Deux mondes: a communicative approach

"Deux mondes" is widely regarded as the most communicative text available for beginning French courses. Based on the Natural Approach, developed by Tracy Terrell and Stephen Krashen, "Deux mondes, Fourth Edition" offers beginning language students a way to develop language proficiency, especially in listening and speaking, that allows students to participate in real conversations at a very early stage. The Natural Approach in general, and "Deux mondes, Fourth Edition"" in particular," present material inductively (so that the activities drive the grammar) and in the context of culturally rich themes and topics. This text clearly sets itself apart from the competition: with "Deux mondes," students quickly become excited with their rapid growth in comprehension and vocabulary acquisition, and enjoy speaking in the non-threatening environment made possible by the activity formats.
