Not in the same league as Robert but still quite useful

Barron's language guides are a mixed bag. This one is not too bad. There is no pretence at lexicography but this guide is nevertheless a very useful pocket reference to current French idioms. It is, however, nowhere near as good as le Robert d'expressions et locutions (In French). Students should find it OK for A-level and early degree French. It is also useful, though limited, for professional translators.
