Savoir-Faire meaning know-how or skill, is a wide-ranging language course for undergraduate learners of French. It focuses on communication skills in areas that graduates will need if they are to use their knowledge of French professionally, focusing particularly on: * report writing * translating and interpreting * making presentations. Savoir-Faire comprises a course book, teacher's book and three 60-minute audio cassettes. Each of the ten chapters deals with a distinct topic and set of skills and is built around the audio recordings and written texts, all taken from authentic sources. Although designed with first-year students in mind, with its emphasis on transferable skills, Savoir-Faire could be successfully adapted for use with second and final-year students.

Savoir Faire is a beautifully designed reference book that includes approximately 1,000 foreign phrases in languages that run the gamut from French to German to Japanese and more.

Commemorating the Rideau Club’s 150th anniversary, this richly illustrated book celebrates the history of Ottawa’s premier private club since its founding in 1865. Co-founded by Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir George-Étienne Cartier, the history of Ottawa’s premier private club — the Rideau Club — is intertwined in so many ways with the development of Canada over the past 150 years. Commissioned for the Club’s sesquicentennial, this work by Canadian historian Christopher McCreery weaves together the story of the club’s evolution since 1865 with vignettes of how certain members made and continue to make it a very special place. Richly illustrated, this bilingual book provides a highly accessible account of the Club’s enduring place in the nation’s capital. From the early days of Ottawa as a rough lumber town to its present status as a centre of technological innovation, the pioneering spirit of the Club’s membership is exemplified by the prominent role its members have played in Canada’s national and international policy making, and in the arts, science, business, and commerce.

Abstract: The label "luxury" evokes vague and often unknown qualities that give a good or service the capacity to command a substantial price premium. Hence, in this article, I argue, firstly, that a core component of luxury is ignorance, or the unknown. To support this argument a systematic examination of the place of ignorance in the promotion and consumption of luxury goods and services is provided. In this way, a typology of ignorance of relevance to luxury is developed. Secondly, I argue that ignorance is deployed by both promoters and consumers in their separate and collaborative engagements with luxury. To illustrate this, ignorance in the promotion of luxury is analyzed through the case of Louis Vuitton's "Savoir-Faire" print advertising campaign. Bringing to light the interactions between luxury and ignorance provides insights into the unknowns that constitute an inherent element in all that is classified as luxury.
