There are nowadays textbooks to meet the needs of teaching French as a Foreign Language. The textbook is still the main material for most of the teachers. The question is how to choose the one best adapted to the needs of the learners. If a teacher is willing to write such a manual, what criteria will be important in order to adjust to the specificities of his public?
In this article, three teachers, one French and two Taiwanese, will introduce their work based on several years of experience in teaching French. 《De vous à nous》 covers 120 hours of teaching (one semester) and is oriented toward beginners whose major is studying French as a foreign language. The book is composed of five units, each divided into four parts: Understanding (vocabulary-expressions and grammar), oral and writing practice, phonetic and 《regards croisés》, a cross-cultural part.
This book focus on two main pedagogic goals: the mastering of communication skills in one hand and a cross-cultural awareness in the other.
