French Phrasebook, Assimil

My latest baby is out!


My latest book was published in February 2013 and is available on the Assimil website

I have had great fun working on this book with Assimil and I really hope that it will help people with their French needs when travelling to France or any other French-speaking country.

It is 160 pages and is divided in 4 sections.

The “Introduction”, which tells you how to use the book, gives you a few facts & figures about France as well as a bit of history, and explains a few aspects of the French language.

The “Getting started” section, with 21 lessons to read 21 days before you travel to France, 1 each day. Each lesson comprises of a dialogue, including translation and pronunciation; some easy-to-understand grammatical notes; and one exercise to practise what you have just learnt. The book comes with a free MP3 sample so that you can also listen to the dialogues.

A “Conversing” section, which covers all the vocabulary that you may need along with some interesting cultural facts.

And lastly, an “Index” to help you find exactly what you are looking for.

You will also find on the covers some handy tables for numbers, pronunciation, space and time, asking questions,  useful words and expressions.

It is small and light, and easy to carry around. And very affordable!

Please feel free to leave comments on the book below. I really hope that you enjoy the book and that you find it very helpful during your travels!!

Bon voyage!
