I completely disagree with the previous review! I could not be happier with this book. I'm doing A2 french and first of all, I think this book is really interesting because of all the weird things the French say! =] It makes you realise how stupid and random English idioms are too.
I have no idea what the author of said review meant because under the idiom (written in french) there is the literal translation and then one (or more!) of the English (or Americain but I didn't think this was a problem at all) equivalent. For example < 'Ce n'est pas Perou' (It's not Peru) - It's nothing to write home about, it's no great fortune. >
Anyway, I also find it really useful for all of the 4 areas of learning a language as you see the little paragraph/dialogue explaining the idiom in French, then at the back is the translation in English and there are also recordings of these on the CD (which go very easily onto I-pod)...
Listening: you can listen and then read the translation to see how well you understood, or better, you can treat it like a dictation and write down what you hear (this makes you listen very carefully and tests spelling as well!)
Reading: read in French then compare understanding of translation
Writing: look at the English translation and put it back into French. This is actually quite easy because the vocab isn't too obscure.
Speaking: Record yourself on mobile or something and check your pronunciation against the recording.
So yeah, I think this is really useful and if you do the above you really remember the idiom =] My French teacher said that to get top grades you really need to include idiom so this is good for students =D

This book is better than I expected. Each idiom has a literal translation and also a translation of what it really means. In addition, there's a little sketch and also a paragraph or two in French with a little story using the phrase in context, along with giving an alternative and easier to understand way of saying the same thing.

Couple all that with mp3 recordings of all the idioms spoken by real French people and you have a very useful little book.

I ran this past my (French) French tutor and she said the book looked pretty good. She didn't use (or even recognise) all the sayings, but she thought it was a good addition to my French library.

Having said all that, I still struggle to remember them and the chances of me using them in context are slim, but at least I'll know now what them mean if I see or hear them in real life.

I bought this book as a present for a friend who had a reasonable knowledge of French and I thought he would enjoy the fun side of it. I was right ! I would recommend this book to anyone who already has a sound knowledge of French and would appreciate the facetiousness of the language. I knew all the idioms except one and I am French born ! I would have welcomed twice as many entries though !

I bought this book of idioms for a family who are going to live in France for a few years. It is quite advanced, so probably at least a GCSE standard is required to be able to grasp them. But they are amusingly presented, with translations of literal meaning, so quite amusing.
