Speaking Better French, The Key Words and Expressions You'll Need Every Day


Speaking Better French, The Key Words and Expressions You'll Need Every Day



This book, and "More Key Words and Expressions" which followed it, have been hailed by reviewers as a unique and innovative idea.

They give you the absolutely essential words that you need to navigate everyday French conversation. Not the textbook formal words but the expressions that real people in France use when they talk to each other.

You'll learn when to use, and when not to use words and expressions like truc, foutu, Oh-la-la, Coucou, payer en liquide, and merde. You'll learn how to faire un bise a quelqu'un, how to say you are sorry, what les grandes surfaces are, and how to tell someone to shut up. You'll learn what a gouter is, and an aperitif dinatoire. You'll find out that Ce sale chat ! doesn't mean the cat is dirty, that passer an exam doesn't mean to pass the exam, and lots, lots more.

And it's all written in a conversational style with each word or expression explained and illustrated with examples in French and their translations in English.

You'll see why a reviewer of Key Words and Expressions on amazon.com said:

"If you really want to learn spoken French, you need this book. You'll need other books as well, you'll need audio materials, and you'll need live language experience, preferably in France. But this book is a necessity."

And why another wrote:

"Perhaps the most amazing thing about this book is that it took until 2007 for anyone to think of writing it! The author's insight is right on target. This book does indeed fill a huge and inexplicable gap in the otherwise very crowded market for books on learning French. (Come to think of it, I haven't found such books in any of the three foreign languages I've studied besides French.)"

And it's FUN to read!

Comments from others:

“I think your books are wonderful. You have made a fantastic contribution to the French language profession.” --- Professor Judy Baughin, Raymond Walters College

“As with your previous book, I am amazed at how fun to read, as well as incredibly informative the book is. It's a wonderful tool” --- Professor Brigitte Humbert, Middlebury College

“I just wanted to let you know that the copy of " Key Words and Expressions" arrived yesterday. I looked through it last night, and I have to say it is just the kind of book I would have liked to have had when I was teaching myself French oh-so-many years ago..” --- Professor John Moran, Director of Language Programs, NYU

“Your little books are great!” ---- Professor AG Fralin, Washington and Lee University

I love your books! They are easy to navigate, and they are extremely useful to non-native French speakers. Maybe I'm odd, but I actually enjoy reading them at night in bed before falling to sleep, they're that entertaining. ---- Professor John Turvaville, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

I've been perusing Key Words for the past couple of days and it's great fun. A feature I'm really liking is the focus on the day-to-day spoken language, which doesn't always follow grammar rules. I'm going to think how I could implement some of your expressions into my fall class. What a great idea for a book! --- Professor Herta Rodina, Ohio University

“I very much like what you have done with the latest book. The expressions you introduce are so much a part of everyday conversational life in France. Too bad that more French texts don't teach them.” --- Professor John Romeiser, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Gorgeous Georges




Gorgeous Georges





A peek inside warm, glowing Chez Georges.

The high as the sky carved mirrors, the handpainted moldings and columns, the plush red velvet banquettes, the white starched french linen tables, the crisp white napkins as big as bathtowels, the soft flickering antique sconces, and the shiny brass bistro railings are but a few of my favorite things.

And that's before our steak frites arrived...











French Pastries




French Pastries





French pastries by Japanese people are typically good quality. Even in the Philippines and Taiwan, the French-style pastries were good. But I'm still curious as to how French pastries in France would taste like. Hmm..

However, food from its respective origin hasn't proved to be spectacular in my case.
