practical French phrase book, February 26, 2000
I was just getting ready to buy Rick Steve's Italian phrase book and
thought I'd review the French version. I've taken other phrase books
with me in France, but this is the one I use and it is appropriately
worn. Although I got to intermediate French in college, I did not learn
how to reserve a hotel room. I first used this phrase book to make hotel
reservations (even with non-English speakers). This book also helped me
get gas (don't forget, sans plomb) and find English language movies with
French subtitles (V.O. = version originale). I have also found Rick's
phonetic French to be straightforward. This is the most practical French
phrase book I've seen.

quick reference for the traveler, in any situation, October 6, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
Very helpful. Coded according to subject (food, accommodation,
transportation), with phrases that satisfy any situation, and are
sufficient to communicate without the need to use complete sentences.
Gives the English, French, and French pronunciation... and many
travelers books do not give the latter. Of 3 books I took with me to
France, this was the one I used almost all the time, due to the ease of
finding what I needed, and quickly.
