The Blurb

Now is the time to realize that dream.

Parisienne French will have you cultured, chic and, most importantly, casually chatting with locals as if you were raised in the City of Lights. With refined phrases to express yourself at the Musee d’Orsay, posh vocabulary for catching up on this season’s couture fashion and hip slang for flirting at the hottest nightclub, you’ll effortlessly navigate the social scenes of Paris.

Your new eloquent French will win over any vrai patriote, who will warmly welcome you to la vie parisienne.

The Review

There is only one way to describe Parisienne French – Chic Phrases, Slang & Style by Rhianna Jones and that word is charming. It is a charming little handbag sized book that has everything French in it. Jones talks about Paris as if the city is her best friend, her lover and part of her soul.

The easy to read book is broken down into sections such as culture, fashion and food etc. Her knowledge of Paris the city is only rivalled by her knowledge of the French language. However, don’t fear that you are about to get a high school tutorial in which you learn useless phrases such as le souris sur la table – I won’t lie, I stole this quote from Eddie Izzard…of topic but never mind – oh no, you are going to learn how to speak like a local. You will learn slang, current vernacular and even text talk.

If you are a Francophile and you want to feel more at one with the French way of life then Parisienne French – Chic Phrases, Slang & Style by Rhianna Jones is the book for you!

Parisienne French – Chic Phrases, Slang & Style by Rhianna Jones is available now.

    Ah . . .I see you like Paris! I’ve never been there. I do however, love books, and sometimes have 3 or 4 started for whatever mood I’m in. I did want to tell you thank you for coming to Jamie’s blog. It is encouraging for him when I write to him about the blog. it amazing him that some many people have read at least a part of his story. Mental health in solitary confinement is difficult – being deprived of everything that makes us human. When he gets out – sometime in the next 7 years it will be a big boost of confidence to see all the people who have come by.. I hope you come back – leave him a comment somewhere. I send them to him. Have a wonderful weekend! Sonni
