This fully updated intermediate course features 12 thematic chapters, authentic content and a guided approach to grammar and phonetics. Designed for older teenagers and adults, it develops the four main skill areas and pays particular attention to enriching students' vocabulary by presenting them with a range of authentic materials taken almost exclusively from French and Francophone newspapers, literature and websites. The students' books includes DVDs as well as CD MP3s, making this a multimedia course which favours active participation from students. The workbook provides a range of exercises that consolidate language skills. There are also complementary activities in partnership with www.savoirs.rfi.fr.
