In-depth and adaptable, PARLONS AFFAIRES! is the ultimate resource for the Business French course. The program covers traditional business topics, as well as career practices and cultural concepts particular to French businesses. The core lesson within each Module discusses in great detail the latest trends in French business practice and culture. The systematic presentation and analysis of each topic provides a comprehensive overview, while the "Lexique" equips the student with crucial vocabulary, and the subsequent activities reinforce newly acquired terms. The focus on France particularly helps students prepare for the exams sponsored by the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie de Paris, and additional information on Quebec acquaints students with French business practices in North America. The PARLONS AFFAIRES! text serves as a jumping point to the innumerable resources on the World Wide Web. Within the text, multiple links to additional information on the Web augment the material, while the Book Companion Website, considerably expanded for this edition, offers support for professors and for students.

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."
