You don’t know what to say to your neighbour.

You want to shop in a market.

You have a meeting with the doctor.

You want to make an appointment over the phone.

You can’t answer “how would you like your steak?” in the restaurant

… and more!



[small_title header_text=”Each chapter covers a typical situation people come across everyday.”]

Using a dialogue between two characters, this includes ordering at a restaurant, shopping in a market, working in an office, meeting the doctor, making an appointment over the phone, and talking to a neighbour. The combination of colorful images and short dialogues will teach you what French people really say and give you words to finally respond to them.
