Excuse My French: Fluent Français without the faux pas

Excuse My French: Fluent Français without the faux pas

Life together in a bi-lingual relationship for Rachel and Jean-Christophe created many amusing miscomprehensions and often sheer bewilderment. How do you translate, ‘Don’t beat around the bush’ and why does ‘to be left high and dry’ in English, become ‘rester en carafe’ in French? Excuse My French! is their solution to all this conversational confusion. The book comprises of 700 expressions in English and in French, divided into 12 chapters, which cover all the essential topics in life – including food and drink, money, business work and sex. It presents the essential idioms and metaphors of the ‘other’ language in a fresh, light-hearted way that won’t make you feel like you’re back in a classroom. Packed with quizzes, glossaries and interesting detail on the historical contexts for how phrases were coined, and illustrated throughout with line drawings, it will improve language skills and promote the Entente Cordiale between tourists, students and business associates, as well as encourage relationships to blossom between les Gaulois et les Rosbifs all over the world!
