Faculty Member Co-Authors Textbook

Associate Professor of Foreign Languages and Literatures Astrid Billat is the co-author of a new textbook, La culture francophone: Le monde à l’écoute, to be published by Hackett Publishing in March.  The new book is an innovative textbook designed for intermediate to advanced French courses that aim to introduce the Francophone world and its cultures in an authentic context. From Africa to the Caribbean, to Quebec, to Europe, it explores selected Francophone histories and geographies through a multitude of fascinating avenues, including: lively overviews of French-speaking countries, regions, or populations; excerpts of classic Francophone texts; discussions of prominent Francophone films, culinary dishes, music, public figures, vignettes of everyday life, and more. An array of engaging exercises offer rich opportunities to build language skills, as students become active participants in both language learning and Francophone culture itself.
