“The strength of this book lies in its focus teaching French the way it is spoken today. . . . Teachers will appreciate the many conversation activities in each chapter. Students will benefit from rubriques that examine culture, history, literature, music, and film. . . . Tu sais quoi?! is rich in resources for a pre-intermediate to intermediate course in French when supplemented with a grammar book, or a strong stand-alone text in a French conversation course.”—Language Magazine
Tu sais quoi?!: Cours de conversation en français by Annabelle Dolidon and Norma López-Burton
Welcome to the companion website for this text. Audio and video material by chapter are available by clicking the menu on the right.
Tu sais quoi?! is a main text for conversational French courses. It can also be used as a supplement to a second- or third-year French grammar-review text. It is a function-based text that helps students practice French for application in real life. It includes current idiomatic expressions and up-to-date cultural information, which are not found in most textbooks. It is primarily intended to prepare students to function linguistically and culturally in French-speaking countries where they could study abroad, visit, or work. Included in the book is a DVD of more video material.
