Nice book. Good resource for brushing up on my French.

Perhaps because I am unfamiliar with the first installment of this series, I didn't have the depth of background necessary to enjoy Book Two. It wasn't a badly written book and it paced quickly enough, I just felt that I didn't understand the characters motivations or relationships as well as I could have. And this very well could be because I had never ready Book One. I am going to look up the first book on Amazon, read it and see if that makes any difference. ( )

A very easy to read book which will help you to become not just text book fluent in French, but speaking like a local in no time. Organisation leaves alot to be desired so post it notes are a must whilst reading :) ( )

This, the second pass at helping beginning students, is a great little read, prompting users to think about differing sources of meaning, rather than assuming a single root word, especially helpful when English has many more sources than the romance French bases.

While not a book for beginners, False Friends does two things well as a reference book. First, it teaches you to mind the little differences so as to not embarrass yourself. Next, it sheds light on a section of spoken language that most textbooks have forgotten - all those little phrases we've grown to use that are culturally specific. The book is a great reference to those expanding their knowledge. ( )
