1.0 out of 5 stars You're better off just getting a list of French words on google
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars For US$2.00, this packs a wallop, Feb. 29 2004

This review is from: 1001 Most Useful French Words (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast basic review, Nov. 4 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 1001 Most Useful French Words (Paperback)
A bilinguial quasi-dictionary, it covers a lot of essential vocabulary and demonstrates usage in sample sentences. Worth all of its paltry price. Poor-quality paper, but vellum is not to be had for two dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars !001 French words - good, Oct. 5 2011
This review is from: 1001 Most Useful French Words (Paperback)
I think its a great little book. They have a few minor mistakes but overall its good. Its says 1001 French words but actually if you read all the examples and study them you will probably learn 5000 French words. For a student of French its a great little tool to expose you to new words. Its small and thin so its easy to carry around, also the price it right. Two thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff!, Oct. 3 2011
This review is from: 1001 Most Useful French Words (Paperback)
If I can memorize a mere 1001 words, surely that is a good thing? The practicality of most of these words is great. If you have a basic understanding of French, even at a very primary level, this is an excellent book to tuck in your pocket. I read a page every now and again to try to remember them - flipping a page at random so far but more systematic approach might be a good thing. An easy addition to a shelf of French books and USEFUL!
