French Expressions and Practices for the Business World!

Business French, like business English, is a somewhat specialized idiom with many expressions that are not normally used in everyday conversation. French for Business can benefit advanced learners as well as those just starting to study French. One semester of college French, or the equivalent, is all you need to get started.

French for Business is designed to help you acquire language patterns and to practice manipulating phrases in a natural way, by ear. By hearing and imitating the recorded voices of native speakers, you'll learn quickly and develop more accurate pronunciation. The grammar review at the end of the course provides a brief refresher covering major grammatical forms including verb conjugation, irregular verbs, tenses, and questions.
