Learn the French of the streets or you might faire du gaffe*

Get a grand tour of everyday French as it's spoken in the Francophone world. With the help of thirty dialogues on an audio CD, enacted by native speakers, it clues you in on the idioms, colloquialisms, slang, and vulgarisms currently used by French speakers of all walks of life, from Paris to Perpignan, from Lyon to Le Mans.

  • An overview of signature words differentiating speakers across the Francophone world
  • Engaging exercises that let you test your comprehension and polish your French skills
