Format: Paperback
Most of the book is dictionary style, with French words alphabetized. The entry tells if the word is masculine or feminine and if it's plural. A very brief definition is given, and then the word is used in a French sentence followed by an English translation.
Example: échanger; to exchange; J'aimerais échanger cette robe que j'ai achetée hier. I would like to exchange this dress that I bought yesterday.
Also included is a category section, which lists la famille (the family), les jours de la semaine (days of the week), les mois de la'année (months of the year), les saisons (sesaons), les nombres (numbers), les couleurs (colors), la nourriture (food), les magasins (stores), les occupations (occupations), and les animaux (animals).
At the back is one vocabulary page to help with endings of words, to show some words that are the same both in English and French, and to help with a few other grammatical tips.
This really isn't for someone who doesn't know any French at all, as it could be difficult to follow. It isn't a phrasebook for visitors to France, as a lot of basics that tourists need to know are not included. However, if you have been studying French or need to just brush up on your vocabulary, this inexpensive little book is a smart choice.

This book was absolutely useless. If you're new to French, just buy an English-French dictionary. I'm an intermediate French speaker, so this book really wasn't useful. Even for beginners, this book simply doesn't have enough depth to warrant buying it.
