About

Overview

The seamless articulation of vocabulary, grammar, activities and cultural content is what makes ENTRE AMIS so effective in the classroom! ENTRE AMIS is a performance-oriented program designed to expand students' interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communicative skills by presenting and rehearsing situations similar to those they will encounter in real life. Based on a progressive approach, ENTRE AMIS features thorough coverage of all four-language skills with a strong emphasis on oral communication. The language presented and practiced is always embedded in a French cultural context. The Sixth Edition of ENTRE AMIS has been thoroughly updated and now incorporates the latest technology offerings, including the iLrn Heinle Learning Center.

Features and Benefits

  • Integration of language and culture. Cultural content is interwoven in language practice throughout the textbook. Culture is an integral part of what students learn, helping to develop their strategic competence and sociolinguistic accuracy.
  • Integration of language and culture. Cultural content is interwoven in language practice throughout the textbook. Culture is an integral part of what students learn, helping to develop their strategic competence and sociolinguistic accuracy.
  • Interactive activities that work. While personalization is the goal of all of the interactive activities in ENTRE AMIS, students are never required to use expressions that they have not yet practiced. Grammar and vocabulary are presented in clear contexts before students are required to put them to use.
  • Accessible grammar and vocabulary. Each chapter introduces structures and expressions related to the targeted functions. The grammar syllabus and vocabulary load are then expanded and reinforced through recycling in subsequent chapters.
  • Manageable Scope and Sequence. Streamlined grammar sequence offers early introduction of the verb aller, a clear explanation of the comparative and superlative, and an accessible presentation of the subjunctive.
