About the Authors
  • This textbook provides a comprehensive and structured vocabulary for all levels of undergraduate French courses. It offers a broad coverage of the concrete and abstract vocabulary relating to the physical, cultural, social, commercial and political environment, as well as exposure to commonly encountered technical terminology. The book is divided into twenty thematic sections for easy integration into modular courses. Within each section, words and phrases have been grouped into units and broadly "graded" according to likely usefulness and difficulty. There are 750 accompanying exercises for private study and classroom use.

    • Can be used throughout an undergraduate degree course, including modular programmes
    • Provides a practical topic-based vocabulary, graded according to usefulness and difficulty, to promote a sound basis for communication in a wide range of circumstances
    • Exercises for private study and classroom use consolidate work done on word lists
