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.

They capture the true zeitgeist, where the English translation is just comme ci, comme ca. If you're a linguistics geek or language lover with a curiosity about the origins of the foreign phrases, you need this book on your shelf. 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. Entries for each phrase offer precise translations, the surprising origins of expressions, and commonly used terms you didn't even know were foreign.

Savoir Faire will save you from the embarrassment of misusing a foreign phrase and promises to up the ante on your everyday lexicon with hundreds of new phrases. This book also includes phonetic pronunciations for each phrase (you'll be surprised what you've been mispronouncing!) and sidebars that explore the quirks of some favorite expressions. Don't suffer one more trip to the museum asking yourself, "What the heck is trompe l'oeil?" Don't put down yet another Umberto Eco novel out of sheer confusion.

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.
