Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The approach is very well thought-out. The book begins with the basics, that students want and need - writing letters, reading comprehension, necessary vocabulary, culture and even cultural differences, such as the differences between France and Quebec. I couldn't ask for a better business French textbook."

"It's very clear and packed with information."
