Dirty French: Second Edition

Everyday Slang from "What's Up?" to "F*%# Off!"

Learn the slang words, modern phrases, and curses they definitely never taught you in French class with this super-handy and hilariously improper English-French phrasebook.

You already know enough French to get by, but you want to be able to tell those inside jokes, greet your friends in a laid-back manner, and casually pick someone up at a bar.

From “what’s up?” to “Wanna go home with me?” Dirty French will teach you how to speak like you're a regular on the streets of Paris. But you’ll also discover material that goes beyond a traditional phrasebook, including: 

  • Hilarious insults
  • Provocative facts
  • Explicit swear words
  • Themed French cocktails
  • And more!

Next time you’re traveling or chatting with your friends in “the language of love,” pick up this book, drop the textbook formality, and get dirty!
