Publisher's Summary

Thousands of the most essential French slang and idioms

Understand "real" French

If you simply stick to the formal vocabulary you are taught in your French course, you will have a hard time understanding native speakers. This audiobook will help you to progress in everyday French - the kind you can hear on the street, in movies, and on the radio.

Impress your French-speaking friends

Get a more intensive conversational level that rises above the banal by using some well-chosen slang. Your friends will be impressed by your level of French and will consequently speak to you in a more natural way.

A fun book in itself

This book contains some curse words and interesting expressions used by the French. I am sure you will have a good laugh while learning some of them.

Continually up-to-date slang

Slang is ever-evolving, and terms can grow outdated quickly. The main book has selected the most consistent terms you can hear throughout the years, but, as a bonus, I have created a list of contemporary French terms. This short audiobook (around 200 slang expressions) gets regularly updated with new expressions that appear in media (for example,on YouTube).

New! Never misuse slang again

I also annotate slang words when they are offensive and/or very common. So you will know when you should use them or not.

The most complete French slang audiobook available

Most books available contain only around 400-500 French slang expressions. This audiobook offers more than 1,400.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Incomprehensible English translations"

    Complete hodge-podge of phrases you can't imagine ever needing or wanting presented in no order or context. Speaker can't pronounce anything in English so sometimes you can't tell if he's speaking French or English. I was hoping to brush up on my French (close to fluent 20 years ago) but this was not the answer.

    "useful but needs more context"

    I like the range of topics covered in these lessons. It could be improved with 1) a few seconds of silence between terms to practice, 2) more repetition, 3) more context. For example, sex vocabulary is something one would want to get right and the terms taught could be interpreted in wildly different ways. Could lead to super awkward if not criminal situations.
