Product Description 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 Competence by Competence, through their first year of elementary French. Review "Horizons is the most engaging and well-conceived introductory textbook currently on the market." "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." "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." "The book is engaging, attractive, and, most importantly . . . well planned out and expertly structured so that students get the most of their book." "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."
