Comment va la vie? Découverte de la France au fil des générations - Daniel Mathey / Jean-Marie Friza
The best way to understand the society of a country is undoubtedly to discover it through slices of life: children on the way to school, the first love of a teenager, the stress of a first job, a redundancy, the birth of a child or the death of a loved one.
This book aimed at students preparing for the DELF B1 and B2 is organised in a chronological and generational way, making it possible to understand the everyday life of the French through the key stages of existence: birth, childhood, adolescence, becoming an adult, adulthood, retirement, and old age. Each of these seven chapters offers numerous documents, interviews, texts, articles, photos and infographics that paint a varied and entertaining portrait of French generations through their joys and challenges.
In addition, "Zoom" pages allow a more indepth look at themes such as family, health, money, etc. that are currently subjects of debate in French society. All the documents in the book are accompanied by written and oral activities with answers and there are practice exercises for the DELF exams at the end of each chapter.
