Alexis Munier relocated to Europe in her mid-twenties and began teaching English at world-renowned language schools in Russia, Slovenia, and Italy. Now a writer, English teacher, and translator, Munier still finds time to perfect her French slang and swoon from her Swiss husband's flattery now and again. She lives in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Emmanuel Tichelli hails from a small town in French-speaking Switzerland, a country with four official languages. Growing up in a feisty French/Italian family, he learned the power of persuasive language at a young age. Tichelli argued with his parents in French, he spoke German at school, watched American TV, and hit on every Italian lady he met, in her native tongue. He lives in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Très bien. Up until now I have had a limited vocabulary with my francophone friends in Singapore. Tu est une salope, has been the limit of my retaliation when they talk about me thinking that I do not understand. I usually can follow but am not quick to reply, merde. I can now practice some more witty retaliations. Je comprends mais je ne peut pas reprondre.
