Cinema for French Conversation - Le cinema en cours de français - This best-selling French textbook, by author Anne-Christine Rice, continues to define language learning through film in this 4th edition. This is the student book (teacher's guide sold separately). New to the fourth edition:
- Four new award-winning films
- Revised selection of readings
- Handy textboxes providing clarifications, examples, and how to avoid common mistakes
- Screen shots of characters in Premiere Approche
- Companion website offering links to film trailers, interviews, and other online resources

This new text provides a springboard to discussion in French of 18 French language films. Useful for a course in French cinema, or a rich foundation for a course in conversation, Rice's Cinema for French Conversation is a text certain to appeal to students who need to gain skills and vocabulary over a wide range of French historical and cultural topics. Background information, including specialized vocabulary is presented for each film. Topics of discussion are developed which lead the student not only to understand each film, but to appreciate aspects of French culture and context.

Each chapter of the book is devoted to a single movie and includes aids for students watching the film, discussing and writing about the film, and understanding the film in a broader cultural context. Each chapter contains vocabulary helpful to understanding and discussing the film, structured exercises in understanding the film once it has been viewed?especially for discussion in class?and, new to the second edition, an accompanying reading for each film designed to provide perspective on the film itself.
