More learner friendly than ever, the new ninth edition features an all-new design while maintaining hallmark strengths like logical progression and clear organization, which have successfully served more than half a million CONTACTS users. The program reflects the realities of the contemporary French and Francophone worlds while effectively preparing readers for work, study, and travel abroad with its practical illustrations and activities.

The corresponding Student Activity Manual incorporates additional texts related to the textbook and supplemental reading activities. All readings have been recorded to further develop listening skills.
