This edition consists of three volumes - a review grammar, a cultural reader and a literary reader - that are co-ordinated by theme and by language, chapter by chapter, across all three books. The organization means that the topics, the language and the structures covered in, for example, Chapter Three of the review grammar are the same as those covered in Chapter Three of either the cultural or literary reader. This format allows instructors to use any of the texts by themselves or in conjunction with one another. The practice material in the "Collage" programme progresses systematically within each grammar point. Students first complete very focused and controlled exercises to establish their understanding of a grammar structure, then they proceed to open, communicative activities where they can practise using the structure in a more conversational context. In order to give intermediate students maximum exposure to French language, all of the "Collage" programme, with the exception of the vocabulary lists, is completely in French. All of the readings in the "Varietes Culturelles" are from such authentic sources as magazines and newspapers. They present topics under discussion in France and the francophone world. A new section called "Mise en Route" precedes each reading and prepares students by providing them with tips and hints for reading more successfully.
