other as a community and with the language as used in real-world settings. En avant! sparks the curiosity that builds these connections as students drive toward communicative and cultural confidence and proficiency in the introductory classroom.The En avant! program is built around the following distinctive principles:Focused approach: En avant! concentrates on what introductory French students can be reasonably expected to learn allowing for sustained engagement with the material that respects the natural process of language acquisition. A reduced grammar scope leaves more time for the systematic review and recycling of vocabulary and grammar required for students to achieve mastery of first-year skills. Grammar topics that were deemed of secondary importance by our many reviewers are presented in the Par la suite section at the end of the book to allow maximum flexibility for those instructors who wish to extend their coverage of the grammar. Fortifying the acquisition process at every turn is LearnSmart evolutionary adaptive technology that builds a learning experience unique to each student’s individual needs. Through LearnSmart students engage in targeted vocabulary and grammar practice so they are prepared to come to class ready to communicate. Active learning: En avant! gives students the opportunity to explore language and culture through interactive activities that keep them focused and engaged. Vocabulary and grammar in En avant! is taught using an active learning approach nudging students to discover new vocabulary and language rules through a carefully balanced mix of inductive and explicit presentations and hands-on learning in the Communication en direct video section that begins each chapter as well as in the Vocabulaire interactif and Grammaire interactive presentations. Integration of culture: Building on the active learning theme students develop and apply critical-thinking skills in their analysis of the cultural trends and cultural products that are richly presented in En avant! The Communication en direct videos allow students to not only hear the language but to observe how the language is spoken in a cultural context. Vocabulary and grammar are often presented or practiced within a cultural context and throughout each chapter students are encouraged to make cross-cultural comparisons by responding to the thought-provoking questions such as those posed in the new Et chez vous? feature that accompanies the Chez les Français and Chez les Francophones texts. The culminating section of the chapter Culture en direct presents culture at the discourse level through cultural video presentations authentic texts feature-film clips and songs all related to the chapter theme. The stunning Salut de video segments shot in Paris Montréal Louisiana Tunisia and Tahiti also provide windows into the diverse cultures of the Francophone world.
