"Thumb-indexed edition"

A hundred years of experience in dictionary publishing lies behind this edition of the famous "Cassell's French Dictionary." After more than thirty impressions of the previous edition this entirely new dictionary has been compiled by a team of eminent linguists.

Reviewing the new dictionary The Times Educational Supplement said: "One handles this dictionary with the same pleasure that a craftsman feels when he finds that a tool, dulled and blunted by long use and passage of time, has come back sharpened and polished, refurbished and fit once more for long years of useful service. Everyone has his testing-points for a dictionary and the present reviewer, after submitting this one to the ordeal, awarded it a tentative full marks. Its minor defects pale into insignificance before the scholarly achievement of a work for which the publishers can rightly claim that it is ?the most authoritative, up-to-date and, within the limits of size, the most comprehensive French dictionary available."

If you buy into the Pepe Le Pew stereotype of the French - arrogant, stuffy, overly amorous, and rather odiferous (Pepe Le Pew was a skunk. Talk about stereotypical!) - then think again. Not only are the French people some of the most relaxed, pleasant people you'll ever meet, but their society is one of the oldest, most culturally rich societies in the world. So it's no surprise that French is known as perhaps the most beautiful of all languages. Listen to someone speak French - sure, you don't have a clue what she's saying, but aren't you enraptured by the sound of it?

Unfortunately, just because a language is beautiful doesn't mean that it's easy to learn. Although French has many things in common with English, French has had many, many centuries to evolve into the language it is today, which means it's had all that time to become more complex. That's where French For Dummies can help. Written in partnership with the language experts at Berlitz, this book can give you what you need for basic communication in French.

French For Dummies covers the following topics and more:

  • Basic pronunciation and gestures
  • The nuts and bolts of French grammar
  • Meeting and greeting in French
  • Situations in which you can use French: Making small talk, dining out, shopping, and talking on the phone
  • Traveling to France: Dealing with French currency, staying at a hotel, and getting around town
  • Top Ten lists on ways to pick up French quickly, things you should never say in French, favorite French expressions, and important French holidays to remember.
  • Appendixes with verb conjugation tables, as well as a French mini-dictionary
  • French For Dummies also comes with a CD that has audio transcriptions of all the exercises in the book, so that you can actually hear the French pronunciations.

    So whether you're taking a business trip and need to pick up a little French quickly; you're cramming for your high school French final; or you've always wanted to learn a new language but don't have the time to drag yourself to a class once a week, French For Dummies can get you well on your way to becoming fluent in no time.
