New Features

Updated cultural readings called À propos… develop such themes as French and Francophone geography, history, and society and present various perspectives on the cultures of the French-speaking world.

Les Francophone sur le vif text readings and related documentary-style video segments feature real French people, not actors, who are of different ages and backgrounds. In the video interviews, they use authentic language to talk about who they are and what they do, in settings and situations that match the chapter themes.

The Pour résumer activities (À vous de parler, À vous de lire, and À vous d'écrire) allows students to synthesize their knowledge and demonstrate their ability to use the chapter vocabulary and grammar communicatively.

Grammar Tutorial videos, taught by an animated instructor, focus on 17 key structure points that students typically struggle with in the Introductory French course. Each tutorial is followed by a brief assessment to check for student learning and understanding.

An interactive ebook, the complete Workbook/Lab Manual, grammar tutorials, and all the audio and video materials.

LearnSmart, the only super-adaptive learning tool on the market, is proven to significantly enhance students’ learning and improve course outcomes. Available within Connect Spanish and as a mobile app, LearnSmart provides students with targeted feedback specific to their individual performance, and additional practice in areas where students need help the most.

Additional interactive activities using drag-and-drop functionality, embedded audio, voice recorders, and videos targeting key vocabulary, grammar, and cultural content for extra practice.

A comprehensive gradebook to view your assignment results.

Voice Board and Blackboard IM, two powerful tools integrated into Connect Spanish, promote communication and collaboration outside the classroom.

Key Features

The 7th edition of Deux mondes continues to offer a truly communicative approach that supports functional proficiency while responding to the changing needs of the language classroom.

Deux mondes emphasizes communication in meaningful contexts in the target language. Throughout the program, students listen to and read comprehensible French and have ample opportunities to use French in autograph, interview, information gap, role-play, writing, and other personalized activities that are theme-based, not grammar-driven.

In addition, the Dans le monde francophone activities in the text, many of which are based on authentic materials, offer communicative practice.

Chapter themes and activities encourage students to link their study of French with their personal lives and other subjects they are studying.

Grammaire et exercices section of each chapter takes grammar instruction out of the chapter progression so students can focus on using the language, not learning grammar rules.
