Though a bit dated in its appearance/format, the French Civilization section here is excellent. It challenges the learner to aspire to a higher level of culture, and it's interactive answers (on some of the questions) allow the learner to guess before checking his answer.

Technical Remarks:

Still an excellent resource though technically HTML has come a long way since it was created.

I like the conviviality of this site. The thematic organization makes it fast. I like the situations " de la vie courante", The design could be more attractive but la "table des matières" and the themes in the first page is great. No wasted time... It goes to the essential.

This site is very easy to use. I like the fact that it is organized by themes. Also, the listening activities are incorporated into real life situation. It is great to use as multimedia activities where the students act on their own.

This is one of the best sites to explore French culture while interacting with
the system. I like how you can learn by reading and filling out spaces as well
as having audio available.

I spent about 30 minutes browsing the various links and trying out some of the
exercises. As I clicked on some of the additional links I found that i had
visited some of them previously this semester. It appears that visitors to the
site can experience French culture throught the pictures and have a good idea of
how to couduct themselves if they ever go abroad.

Technical Remarks:

The site was easy to navigate and none of the information was redundant. I would
recommend it to anyone contemplating a trip to France.

Technical Remarks:

The pictures included in this site are beautiful and load perfectly with a high
speed connection. I'm not sure how they would load with dial-up but their
detail really give you an accurate look at the architecture in France.

What a wonderful site and that is so detailed on everyday living. There are many
categories with a plethora of information. The pictures enhance the interest to
know more. The blanks in the sentences help to learn the vocabulary, as well
as, sentence structure. I especially like the law, health, and economy
categories, which are not standard on websites when learning the language.

I have used this excellent site for years in my community college French
classes from second semester on up. The modular approach lends itself to any
French program, as the topics are relevant to all the general areas of French
civilization. The modules make excellent use of graphics, audio and video, fully
manipulating the technology and using it for what it does best.There are very
good activities for students and the possibility of addressing all
skills-listening, speaking, reading, writing and culture.

Technical Remarks:

All technical requirements are clearly noted on the home page. Easy to navigate,
consistent design.
