this was a big help! especially at restaurants, even though one of my travel companions was dissappointed that it didn't have 'bacon' It did help us in so many other ways though!!!

This book has those words & phrases you always need to say but can never find in typical phrasebooks!

I bought this to prepare for a trip to France. I like how many practical phrases are included. Some of the other language training software I looked at did not have very much practical info for a traveler.

This little guide book helped me survive two weeks in France. It has an excellent coverage of all things needed to communicate in French, including little tips for survival in a new culture. This American really appreciated having this pocket-sized life saver!

This book has everything conceivable. While I'm glad I have it, Rick's standard Paris guidebook has enough language/phrases to help you through your travels. If you're not buying a Rick Steve's guidebook I would recommend this for your translation needs. Faster (at least for me)than searching on a phone app.
