    Title: à la recherche d'un emploi
    Sub-title: Business French in a Communicative Context
    By (author): Amy Hubbell
    ISBN10-13: 1585108391 : 9781585108398
    À la recherche d'un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context is designed to develop students' vocabulary and cultural knowledge in preparation for working in an international environment. Exceeding the need to learn business structures and practices, most students need business communication skills, including advanced cultural competency. To meet these needs, À la recherche d'un emploi uses authentic materials from Québec and France. Communicative exercises are reality based and task oriented, encouraging a student-centered classroom. The numerous activities in the text elicit natural language use, facilitate vocabulary acquisition, and provide students ample opportunities to create relevant and personalized documents in French. In addition to completing viewing activities from feature-length films and online resources, students examine their personal goals and assess their strengths and weaknesses as they develop a job portfolio. À la recherche d'un emploi promotes learning valuable crossover skills that develop students' French-language aptitude, while also preparing them for the job market in their own country. Edition 1.1 includes a number of corrections as well as updates reflecting changes in French business culture.

    "Finally, a textbook for business French that actually prepares students for the real world and today’s tough job market. Amy Hubbell’s À la recherche d’un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context is extremely well designed and planned. The layout of the CV and cover letter activities are clear, clean, and concise and I particularly like the fact that there are comparison activities (i.e., French vs. American vs. Québécois CV) with on-target comprehension questions for reading selections. Students are certain to appreciate the practical nature of this text which is creatively presented in an up-to-date format. Amy Hubbell’s text is a welcome addition to the field." —Eileen M. Angelini, PhD, Professor of French, Fulbright Scholar, Chair of the AATF National Commission on French for Business and Economic Purposes, Department of Modern Languages, Canisius College
    "Quel ouvrage stimulant et rafraîchissant. À la recherche d’un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context, invite littéralement à la découverte du monde des affaires de la francophonie internationale. Cet ouvrage offre à tout étudiant intéressé l’occasion d’acquérir une excellente compréhension et les connaissances essentielles, pour jouer éventuellement un rôle actif dans le milieu francophone des affaires. L’approche que propose le professeur Amy Hubbell, par les thèmes traités, le contenu (vocabulaire, vidéos, exercices), mais surtout ce concept d’apprentissage innovateur (actions \ rétroactions), amènent l’étudiant ou le lecteur au-delà de la théorie, donc littéralement dans la pratique et les enjeux que représentent le milieu des affaires de la francophonie d’aujourd’hui, dans un contexte de globalisation des marchés." —Damien Ferland, Directeur, Centre du savoir sur mesure, Université du Québec à Chicoutimi
    "À la recherche d’un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context definitely fills a tremendous void in the field of business French. With a wealth of information and activities, this textbook provides students and instructors with an engaging and in-depth introduction to the major aspects of using French in a professional context. Of particular interest is the incorporation of la Francophonie and the European Union, two critical topics rarely presented in other business French textbooks. Anyone intending to seek employment in a French-speaking country or region will benefit greatly from the content and guidance that this text provides." —William Thompson, Associate Professor of French and Assistant Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, The University of Memphis
    "A quick perusal of the 'Preface to the Instructor' should suffice to sell instructors on this well-conceived and much-needed textbook for the Business French course that most departments offer. The preface hits all the right notes: business communication skills; advanced cultural competency; reality-based; task-oriented; authentic video content; variety of structured assignments; case study; creation of a marketing campaign as a culminating activity; focus on France, Quebec, and other French-speaking countries. For many, the reassurance that 'the text does not assume the instructor will have special knowledge of business operations or economics' will be further enticement. A closer inspection of this textbook intended for third-year college French students confirms that the book lives up to its hype. The text follows a logical sequence succinctly laid out in a brief introduction to students setting the context for the entire book—namely that they are international students at a French-speaking university seeking a job or future career leveraging their French language and cultural skills. . . . This textbook succeeds on multiple levels, perhaps most importantly by demystifying the job process while imparting valuable knowledge for all job seekers—not just those seeking to learn Business French. The variety and thoroughness of the activities and resources provided will facilitate the instructor's job." —Mary Ellen Scullen, University of Maryland, in the French Review

