Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Berlitz does a great job with these phrase books. They are designed to be used by travellers, with quick access to short sections that deal with specific areas, e.g. ordering from a menu, banking, transportation. They give you useful phrases that would commonly be used in these settings, like "I want to buy a ticket to _______." "What time does the train leave?" The book lists the phrase side-by-side in English and in French, so if you don't want to risk trying to speak the phrase in French, you could point to the phrase, and a French-speaking person could read the phrase in their language.
If you do not know the language, it would be worth the extra money to get the phrase book with the CD. The CD has about half of the phrases spoken by someone whose native tongue is French. I had four years of French in high school, but that was a long time ago. However, hearing the words again is building my courage to speak them on my upcoming trip to France.
If you have you have used other Berlitz French Phrase books you won't find anything new here. But if it's you first French Phrase book, then It's a great reference book.
This book and cd are great for someone who speaks English and had to spend weeks with friends who speak only French mostly.
