Overview

Structured for student success and organized for instructional flexibility, QUANT A MOI...: TÉMOIGNAGES DES FRANÇAIS ET DES FRANCOPHONES, 5e is written for intermediate courses that emphasize meaningful in-class communication and in-depth exploration of Francophone cultures. Thoroughly updated, the Fifth Edition offers an easy-to-follow structure that facilitates lesson planning and ease of progression through each chapter. The accompanying MANUEL DE PRÉPARATION offers independent grammar review and practice, allowing class time to be devoted to the culturally rich communicative activities found in the student textbook, MANUEL DE CLASSE. The new edition includes engaging new cultural readings, songs related to one of the topics in each chapter, and the latest teaching and learning technologies.

  • The revised fifth edition of QUANT À MOI… includes several new readings in the "Magazine Culture" sections. The new selections are based on relevance to students and on current cultural developments. New topics include the models of the French and American meal, student housing in Le Havre, work conditions and leisure activities in France, the impact of children's texting on their language skills, and an article on Earth Hour.
  • Each chapter of the new edition features a song that is related to one of the chapter topics. Students listen to the song on YouTube, while the book provides a short biography of the singer or group, a brief analysis of the song, cultural notes, and some thoughtful discussion questions.
  • The new edition has been thoroughly updated; statistics have been updated, new photographs have been added, and a revised interior design facilitates navigation in the two-book learning system. Additionally, subtle modifications have been made to the listening comprehension segments to avoid ambiguity.
  • The fifth edition features the latest learning technologies. The text's new accompanying Premium Website is a one-stop portal to an online suite of digital resources. Students have complimentary access to the complete in-text audio program, auto-graded tutorial quizzes, cultural Web activities, Google Earth coordinates, YouTube playlist featuring the songs from the new music feature, and Web links. Premium password protected content is also conveniently posted to the QUANT À MOI… Web site. These resources include the complete SAM audio program, the complete video program, flashcards, vocabulary and grammar podcasts, and over 30 grammar tutorials.
  • The "Contrôle des connaissances" sections serve as a verification and remediation of previously-learned grammatical structures, facilitating the transition from introductory to intermediate level courses. Three "Fonctions" build on these introductory level grammar concepts. Optional, more advanced, grammatical topics are included in the "Fiches Grammaire" Appendix. Topics include inversions, the expression "ne + que," negative expressions, "future antérieur," relative pronouns "ce qui," "ce que," "ce dont" adjectives that change meaning, past participle agreements, and more.
  • The program's unique structure maximizes student learning and understanding of Francophone cultures. Students use the MANUEL DE PRÉPARATION outside of class to refine grammatical competence, develop writing skills, and work on reading and listening comprehension, thus allowing class time to be devoted to meaningful communicative activities.
  • The program is built around "témoignages," interviews with French and Francophone speakers of various ages and backgrounds, who were interviewed specifically for QUANT À MOI on all the chapter themes. Excellent models for speaking and writing, the "témoins" offer an authentic way to introduce cultural topics and vocabulary while emphasizing the development of listening comprehension skills.
  • Pedagogically, the program builds on themes, structures, vocabulary, and skills learned in beginning French courses, while at the same time moving students to a more abstract level of language usage. In doing so, students learn to work with more extended discourse and to deal with the cultural and sociological – as well as practical – aspects of the topics studied.
  • QUANT À MOI prepares students for upper-division work through a process approach to discussion and writing in the context of current issues. In addition, each chapter includes a literary text related to the chapter themes. These texts introduce students to more advanced reading opportunities, facilitating the transition as they progress to more advanced courses.
  • "Magazines Cultures" (three per chapter) expand on various aspects of the chapter theme, providing cultural information and encouraging students to further explore the chapter topics on their own.
