This brand-new title in Barron's foreign language vocabulary building series replaces a previous French vocabulary-building volume that had the same focus and general purpose. However, this new larger book presents approximately 13,000 entries--more than twice the number of words with definitions as the title it replaces. It also includes an enclosed audio MP3, which coaches language students in correct pronunciation of French and presents approximately 10 hours of audio, which covers virtually the entire book. All vocabulary in this book is categorized under different themes. Each theme groups together many different words relating to similar topics, which helps students of French and travelers to France conveniently find words that are related by subject. Among each book's 24 separate subject themes are: business terms, medical terms, household terms, scientific words and phrases, units of measurement, clothing, food and dining, transportation, art and culture, and others.
To make a friend is a joy. To make a friend in another country is a wonderment—a small miracle. Pardon My French follows the lives of an American couple who have embraced a daunting mission: Not to be spectators in France, but to be absorbed by France. Amidst the minefields of linguistic faux pas, the perplexities of French gestures, the exquisite and often exotic cuisine, and the splendor of Christmas on the Mediterranean—see what it is like for an occasionally gruff American to be adopted into a new family. Witness the hugging, the teasing, and the laughter that follows, when nothing on earth could be more perfect. Experience what it is like to fall in love with the French. Follow the adventures of the author as he pits his rather staid and conventional driving skills against the French speed demons of Languedoc. Step into his sneakers as he tests his basketball prowess against the young French bucks adorned with backward ball caps and over-the-knee Chicago Bulls game shorts. Watch how he frolics in the Mediterranean Sea for the first time with a French topless companion. Marvel as he sits in with a world-class French jazz band. Observe him overcome his shyness in talking to the beautiful nude model from his painting class in the studio atop the village police station. Envision how he learns to dance the tango with his head upright, his chest expanded, and his strides befitting a newly adorned French god—one with sensuality on his mind.
