French in Action is widely recognized as a model for multimedia foreign-language instruction. Now revised for a new generation of French learners, the third edition includes new, contemporary illustrations and updated cultural and linguistic information for today's students. In use by hundreds of colleges, universities, and high schools, French in Action is a powerful educational resource. Part 2, for which the workbook is now available, guides students through the intermediate level of French language acquisition.
Pierre Capretz (1925–2014) was the creator, project director, and video series host of French in Action and a pioneer in video-based foreign language instruction. He taught French at Yale University from 1956 to 2003 and was director of the Yale Language Laboratory from 1963 to 2000. Barry Lydgate is professor of French at Wellesley College.
