Introduction to French for Cultural Tourism and Heritage Management
Many professional roles in cultural tourism and heritage management require demanding language skills. One prime example is that of tour guide or museum docent; guiding visitors is a professional role in the tourism industry that draws on art history, ethnography, visitor management and spoken presentation expertise. The French term for a professionally trained and accredited tour guide is une guide-conférencière or, in masc. form un guide-conférencier.
