Reviews

'Thinking French Translation is one of the most exciting courses produced for second and third-year undergraduates.' - Modern Languages Journal

'A close comparison of this edition with the original shows how much work has gone into refining explanations, updating some of the practical exercises, and improving page lay-out. The result is an excellent tool for student and teacher, based on solid theoretical principles, yet transparent and eminently practical.'
