These days most textbooks developed for the teaching of French as a foreign language aim to increase learner's awareness of the cultural diversity of French-speaking regions, primarily through pages devoted to aspects of the culture of the countries concerned. However, and as noted by Falkert (2016a), such approaches do not always promote awareness to a specific lexicon nor invite the student to listen to and understand regional French accents. The CECR includes awareness to variation at level B2 but some researchers (Falkert, 2016b; Auzeau, 2016) claim that approaches incorporating such variation should be included at lower levels of mastery of the target language. We will question the relevance of a specific approach targeting students at A2-B1 level through the use of authentic documents from Quebec and francophone African countries.
