I used this book in my advanced French class. It is excellent. Each chapter is arranged into three sections: the first is French history, the second is French literature and culture, and the third is French grammar. It is very well-written with few mistakes. It's completely in French, but has side notes for commonly misunderstood expressions and words. It also has a glossary in the back. This book is great!
I used this text over ten years ago and liked it very much, then. Consequently, when I decided that my class could use a very good extra reader, I looked for this textbook. I was thrilled to purchase classroom copies of the older version---the one that I had used before---at a very reasonable price. (I did not want students to spend more money to purchase another book and I wanted to save some, but not all, time finding extra things worth reading.) This text explains the geography of France, the development of the language, the history of France, its art, architecture and music in the target language that are simple but interestingly written. The text also includes poetry and small excerpts from famous literary pieces. After the readings, there are comprehension questions and relevant vocabulary and grammar review exercises. It has been updated for more current history, but I find that this serves my purpose. At least once a week, the students take turns reading aloud,...
The book arrived on time in a wonderful condition. It has tons of excellent information about French Literature, History and Grammar. It is a real treasure as its title suggests.
