An integral tool to help students master the course material, this essential component follows the organization of the main text and provides additional out-of-class practice. The "Activites ecrites" in the Workbook give students the opportunity to apply and practice material presented in the textbook, including vocabulary, structures, and cultural information. "Perspectives culturelles" sections provide more practice with the cultural notions and "Voix en direct" speakers. With its "Activites de comprehension et de prononciation", the Lab Manual includes listening comprehension activities and instruction in pronunciation. The SAM is also available electronically in the iLrnâ„¢: Heinle Learning Center. Instant access can be purchased via http://www.CengageBrain.com.
