This major new edition provides new up-to-date vocabulary and extensive in-text cultural notes on many aspects of the French-speaking world, from political and educational systems, to festivals, important historical facts, famous places, and national newspapers. The edition also boasts a revised correspondence section that provides 75 model letters, with information on business correspondence via email and the internet. A new text design makes every entry easy to navigate, so that you can find the information you require quickly and effortlessly, and in-text boxes throughout provide extended treatment of complex function words.
