About

Overview

HORIZONS is a complete elementary French program that makes learning French easier through its step-by-step skill-building methodology, flexible and accessible approach to grammar and new vocabulary, and creative and sophisticated coverage of Francophone culture. Through varied interactive activities and clear grammar explanations, the text helps students communicate effectively in French while culturally connecting them to the Francophone world. HORIZONS features a clear, easy-to-follow structure that is ideal for instructors with any level of teaching experience. HORIZONS carefully guides students Compétence by Compétence, through their first year of elementary French.

Features and Benefits

  • HORIZONS is user-friendly for instructors of all backgrounds and includes annotations to indicate lesson plans, suggest additional activities, and provide further cultural and linguistic information. Visual support for new vocabulary and structures, concise and clear grammar explanations, and self-checks and grammar reviews also make learning easier for students.
  • HORIZONS has a clear, easy-to-follow structure, with each chapter organized by four color-coded “Compétence” sections based on a specific language function. This organization facilitates effective instruction and enhances student learning.
  • HORIZONS strongly emphasizes the importance of effective learning strategies with expanded reading and listening strategies and reading and writing strategies included throughout the text. Reading and writing activities include an appealing mix of literary readings and magazine-style articles.
  • Grammar review sections called “Résumé de grammaire” are located at the end of each chapter to reinforce the student-friendly organization by summarizing new grammar from the chapter on a two-page spread to make for easy student review.
  • The “Lecture et Composition” section in each chapter helps students become better writers through a range of process-based writing tasks, including taking notes, exchanging compositions with classmates, and producing short pieces of written work.
  • A broad array of culture-based activities, notes, and readings set in a different part of the French-speaking world brings culture to life for students. Chapter-ending “Comparaisons culturelles” encourage students to make cross-cultural connections, while “Notes culturelles” annotations provide unique and valuable sociolinguistic insights.
  • “Interlude Musical” sections integrated into the text use French songs and accompanying activities to aid comprehension, engage student interest, and bring the sounds and structures of French alive. Songs are available for purchase at the ever-popular and student-friendly iTunes Store or can be found on YouTube.
  • A video, “Les Stagiaires,” created specifically for HORIZONS, integrates the vocabulary and grammar from each chapter into a storyline of two new interns working at an office. Their daily interactions and adventures with their co-workers depict real-life uses of French in a variety of situations, allowing students to practice listening skills with the vocabulary and structures they have studied up to that point. Brief episodes appearing in the Vidéoreprise section of each chapter are accompanied by pre- and post-viewing activities, as well as grammar- and vocabulary-based activities.

Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"Horizons is the most engaging and well-conceived introductory textbook currently on the market."

— Mark Andrew Hall, Ithaca College

"I love how the activities seem like natural opportunities to communicate, rather than pedagogical exercises, and how all the skills-reading, writing, listening and speaking-are addressed in a strong cultural context."

— Joseph Price, Texas Tech University

"At SUNY New Paltz, we love HORIZONS' approach. It is effective, and we have seen more students continue studying French after completing their language requirements. Adding a web-based activity on current subjects will enhance the learning and appeal to students and instructors."

— Mercedes Rooney, State University of New York at New Paltz

"The book is engaging, attractive, and, most importantly . . . well planned out and expertly structured so that students get the most of their book."

— John Moran, New York University

"Grammar explanations are clear, accessible, and complete . . . The additional tutorials on iLrn™ and tools in the eBook complement these well for students who don't seem to get enough from reading the explanations."

— Nina Furry, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"An intelligently structured introductory textbook with excellent support. A good choice for a diverse student-body."

— Kelle Truby, University of California, Riverside

DVD  (ISBN-10: 1285451600 | ISBN-13: 9781285451602)

The video, “Les Stagiaires,” provides a glimpse into the happenings at the small technology firm Technovert. Rachid Bennani and Amélie Prévot have just begun their internships at the company, and their arrival shakes up the everyday habits of the company’s staff. When Amélie catches the eye of another young employee, will she return his affections? Will the romantic interest turn the office into a hotbed of gossip? Video activities are integrated into the “Reprise” section of the textbook. These exercises will prepare the student to follow the action in “Les Stagiaires,” which is closely tied to each chapter theme and the scope and sequence of the book.
