This book is the all essential guide if you wish to do any sort of travelling in France. It helps you to understand what those nasty people on the street are saying to you and helps you to retort. Not for use in formal situations!! Particularly helpful if you plan to spend a long period of time in a Francophone country as it's a great aid to keeping up with those French-speaking friends you may acquire. Well worth it.

I'm sure when this book was new, it was probably great (i.e. 5 stars). Through my own error, I failed to notice this book was so old. Language moves on, and colloquial French is different now - just like it moved on in England. I'm sure it's better than nothing, but I suspect it's a bit like a 'hip Dad trying to be cool' type French now.

My 13 year old grand daughter found this book just what she needs to enable her to e-mail French friends she has made while visiting me in France where I live. The french she learns in school, while quite correct, is rather too formal for teen age chat. What she would like now is a book of french texting language.

Useful for every day conversation. In any language proverbs and sayings are a mystery to anybody trying to grasp a new language and this assists in a simple manner.

Having seen and perused this book at my French Conversation group, I saw it as an essential part of my collection and decided to look on Amazon. It was easy to find and was advertised at the price I was happy to pay. It was described in detail as to it's condition and paying was simple and within three days it arrived with a hand written note from the vendor which added to the feeling of personal shopping. It arrived exacly as described in excellent condition. I have decided to always check out Amazon before making any purchases in the future.
