About this book


This realistic, structured and practical course on the comprehension and production of English and French business letters is designed for assignment-based programmes. It is intended for use with the Multilingual Business Handbook which provides over 1800 of the building blocks from which much commercial correspondence is composed. Each section is a linked realistic exchange of letters based on a specific scenario, giving practice in translation to and from French and freer expression within a given framework. The letters are graded in terms of linguistic and situational difficulty; students at the two main levels - intermediate and advanced - are provided with a fully graded course.
