    Keep the little kiddies away from this one

    This is definately not the school approved textbook that most of us learned French from in Middle school. It's nice to be able to know these common terms so if you do go to France you're not the stupid American laughing with everyone else when they offend you in French. Another one of those helpful handbooks you should probably keep with you during your travels.

    Outstanding book

    Small and sleek, this book has everything! The black cover tells it all! This book is wonderful! Everything you didn't learn in school is in this book! The book contains everything from how to pick up a guy/girl in a bar to how to dump someone! It also includes body parts, sports, how to speak in slang and text messages and much more! When I picked up this book, it did not leave my hands until I memorized evrything! It also has embarassing stories and funny facts! I hope that you enjoy this book as much as I did! I give it 5 stars!

    The French you never got to learn in class

    When skimming through this book, I couldn't contain my laughter. I've taken three years of French but have yet to encounter the slang that everybody wants to know. It's got everything from how to pick up a hot date to telling off your enemies. From clean to obscene, it's a lot of fun.
