Facon De Parler 1 Activity Book: French for Beginners

By Angela Aries, Dominique Debney
Authors:
Angela Aries, Dominique Debney
This Activity Book complements the tasks in Façon de Parler 1 fourth edition Student Book. Each unit closely mirrors that of the coursebook with exercises following each section chronologically, so that students who have only worked through part of a unit can concentrate on consolidating their knowledge of relevant items. A variety of exercises, including puzzles and quizzes as well as more conventional activities, has been specially devised to practise the material in the coursebook, both in class and for homework purposes. As with the Student Book, earlier tasks are more gently paced while the later exercises in the Activity Book have been developed to be more challenging and will be suitable for extended practice or to stretch fast learners. In addition, 'Coin info' sections are included to provide extra cultural information. Units include an FAQ (Foire Aux Questions) which offers a general revision of grammar and vocabulary covered in the unit, and end with a Faites le bilan! summary in French. Façon de Parler 1 Activity Book is a valuable addition to this best-selling course, constituting an essential source of practice and ideas for both learners and teachers alike.

Farsighted

By Steven Johnson
Authors:
Steven Johnson
Plenty of books offer useful advice on how to get better at making quick-thinking, intuitive choices. But what about more consequential decisions, the ones that affect our lives for years, or centuries, to come? Our most powerful stories revolve around these kinds of decisions: where to live, whom to marry, what to believe, whether to start a company, how to end a war.Full of the beautifully crafted storytelling and novel insights that Steven Johnson's fans know to expect, Farsighted draws lessons from cognitive science, social psychology, military strategy, environmental planning, and great works of literature. Everyone thinks we are living in an age of short attention spans, but we've actually learned a lot about making long-term decisions over the past few decades. Johnson makes a compelling case for a smarter and more deliberative decision-making approach. He argues that we choose better when we break out of the myopia of single-scale thinking and develop methods for considering all the factors involved.There's no one-size-fits-all model for the important decisions that can alter the course of a life, an organization, or a civilization. But Farsighted explains how we can approach these choices more effectively, and how we can appreciate the subtle intelligence of choices that shaped our broader social history.
