Bescherelle diversifies


Lagardère Publishing

Paris, August 26, 2013

The Bescherelle brand celebrates its 100th anniversary at Editions Hatier with groundbreaking new releases for all ages, platforms and fields!

The forerunner of the Bescherelle line – a dictionary of 8,000 common French verbs – was created in 1843 by Louis-Nicolas Bescherelle. In 1913, the dictionary was acquired by the Hatier publishing house. At the end of the Second World War, a simplified version was published as La Conjugaison pour tous (Conjugation for All), the verb-conjugation textbook used by generations of French schoolchildren.

Today, the Bescherelle range has been considerably expanded to include additional reference works, books on history, foreign languages and the subtleties of the French language, a board game and much more.

To celebrate its 100th anniversary at Hatier, Bescherelle has decided to innovate in partnership with myBlee by introducing a groundbreaking new application for practicing dictation.

The Bescherelle brand, whose trustworthiness and renown are legendary (with over a million Bescherelle grammar volumes sold every year), adapts brilliantly to the times and to address everyone’s concerns
