Your students are changing. Technology is changing. The idea of the classroom is changing. Now, the way your students learn French is changing as well!In preparation for this edition of Deux mondes, we conducted extensive research, employing a wide array of research tools including surveys, focus groups, and ethnographic studies to identify the key goals and challenges of the Introductory French course. Not surprisingly, communication and cultural competence are top goals of the majority of instructors, while they are simultaneously faced with the challenges of fewer contact hours, budget cuts, and new course formats.Deux mondes, 7th edition, continues to offer a truly communicative approach that supports functional proficiency while responding to these changing needs in new and exciting ways. As a direct result of our research, we created Connect French (, a powerful online learning platform that includes the ebook, the online Cahier d'exercices, an audio/video chat tool, and a brand-new video filmed in Provence.
    Enhanced by these powerful new digital tools, Deux mondes, 7th edition:
    • Engages students in authentic culture that inspires them to communicate with confidence by providing them with the natural contexts they need to develop their language skills
    • Provides tools for flexibility and easy online course administration
    • Achieves consistent results across face-to-face, hybrid, and online course formats

    *Connect French, including but not limited to the workbook/lab manual, the video program, and chat tools, is sold separately and does not come automatically with the purchase of the textbook.
