The easy-to-use Connect platform provides ample opportunity for practicing receptive listening and reading skills, acquiring vocabulary and grammar, and producing open-ended writing and speaking responses (alone or in groups). The rich video program helps to build cultural as well as linguistic competence. These features of Vis-à-vis support the core goals of the Introductory French course—communicative and cultural competence—and lay the groundwork for student success.
