Tu sais quoi?! is a main text for conversational French courses, and it could also be used as a supplement to a second- or third-year French grammar review text. It is a function-based text that helps students practice French for application in real life. It includes current idiomatic expressions and slang, which are not found in most textbooks. It is primarily intended to prepare students to function linguistically and culturally in French-speaking countries where they will study abroad, visit, or work. The book will be accompanied by a  website with grammar and culture links and audio and video files.

Annabelle Dolidon is assistant professor of French at Portland State University. Norma Lopez-Burton is lecturer at the University of California, Davis.

“The strength of this book lies in its focus teaching French the way it is spoken today. . . . Teachers will appreciate the many conversation activities in each chapter. Students will benefit from rubriques that examine culture, history, literature, music, and film. . . . Tu sais quoi?! is rich in resources for a pre-intermediate to intermediate course in French when supplemented with a grammar book, or a strong stand-alone text in a French conversation course.”—Language Magazine
