Publisher Comments:

GET D!RTY

Next time youre traveling or just chattin in French with your friends, drop the textbook formality and bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:

•Cool slang

•Funny insults

•Explicit sex terms

•Raw swear words

Dirty French teaches the casual expressions heard every day on the streets of France:

•What's up?

Ça va?

•He's totally hot.

Il est un gravure de mode.

•That brie smells funky.

Ce brie sent putain de drôle.

•I'm gonna get ripped!

Je vais me fracasser!

•I gotta piss.

Je dois pisser.

•The ref is fucking asshole.

L'arbitre est un gros enaelé!

•Wanna try doggy-style?

Veux-tu faire l'amour en levrette?

Synopsis:

This book includes phrases for every situation, including expressions for describing art that make one sound smart and cool. Use sweet words to entice a local beauty into a walk along the Seine, and less-then-philosophical rebuffs for those overly zealous, espresso-fueled cafe "poets." There are enough insults and swear words to offend every person in France without even speaking to them in English, which they really dislike.
