    This workbook was developed in the context of an intermediate French course (intermediate French I) taught each quarter at the University of California San Diego. The course undertakes a thorough review of grammar and develops oral and written language skills by analyzing short stories, comic strips, and movies selected from various French-speaking countries.

    Each unit contains biographical information about the writer under study, oral, and written exercises that integrate grammar and new vocabulary, as well as analytical questions leading to a better understanding of the cultural context of each work.

    Exercises are presented on detachable pages to facilitate instructors’ corrections.

    Unit 1
    Questions about the film version of Roch Carrier: Le chandail de Hockey

    Grammar: present indicative and interrogative forms

    Unit 2
    Théophile Gautier: La Cafetière

    Grammar: past tenses (imparfait, passé composé, plus-que-parfait)

    Unit 3
    Joseph Zobel: Le syllabaire and the film version of La Rue Cases-Nègres

    Grammar: direct and indirect object pronouns

    Unit 4
    Frank Pavloff: Matin Brun

    Unit 5
    Zep: Titeuf