    Title: A Companion to Familia Romana
    Sub-title: Based on Hans ørberg’s Latine Disco, with Vocabulary and Grammar
    Series: Lingua Latina
    By (author): Jeanne Neumann, Hans H. ørberg
    ISBN10-13: 158510809X : 9781585108091
    This volume is the completely reset Second Edition of Jeanne Marie Neumann's A College Companion (Focus, 2008). It offers a running exposition, in English, of the Latin grammar covered in Hans H. ørberg's Familia Romana , and includes the complete text of the ørberg ancillaries Grammatica Latina and Latin--English Vocabulary . It also serves as a substitute for ørberg's Latine Disco , on which it is based. As it includes no exercises, however, it is not a substitute for the ørberg ancillary Exercitia Latina I . Though designed especially for those approaching Familia Romana at an accelerated pace, this volume will be useful to anyone seeking an explicit layout of Familia Romana 's inductively-presented grammar. In addition to many revisions of the text, the Second Edition also includes new units on cultural context, tied to the narrative content of the chapter.
    Hans Henning ørberg (1920--2010) received his MA in English, French, and Latin from the University of Copenhagen in 1946. He taught at various Danish high schools until 1963 and at the Grenaa Gymnasium until 1988. From 1953 to 1961 he served on the staff of the Nature Method Institute, Copenhagen. He is the author of the Latin course "Lingua Latina secundum naturae rationem explicata" (1955--56); the course was revised in 1990--91, with a number of supplements, under the title "Lingua Latina per se illustrata." His books were published by Domus Latina, a publishing house he founded in Denmark, and are distributed in the English speaking world by Focus Publishing.
    Reviews:
    A synthesis of language teaching research and teaching experience, Jeanne Marie Neumann's A Companion to 'Familia Romana': Second Edition is an extremely valuable ancillary for teachers and students who use the volume Familia Romana: Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata by Hans ørberg. "The Companion cleverly reworks and is presumably intended to replace (at least in English-speaking territories) the original three volumes written by ørberg: Latina Disco , Grammatica Latina and Latin-English Vocabulary I . Following the approach already adopted by ørberg, Neumann recommends undertaking the study of the Companion only after careful reading of the corresponding units in Familia Romana and the Latin Grammar sections therein. On this approach, the deepening of a student's metalinguistic understanding is postponed until (although not in reality subordinated to) the acquisition of morphology, syntax, and vocabulary, since the grammatical explanations function as an additional aid to understanding already simultaneously encountered (and thus partially assimilated) rules in the course of undertaking the Latin readings. Each chapter is accompanied by a major cultural and historical excursus (Studia Romana), absent in the first edition of the Companion and always connected with the content of individual chapters. The presence of a list of words with English translation at the end of each section, absent in the original Latin volume, proves successful and effective because it allows one to determine with certainty not only the primary meaning of a word but also the exact meaning with which it is used in various contexts. "The big innovation in this second edition is the inclusion of expository units on Roman civilization. These sections, always written in a lively and engaging style, significantly enrich the ørberg course, making it better serve the needs of those students of the Latin language who also wish to gain familiarity with Roman culture and civilization. "The new edition of the Companion will certainly help rekindle the debate not only on the direct teaching of the Latin language but also on the need for renewal in the teaching of ancient languages. Indeed, thanks to its structure and rigor, Neumann's work does everything necessary to adapt to present-day needs a text which, although it was conceived over fifty years ago, is still a very solid and valuable tool for starting the reading of classics." -- Giuseppe Marcellino, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
    " Familia Romana and A Companion to Familia Romana came as a complete revelation. I'd heard they were unique, but they are literally nothing less than a work of genius. They would completely revolutionize the classroom, and I would urge all teachers of first-year Latin at universities and all high school teachers to seriously consider adopting this radical approach to learning Latin. The companion volume provides all the traditional exposure you would want, but the main volume shows every prospect of genuinely internalizing Latin in the learner's brain as a living language, calling on a whole set of language-acquisition skills and instincts normally neglected in the teaching of a dead language. Mind-blowing." —Jack Mitchell, Department of Classics, Dalhousie University
    "For anyone committed to learning or teaching active Latin, Hans H. ørberg's Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata is a singularly rich approach. But inductive language acquisition in a traditional school setting offers a set of challenges in response to which Jeanne M. Neumann's Lingua Latina: A Companion to Familia Romana has become the sine qua non. The Companion is designed as an aid for those learning Latin at the university levels, independent learners, and instructors at all levels. This Second Edition adds minor changes to the text of the first edition and new, multi-faceted culture sections in each chapter, called Studia Romana. As a bridge between the inductive method and deductive rules and paradigms, this new edition of the Companion has become a singular essential resource. Much more than a meticulously crafted and effective complement to the ørberg method and texts, the Companion offers the most essential element of natural Latin language acquisition: lucid explanations of the unambiguous beauty of Latin's grammar and style." —Cynthia White, University of Arizona, in The Classical Outlook

    Title: A Companion to Roma Aeterna
    Sub-title: Based on Hans ørberg's Instructions, with Vocabulary and Grammar
    Series: Lingua Latina
    By (author): Jeanne Neumann, Hans H. ørberg
    ISBN10-13: 1585108413 : 9781585108411
    A sequel to her widely used A Companion to Familia Romana (now in its second edition), Jeanne Marie Neumann's A Companion to Roma Aeterna offers a running commentary, in English, of the Latin grammar covered in Hans H. ørberg's Roma Aeterna , and includes the complete text of the ørberg ancillaries Grammatica Latina and Latin--English Vocabulary II . It also serves as a substitute for ørberg's Instructions, on which it is based. Though designed especially for those approaching Roma Aeterna at an accelerated pace, this volume will be useful to anyone seeking an explicit exposition of that volume's implicitly presented grammar. In addition to many revisions of the text, A Companion to Roma Aeterna also includes new units on cultural context, tied to the narrative content of the chapter.

