Review quote

Of the Third Edition: "Cinema for French Conversation by Anne-Christine Rice is an outstanding text that is unlikely to be equaled anytime soon. This visually attractive, luxurious, 358-page tome is a language text in its own right since it incorporates a great many language-specific activities.... For right now the standard of excellence is measured by our good friends up in Newburyport, Massachusetts." - Thomas Conner, St. Norbert College, NECTFL Review #62show more
