Business French

The development of French for Francophones

This course is intended for French speakers (whose mother tongue is French or who have a very good knowledge of French) who have completed high school and who have difficulties in written French.

Based on the booklets Learning the grammar of written French written by Claire Asselin and Anne McLaughin, this course served as a catch-up for tens of thousands of college and university students. This material contains content that meets real needs, not a reproduction of the table of contents of traditional grammars, let alone a list of the most devious snares of the French language.

Learning the grammar of written French

  • A learning method already used by 40,000 people, self-taught or enrolled in a college or university course;
  • Selected content following an analysis of the most frequent errors, presented in an order that ensures progressive learning;
  • An educational approach based on the inductive process, allowing one to build one’s own knowledge;
  • Powerful analytical tools;
  • Numerous exercises, a corrected with explanations, a self-assessment test at the end of each chapter;
  • Summaries, warnings against common mistakes, mnemonic devices, historical notes, remarks intended for “buffs” of grammar.
