Abstract

Taking up the May 2013 special issue theme concerning the future of French Programs in the United States, their “orientation” and “survival,” the author sets out to maintain a positive tone and productive perspective on this polemic via a working case study of her home institution’s “French Language and Cultures for Professions” program. The author first reviews existing scholarship concerning the teaching and learning of “Business French” and then presents a course “blueprint” for a twenty-first century update to this traditional curricular and programmatic model, re-titled “French for Business and Professions.”
