During this class, we will deepen our linguistic and cultural awareness of the French-speaking business world. We will study and practice both written and spoken commercial French within their true cultural context. Themes covered during the semester will include banking, advertising, product marketing, claims and disputes, company organization and hierarchy. The mechanics of job application in French will be covered in detail, as will possible scenarios encountered once accepted into a company. Required writing assignments will concentrate on commercial correspondence, stressing the traditional nature of written business French. Oral work will include the practice of communication and integration in both formal and social business settings.

A series of business culture videos will be viewed and used as a springboard for discussion regarding the differences (both perceived and real) between business interactions in the francophone world and the U.S.

A portion of the class will be spent working directly with French peer business students at The Euromediterrané Business School in Marseille, France. Weekly contact will take place virtually via iChat videoconference. Students will collaborate on assigned projects.
