French for Xenophobes
Lingo Learners – French for Xenophobes
A humorous approach to French that shows that you can speak the lingo simply by using plain English.
Invaluable phrases will trip off your tongue, gems like:
‘Is that a baguette in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?’, ‘You did not tell me it would be extra’, and ‘Are you sure that all these symptoms are caused by a liver attack?’
“Thanks to this book I even managed to make a Parisian
understand me!” S. Cargo
I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men and German to my horse. I would never be without my Xenophobe's Lingo Learner.
Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor 1500-1558
About the author
Drew Launay is the author of more than a dozen novels, plays, works of non-fiction, and BBC broadcasts. After discovering that the natives of other countries refused to understand what he was talking about, Drew devised the Xenophobe's way of coping with the problem and now speaks Spanish, French, Italian, and German like a true Brit. He lives in Nerja, near Malaga, Spain where he sits most days on the beach with his laptop writing to language professors and academics world-wide warning them that their number is up.
