Summer Reading List: French Lessons

The UC Berkeley Summer Reading List is an annual compilation of recommended (though not required) readings suggested by Cal faculty, staff, and students as a welcome to incoming freshmen and transfer students.

This week we take a closer look at French Lessons by  Alice Kaplan, Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1993.

“My reading and composition students have loved Kaplan’s book almost universally. It works very well especially for ELL students: it’s highly readable and it speaks a lot about the language learning experience.”
