False Friends: Book Two

Faux Amis: Book Two

by

False Friends (Book Two) is the painless way to brush up on your French. It helps you to avoid those little linguistic faux pas by teaching you how to use the language correctly, thus avoiding those troublesome false friends (words that sound similar in two languages but mean something utterly different...)

This companion volume is aimed at anyone learning French. Readers will benefit from the pain free way to polish up their French, picking up hints and clues about how best to use the French language along the way.

Following on from False Friends (Book One), Ellie Malet Spradbery brings her fun-filled approach to French back for the second title in this series.

"False Friends: Faux Amis: Book Two" is now available. If you enjoy exploring the highways and byways of French language and French culture this book is for you: a light-hearted look at the words that could trip up the unwary traveller. Although not a new concept, False Friends (foreign words and phrases that look like one thing but mean another) has not been tackled for some time, and this version is fresh and original.
Did you know that "assister" means to attend and not to assist? Or that "attendre" means to wait and not to attend? After reading this book you will be better equipped to deal with life across the English Channel or, as our near neighbours will insist on calling it, "La Manche" (the sleeve).
The booklet displays a love of language, and is in six helpful sections.

Since retiring from Senate House London University library, Ellie spends her time travelling in France, eating French food and reading French books. I think one could safely call her a Francophile.
