Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This follow-up to the original Street French by the same author provides the strong working knowledge of colloquialisms and slang so essential to understanding everyday spoken French. Includes a thorough grounding in the many ``color'' words that are used with surprising regularity, due to their other, less vulgar connotations and to the absence of censorship laws in France. The format is similar to that of the first book with dialogues, vocabulary and practice games.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was recommended by someone that took French. Being a few years old (1990) some phrases may be out of date. The book is still helpful in that it has conversations, shows sentence structure, etc. It's more like a workbook than straight reference.
