    DescriptionThis book will help you use the little key words and expressions that you'll need every day in French conversation. They are the French equivalents of English expressions like: "just in case," "as soon as," "in spite of," "provided that," and many others. You might use an idiom like "sowing his wild oats" once in ten years, but you hear and use expressions like "just in case" and "as soon as" all the time. You need to know them! They make the language flow. In addition you'll learn how to use the most common everyday expressions from colloquial spoken French, like "Pas de probl me," "Quelle horreur," "J'en ai marre," and "Ne te casse pas la t te." The key words and expressions are individually discussed and illustrated in phrases and sentences, each with a discussion of context so that you will become more comfortable with them. Not only will you recognize these expressions and key words if you hear or read them, but you will be able to use them yourself. This book will be a pleasure for you. It's one of those rare finds, a book that is both very useful and also fun to read!

    Review quote
    "I've been perusing "Key Words" for the past couple of days and it's great fun. A feature I'm really liking is the focus on the day-to-day spoken language, which doesn't always follow grammar rules. I'm going to think how I could implement some of your expressions into my fall class. What a great idea for a book!" -- Professor Herta Rodina, Ohio University
