Business French is a task-based program that emphasizes oral comprehension and cross-cultural aspects of business relationships. Designed to prepare students for jobs in a French-speaking environment, the text trains students for the Certificat du franÇais professional examination and focuses on travel and the business world. Carefully selected chapter themes prepare students with sufficient mastery of the language so that they can engage in business transactions in French-speaking settings. Program of varied tasks includes specific activities that address communicative and linguistic goals; realistic tasks that feature authentic activities; and stimulating tasks, such as critical thinking, resolving problems, and making decisions, that emphasize meaning and encourage lively class discussions. Paced grammar presentation introduces grammar points as needed within the chapter for carrying out the task at hand. An end-of-text grammar section contains explanations of rules as well as practical exercises. Recycling of vocabulary occurs in the glossary through phrases that feature each lesson's new terms. Integrated cultural coverage poses an intercultural question, L'interculturel, on the last page of each chapter, focusing on the cross-cultural aspects of business relationships.Jean-Luc Penfornis is the author of 'Business French: An Intermediate Course', published 2005 under ISBN 9780618610488 and ISBN 0618610480.
