More than any other Beginning French program, Vis--vis captures students attention and engages them as they build a solid foundation of language and culture. The fifth edition of Vis--vis achieves this through its unique blending of contemporary culture and digital tools (video and music) with the building blocks of the four-skills approach. The known, proven qualities of Vis--vis are plentiful. Its easy-to-navigate chapter structure, clear grammar explanations, abundance of practice activities, and diverse coverage of the Francophone world are the foundation for student success. While the innovative features of Vis--vis engage your students and connect them personally to the content. This connection is achieved through an expanded emphasis on music, contemporary language, pronunciation, and the culture of the Francophone world.
