9780618230471: Tâches d’encre: French Composition

Using a process-writing approach, this third-year composition text helps students master writing skills and gain confidence as writers. The text is set up in a workbook format and is written entirely in French, except for the first chapter. Students broaden their repertoire of related speech acts, vocabulary, grammatical structures, and stylistic elements through three major sections. Each chapter features a model text--a literary piece, journalistic selection, or informal writing--that represents the Francophone world.
