Ouvertures POD/NR


International Edition
About the Book
Ouvertures is a comprehensive intermediate French program that uses culture as the organizing principle to its communicative approach in the teaching of speaking, reading, listening, and writing. Language is used as a tool to explore the cultures of the Francophone world and their products and perspectives are fully integrated throughout the text and ancillaries. In addition, communication is fostered through the presentation of vocabulary in context, functional language, and opportunities for personalization and role play. Readings, writing assignments, video segments, and online activities provide students with numerous opportunities for making connections among discipline areas.
