French A Self-Teaching Guide You don’t learn French to make Parisians laugh. But that’s just what happens to many graduates of language courses and books. Why? Because the French they’ve learned is either outdated or a textbook version of the language taught in classrooms. Now, you can teach yourself how to speak, write, and read French like a native in just 15 easy-to-follow lessons. Focusing on the most frequently used words in the language, French: A Self-Teaching Guide shows you a special way to enrich your French vocabulary by over 2,000 words without having to resort to monotonous memorization exercises A special chapter entitled "Faux-Amis" warns you about a group of misleading French words that are spelled the same as their English counterparts but mean something altogether different in French. More than just a language guide, this fascinating volume provides special information on French culture, local customs, and current trends. And for business travellers, there’s also a computer section that includes the latest data-processing terms and a drawing of computer parts—in French and English, of course. Like our other popular STGs, this easy-to-follow program is packed with self-tests to measure progress, special drills and exercises to reinforce new material, and lesson exercises to help you practice the skills you’ve just learned.
