Ideal for the adult learner considering a holiday in France, who has either learnt no French before or is conscious of having learnt 'the wrong kind'. The content of the French for Starters Paperback is based on what a traveller would need to say when on holiday in France in predictable, and some amusingly unpredictable, situations. The first part deals with 'What you will need to say' and covers simple grammar points as they arise. The second part lets the learner loose on what he or she has learned in the first part, in a variety of practical situations. The accompanying cassettes provide lively examples and give short, memorable bursts of practice. A particularly attractive feature of the book are the cartoons by Celia Weber.

"With a title derived literally from the explorations of the French in the Pacific and metaphorically from classroom encounters with another culture - both of which form important subsections to the volume - Explorations and Encounters in French actively seeks to unite those fields of enquiry sometimes seen as separate, namely, culture and language. The essays selected for inclusion in Explorations and Encounters in French bring together many of the current research strands in French Studies today, tapping into current pedagogical trends, analysing contemporary events in France, examining the Franco-Australian past, while reviewing teaching practice and the culture of teaching. Collectively, the essays reflect the common engagement with language, culture and society that characterizes the community of French teachers and scholars in Australia and abroad."--University of Adelaide Press webpage.

The Phraseology of Administrative French

The French administrative language of the European Union is an emerging discourse: it is only fifty years old, and has its origins in the French administrative register of the middle of the twentieth century, but it is also a unique contact situation in which translation has always played a pivotal role. Using the methodology of corpus linguistics, and a specially compiled corpus of texts, covering a range of genres, this book describes the current discourse of EU French from the perspective of phraseology and collocational patterning, and in particular in comparison with its French national counterpart. Corpus methodology and an inclusive notion of phraseology, embracing typical formulae, locutions, and patterning around keywords, reveal subtleties and patterns which otherwise remain hidden, and point to a discourse of EU French whose novel context of production has led it to be phraseologically conservative, compared with the administrative French of France.

In this update of his classic book, Craig Storti takes readers through 74 brief dialogues between an American and a person from another culture. Short as these dialougues are, they have buried within them at least one cultural breach which the reader is challenged to figure out. In the course of these conversations, readers come face to face with the fact that many of their most cherished instincts don't travel very well, and what is expected and understood in one culture may be shocking and incomprehensible in another - leading inevitably to all manner of misunderstandings, and these misunderstandings, in turn, often result in a wide variety of unpleasant emotional and practical consequences, from hurt feelings and missed opportunities to failed negotiations and lost profits, to anger and hostility. But, if we could stop assuming that other people are like us-if we could begin to believe that we don't necessarily understand our cultural counterparts in social or business settings, we would be well on our way to avoiding cultural misunderstandings and the problems they give rise to. That, in a nutshell, is the purpose of this book: to alert readers to the misunderstandings lurking in the most common interactions we have with people from other cultures-and help us take the first and most important step down the road to cultural sensitivity.
