What is a traveler to do?

So many travelers take French language courses or read books before heading to France, only to find that once they get there, nobody is speaking any of that “book-French” that they learned. And most courses fail to focus on understanding today’s French culture.

French Street Talk is an insider’s guide to speaking French in the 21st century. Whether it’s been awhile since you’ve parler francais’d or you don’t speak a lick of French – this book will give you lessons in casual French or “street talk”, so you can get around without sounding old school.

Written by a fun, free-spirited and funky French native, you’ll learn today’s French patois, cultural insight, and a few cheeky but useful phrases that aren’t taught in formal language courses. It’s like learning French from a friend.
