"Max and Jackie held their stomachs and gurgled with laughter. 'La fête farine!' She said 'la fête farine.' Did you hear that, Jackie? Hahahahaha!" With that resounding laughter, expatriate Kristin Espinasse began her real education in the French language. The glee of her very Gallic children forced this former French major to realize that all the vocabulary books on earth could not substitute for real-world experience. Before long, American-born Kristin was sharing her renewed romance with the French language on a blog (French-word-a-day.com) from her home in Provence. This thoroughly charming book recounts her continuing excursion into a language that refuses to accept compromises.
