Personnages is an intermediate French text that features a learner-centered, four-skills approach with a strong emphasis on oral communication. Students are exposed to the language and culture of the French-speaking world through features that present characters interacting in different Francophone settings. A revised full-color design makes the text organization easier to follow, enhances its visual appeal, and dramatizes its cultural material. The scope and sequence have been revised to make the amount of grammar presented in each chapter more manageable for students to learn. Culture is an integral part of what students learn and practice while using the text, which examines Francophone culture by highlighting 10 different French-speaking areas around the world.
