Deux mondes, third edition is widely regarded as the most communicative text available for beginning French courses. Based on the Natural Approach, developed by Tracy Terrell and Stephen Krashen, Deux mondes, third edition offers a way of teaching beginning language students that helps them develop proficiency, especially in listening and speaking, and allows students to participate in real discussion at a very early stage. The Natural Approach in general, and Deux mondes, third edition in particular, present material inductively (so that the activities drive the grammar) and in the context of culturally rich themes and topics. Overall, the third edition of Deux mondes offers users a streamlined presentation, with less material on each page, somewhat less vocabulary per chapter, and shorter and clearer grammar explanations. Changes to the new edition include all new readings and culture notes, two new chapter themes, marginal annotations for the grammar sections, a clearer, more attractive design, and video integrated with the Cahier.
