OverviewStudents learn best when they are connecting with the language as used in real-world settings, with each other as a community and with authentic culture. En avant! sparks the curiosity that builds these connections as students advance toward communicative and cultural competence in the introductory classroom. The En avant! program is built around the following distinctive principles: A focused approach with systematic review and recycling; Active learning; ;Integration of culture. Now in its third edition, En avant! includes many targeted changes prompted by reviewer feedback to more readily engage students with the grammatical and cultural content while making that content even more user-friendly and logical. Emphasis is placed on creating and integrating new features, based on the ACTFL World Readiness Standards, in order to better engage and inspire a new, digitally minded generation of French learners.
