    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.
    Reviews:
    "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

    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

    A step by step, passage by passage analysis of the complete Republic.

    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

    Title: A Debate on Jewish Emancipation and Christian Theology in Old Berlin
    Series: Hackett Classics
    By (author): David Friedländer, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Wilhelm Abraham Teller Edited by: Richard Crouter
    ISBN10-13: 0872207196 : 9780872207196
    When wealthy Jewish industrialist David Friedländer proposed in 1799 that Berlin's Jews undergo a sham conversion to Christianity in return for full German citizenship, he touched off a political and theological debate that would continue to define the relation between Jewish and German identity for more than a century. In the series of provocative letters collected here, Friedländer, Protestant leader Wilhelm Abraham Teller, and young Christian theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher debate Friedländer's radical proposal. In so doing, they grapple with many of the thorny problems--such as citizenship, religious tolerance, and assimilation--that continue to vex world political leaders today. Richard Crouter's Introduction provides the cultural, religious, and historical context for this compelling exchange; a postscript by Julie Klassen reveals the ways in which Germany's minorities continue to be marginalized more than two hundred years after Friedländer made his passionate appeal for political liberty and human rights.

    "One of the most fascinating and, indeed, seminal debates in the protracted struggle of German Jewry to gain full citizenship and civic equality. As the translators make clear in their learned and generally lucid Introduction, this debate illuminates the enduring difficulty of modern nation states to establish a civic society that is, if not religiously neutral, at least inclusive... It will surely enter the canon of standard works in the study of modern Jewish history..." -- Paul Mendes-Flohr, Hebrew University.
