En bonne forme, Eighth Edition, is a complete intermediate program designed for students who have completed an introductory course at the university level or two to three years of French at the high school level. In addition, it will serve as a useful reference text for those who wish to review their skills and strengthen their previous French study.

Based on the conviction that a solid knowledge of French grammar is essential, En bonne forme introduces each grammar topic by way of one or more excerpts of French or francophone literature. These reading selections (Lectures), at the beginning of each chapter, illustrate the grammar topic.

The core of the chapter is the grammar section (Grammaire). It consists of a thorough explanation of each grammar topic with reinforcement exercises after each major step. Supplements de grammaire consist of a selection of idiomatic expressions that appear in the Lecture or are related to the grammar topic. Each item is followed by reinforcement exercises. The fourth major feature, the Synthese section, contains contextualized activities, communicative activities in pairs and groups and topics for written composition. En bonne forme provides ample opportunity to improve all four skills-reading, writing, listening, and especially speaking.
