After the highly successful launch of the first edition of this popular, college-level intermediate French program, the Second Edition of Réseau: Communication, Intégration, Intersections expands upon the features that have made it so popular around the world.  Réseau conceives of the teaching of French as a holistic endeavor, not only in terms of language skills—speaking, listening, reading, and writing—but also in terms of cultural knowledge in the broadest sense. Based on the belief that knowledge of a second language and culture necessarily brings about a greater understanding not only of the world in an increasingly global context, but also of the individual self, the content and activities in Réseau offer students the opportunity to reflect on the differences between their own and French and Francophone cultures and experiment with the new identities that so many researchers suggest language learning can encourage.
