    Amy L. Hubbell

    À la recherche d'un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context (Edition 1.1)

    À la recherche d’un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context is designed to develop students' vocabulary and cultural knowledge in preparation for working in an international environment. Exceeding the need to learn business structures and practices, most students need business communication skills, including advanced cultural competency. To meet these needs, À la recherche d’un emploi uses authentic materials from Québec and France. Communicative exercises are reality based and task oriented, encouraging a student-centered classroom. The numerous activities in the text elicit natural language use, facilitate vocabulary acquisition, and provide students ample opportunities to create relevant and personalized documents in French. In addition to completing viewing activities from feature-length films and online resources, students examine their personal goals and assess their strengths and weaknesses as they develop a job portfolio. À la recherche d’un emploi promotes learning valuable crossover skills that develop students' French-language aptitude, while also preparing them for the job market in their own country. Edition 1.1 includes a number of corrections as well as updates reflecting changes in French business culture.
