Voyage Virtuel

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Laura Franklin (Faculty), Feb 15, 2001
Comment: I have used the Voyage Virtuel for years in my community college French classes.
I have linked to it on the French Resources page of my web site. I have also
assigned my students tasks that require its use.

The key feature of the Voyage Virtuel is its clickable map, that draws the
student deeper into the individual towns featured. There are photos taken by the
author that capture geography, culture and cuisine. The supplemental materials
and external links are also very helpful.

The Voyage Virtuel is one of many pages of a much larger site entitled
Civilisation Francaise. Each page covers a topic like Cooking, Economy,
Education, History, just to name a few. Each page provides useful information
followed by questions in different formats to test student knowledge, more than
500 photos depicting everyday French life, audio and video exercises, external
links, related films and a bibliography.

Technical Remarks:

On the Civilisation Francaise home page,the author clearly specifies any
plug-ins necessary for audio and video viewing. The whole site is easy to
navigate and the Voyage Virtuel is no exception.
