Format: Paperback
The book _Teaching French Culture_ is an excellent book for those in the teaching profession (primarily in the French language)or even those who are interested in gaining insight into the rich French culture.
As a student studying to become a high school French teacher, Steele and Suozzo have introduced the French culture as well as contemporary methods of teaching a complex culture while holding students' interest. The activities and methods described are designed for all levels of education, from those that are just beginning a foreign language course (elementary school/high school) to those who are nearly fluent in French (college, etc.), but need an understanding of the culture.
I don't think that this book needs to be restricted to only French teachers; many of the techniques of teaching a foreign culture can be applied to other countries --just minor changes need to be made by the instructor to make it applicable to their own classes.
Businessmen can use this book as well when teaching employees who will become expatriates in France for an extended period of time. Understanding the culture is important for expatriots -- the more one understands about the country and culture in which one is living, the more successful his business practices will be, and he will be happier with his work as well. This is a wonderful instructional book for teaching the French culture!
