Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For anyone taking this book to France, "point and pronounce" will mean point and be understood. After all, the idea is to communicate and that's exactly what this delightful guide will help you do. And what Frenchman won't respond to Jill Butler's colorful, catchy artwork -- it's candy for the eyes."

I am a native French speaker and French teacher and this has been my number one choice of giveaway book to y students. The illustrations and the quality of translation is excellent!

I spent a week in Paris for business earlier this month and had only 6 days¿ notice about the trip. I don¿t speak French and I had never been outside of the U.S. I found this book, Rendez-vous with France, at the local library and it was my saving grace throughout the week. By using the book and its charming illustrations, I was able to communicate with shuttle drivers, hotel staff, street vendors and wait staff. I literally could not have gotten through the week without it! Since I was in Paris for business I didn¿t really get to EXPERIENCE much of Paris, but I have already bought this book and Jill Butler's next book on wandering in Paris for my next trip.
