Most practical French phrase book, February 26, 2000

Reviewer: "sbgantz" (Alexandria, Virginia USA)

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.

Excellent 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.
