From getting the best value from the boulangerie to ordering a steak without getting sneered at, an A-to-Z guide to fitting in en Français Englishman Charles Timoney was thrown into French life headfirst twenty-five years ago when he and his wife moved to her native France. He had studied French in school, but his memory of vocabulary lists and conjugation drills proved no match for day-to-day living. As he blundered his way toward fluency, he kept a list of words and phrases that wonderfully (sometimes wickedly) epitomized aspects of the French culture-and were used only by native speakers. Pardon My French tackles the delightful absurdities of French life and language and steers readers past the potential embarrassments of speaking French in France. It is a book no student, traveler, or language maven should be without.

Author: Allison McWood
Culture shock has never been this much fun! Effervescent, Parisian taxi driver, Benoît Garnier is in for the ride of his life when he becomes the personal driver for fashionista wannabe, Courtney Stent. With her head filled with ridiculous stereotypes about French culture, Courtney finds herself in a series of hilariously awkward situations.

(Keeping their relationship professional is even harder) But how long can a charismatic Parisian and an obnoxious tourist realistically survive alone in a taxi together?

Seventeen-year-old Nicole dreams of spending the rest of her life with her boyfriend Nate. So when she finds herself on her way to Paris to study abroad without him, she’s less than thrilled. Paris is filled with cars that move at the speed of light, edible snails, and a language that Nicole can’t speak or read. Worst of all, Nicole feels lost without Nate. She’s not sure she’s capable of finding joie de vivre on her own, but with the help of some new friends—and a certain handsome Frenchman— Nicole might find Paris as sweet as a café au lait after all.

Author: Allen Johnson
To make a friend is a joy. To make a friend in another country is a wonderment—a small miracle. Pardon My French follows the lives of an American couple who have embraced a daunting mission: Not to be spectators in France, but to be absorbed by France. Amidst the minefields of linguistic faux pas, the perplexities of French gestures, the exquisite and often exotic cuisine, and the splendor of Christmas on the Mediterranean—see what it is like for an occasionally gruff American to be adopted into a new family. Witness the hugging, the teasing, and the laughter that follows, when nothing on earth could be more perfect. Experience what it is like to fall in love with the French. Follow the adventures of the author as he pits his rather staid and conventional driving skills against the French speed demons of Languedoc. Step into his sneakers as he tests his basketball prowess against the young French bucks adorned with backward ball caps and over-the-knee Chicago Bulls game shorts. Watch how he frolics in the Mediterranean Sea for the first time with a French topless companion. Marvel as he sits in with a world-class French jazz band. Observe him overcome his shyness in talking to the beautiful nude model from his painting class in the studio atop the village police station. Envision how he learns to dance the tango with his head upright, his chest expanded, and his strides befitting a newly adorned French god—one with sensuality on his mind.

Hetta Coffey is offered a dream job in France, where she can meet up with her significant other, Jenks Jenkins, in Paris. Things become complicated once she arrives.
Author: Jinx Schwartz
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht, and she's not afraid to use it! She's living aboard her forty-five foot boat in Mexico's spectacular Sea of Cortez, taking work where she can get it and, characteristically, she isn't all that concerned about any pesky legalities involved. Docked at a pricey marina in La Paz, her cruising kitty is taking a hit, so when she's offered a dream job, she jumps on it. All she has to do is act as a courier, babysitting equipment and sensitive documentation for her former employer to their new offices in France. Not only does she get to revisit a country she once lived in and loved, she'll meet with her significant other, Jenks Jenkins, in Paris. Oh la la! An easy job and a romantic vacation, all paid for; what could possibly go wrong? With Hetta? Just about everything."
