S'engager dans la vie professionnelle en français, niveau avancé

Deborah S. Reisinger, Mary Beth Raycraft, and Nathalie Dieu-Porter

Affaires globales uses an interdisciplinary multiliteracies approach to help students develop the cultural knowledge and language skills necessary to pursue a career in the francophone world. Over the textbook's seven units, Affaires globales weaves in contemporary themes such as entrepreneurship, sustainable development, and global engagement with discussions of tourism, business, marketing, fashion, diplomacy, environmental studies, and global health. Lessons incorporate authentic materials from across the francophone world, from France to Quebec to sub-Saharan Africa.
Première année de français
Student's Edition

Claude Grangier and Nadine O'Connor Di Vito

Comme on dit with website, a comprehensive first-year French textbook program, engages students in the learning process from day one using an inductive methodology centered on guided observation and rule discovery. Together with students' communicative needs and an analysis of their most pervasive transfer errors from English, the everyday speech patterns of 100 native speakers—culled from 150 hours of unscripted recordings—form the linguistic backbone of the method. The accompanying companion website-included with the book-offers audio and fully integrated exercises to use alongside the text.

Students examine, compare, and contrast this wide variety of authentic discourse to discover both individual and shared language use and cultural perspectives. Additionally, students systematically and progressively acquire the fundamental sounds and rhythmic patterns of spoken French, which leads them to develop solid pronunciation and conversational fluency as well as notable listening comprehension skills. By the end of one academic year, students with no prior French instruction can expect to achieve Intermediate-Mid to Intermediate-High proficiency on the ACTFL scale.
Claude Grangier, Nadine O'Connor Di Vito, and Marie Berg

C'est ce qu'on dit with Website is a second-year (intermediate-level) companion textbook to the beginning-level textbook Comme on dit, and as such follows the same basic format and principles: students work with hundreds of samples of authentic, nonscripted spoken and written French and are led in a step-by-step manner from rule discovery to the acquisition of speaking, reading, writing, and listening competence. The homework activities and inductive presentation of grammar guarantee a completely student-centered approach, as student input is required in each and every exercise. Given the more advanced focus of C'est ce qu'on dit, exercises lead students to expand their competence not just with conversational registers but with formal written and spoken registers, as well. The accompanying companion website-included with the book-offers audio and fully integrated exercises to use alongside the text.

Programs that take advantage of the full range of speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, and cultural expansion activities in C'est ce qu'on dit will find it to be a robust standalone program; however, in the event that programs prefer to include an outside content component, suggestions are offered in the preface and throughout each unit for ways to free up classroom time. By the end of C'est ce qu'on dit, an average student can be expected to have attained the competency objectives described as Advanced-Low on the ACTFL proficiency scale and as a B1 level on the Common European Framework scale (CEFR).


A Practical Guide

Diana M. Ruggiero

Teaching World Languages for Specific Purposes provides practical strategies, models, and resources for developing WLSP curricula through a learner-centered approach grounded in empathy and compassion. Author Diana M. Ruggiero begins with an overview of the scholarship and purpose of WLSP, providing a firm foundation for teachers. She then guides teachers through each key step of WLSP pedagogy, from course development to formative assessment of students. Along the way, Ruggiero addresses important topics such as language interpretation, culture, the needs of heritage learners, and the role of community service learning (CSL) in WLSP. Included in the conversation are new considerations for WLSP and CSL in the wake of COVID-19. Resources for further curriculum development, models for assignments and assessments, sample lesson plans and lesson planning materials, and much more are available in the appendixes, making this a rich resource for all world languages educators.
