Vocabulary alone isn't enough.

To survive in the most sophisticated - and most scathing - nation on Earth you will need to understand the many peculiarities of the (very peculiar) French culture. And for that you need A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi.

If you want to fit in with the French you'll have to know how to deal with sardonic waiters; why school children hate Charlemagne; the etiquette of kissing, joke-telling and drinking songs; what to do with a bidet, and, of course, how to convey absolute, shattering indifference with a single syllable (Bof!).

Charles Timoney provides a practical, pleasurable guide to the charms of the Gallic people - from their daily routines to their history, from their come-ons to their put-downs. Read on and put the oh la la back into your French vacances. Your inner Gaul will thank you for it.
