    Got us by in the French countryside

    The little book proved to be very useful. Its size was perfect to carry around. As an adjunct, a CD helping with pronunciation would be a good companion to aid the user before arriving in France.

    Lots of help

    I don't know any French and was a little scared of spending two days there on my own (I taveled alone.)This book was great. Everything was broken down into useful areas such as how to order at a restaurant, how to check into your hotel, how to get through customs and so on. It was well worth the purchase.
