Since it was first published, French in Action: A Beginning Course in Language and Culture -- The Capretz Method has been widely recognized in the field as a model for video-based foreign-language instructional materials. This groundbreaking, critically acclaimed approach to French language learning effectively combines video, audio, and text to help students use real, unsimplified French in the dynamic context of actual communication. Designed to be used in conjunction with the celebrated PBS video series (available from the Annenberg/CPB Project), the print and audio materials, which form the complete program, include textbooks, an instructor's guide, workbooks, an extensive audio program, study guides, and a testing program. This second edition textbook is now available in two separate volumes -- parts 1 and 2 -- each covering 26 lessons of instruction. Major funding for French in Action was provided by the Annenberg/CPB Project. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