    "Jeanne Marie Neumann’s A Companion to Roma Aeterna provides students, instructors, and homeschoolers with a treasure trove of learning that will enable them to fully benefit from Ørberg’s absurdly underused Roma Aeterna." -- James Dobreff, Department of Classics & Religious Studies, UMass Boston
    "In using ørberg's Roma Aeterna students undertake the daunting task of reading Latin containing advanced and complex grammatical concepts without the aid of any English explanations or assistance. Neumann's companion text regularly serves as a welcome relief and periodically as a necessary crutch in the task. Using the two texts in coordination with each other is a highly effective method for learning Latin, maximizing the strengths and minimizing the weaknesses of ørberg's "Natural Method." In the end it all boils down to this: Roma Aeterna will successfully teach students to read Latin, and Companion to Roma Aeterna will help those students understand the complex grammatical and syntactical concepts that underlie the Latin language." —Michael Holstead, in The NECTFL Review

A Note to the Instructor: À la recherche d'un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context is designed to be taught by non-business specialists. Its goal, in addition to preparing students linguistically and culturally for work in a Francophone business environment, is to engage students in the job search process. In doing so, the text causes students to draw on valuable crossover skills from their own culture and their native language. This course will work not just for business majors, but for any student studying French at the intermediate to advanced level, regardless of their major field of study.

    Title: A Midsummer Night's Dream
    Series: New Kittredge Shakespeare
    By (author): William Shakespeare Edited by: John R. Ford, James H. Lake
    ISBN10-13: 1585101656 : 9781585101658
    George Lyman Kittredge's insightful editions of Shakespeare have endured in part because of his eclecticism, his diversity of interests, and his wide-ranging accomplishments, all of which are reflected in the valuable notes in each volume. These new editions have specific emphasis on the performance histories of the plays (on stage and screen). Features of each edition include: - The original introduction to the Kittredge Edition - Editor's Introduction to the Focus Edition. An overview on major themes of the plays, and sections on the play's performance history on stage and screen. - Explanatory Notes. The explanatory notes either expand on Kittredge's superb glosses, or, in the case of plays for which he did not write notes, give the needed explanations for Shakespeare's sometimes demanding language. - Performance notes. These appear separately and immediately below the textual footnotes and include discussions of noteworthy stagings of the plays, issues of interpretation, and film and stage choices. - How to read the play as Performance Section. A discussion of the written play vs. the play as performed and the various ways in which Shakespeare's words allow the reader to envision the work "off the page." - Comprehensive Timeline. Covering major historical events (with brief annotations) as well as relevant details from Shakespeare's life. Some of the Chronologies include time chronologies within the plays. - Topics for Discussion and Further Study Section. Critical Issues: Dealing with the text in a larger context and considerations of character, genre, language, and interpretative problems. Performance Issues: Problems and intricacies of staging the play connected to chief issues discussed in the Focus Editions' Introduction. - Select Bibliography & Filmography Each New Kittredge edition also includes screen grabs from major productions, for comparison and scene study.
    About The Author:
    William Shakespeare (c. 26 April 1564 - 23 April 1616) was an English playwright, renowned by many as the world's greatest writer in the English Language. Among his plays are "Romeo and Juliet", "Hamlet", "Macbeth" to name but a few.
    Reviews:
    "This edition of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' is wonderfully lucid and thoughtful, offering supporting material that will appeal to readers from high school students to scholars. The introduction is especially thoughtful, offering, in addition to expected discussions of love, magic and imagination, an exploration of the theatrical history. The bibliography and filmography are both detailed and helpful, and the questions guide students to consider the play from many viewpoints without ever forcing an interpretation onto them." -- Annalisa Castaldo, Widener University

    Reviews:
    "Gary Garrison's plays are simply the best short plays around. We beg him every year to put something in our Boston Theater Marathon, and every year he outdoes himself with plays that speak to our foibles, our complexities, and always, always our humanity. It's no wonder he has written a how-to book about it-he's the master!" -- Kate Snodgrass, Artistic Director, Boston Theater Marathon/Boston Playwrights' Theatre
    "It is not often that you can find an expert who is able to share their knowledge and guide others as openly and tirelessly as Gary Garrison does during the Southeastern Theatre Conference's annual convention. As the respondent for the Annual Ten-Minute Play Festival, he not only teaches through the production critiques, he can often be found working with a production group long after the formal theatre response. Bravo Gary Garrison!" -- Betsey Baun, Executive Director, Southeastern Theatre Conference
