Continuously updated slang words available in a SPECIAL BONUS e-book!

Slang is ever-evolving and terms can grow outdated pretty quickly. The main book contains the most consistently used terms you can hear throughout the years, but, as a bonus, I have also created a list of contemporary French terms for fresher, more up-to-date content.

This short e-book (containing 200++ seasonal slang expressions that won’t hang around forever) gets regularly updated with new expressions that appear in various media including YouTube. Guaranteed to keep you sounding cool and never passé!

New! Never misuse a slang expression again

The e-book is updated with annotations to let you know if the term is popular/common or if it could be considered offensive by some. This way, you will know when it is appropriate for you to use or not, eliminating the risk of offending anybody or committing a social faux pas.

When you see (P) beside a term, it means that it is popular and widely used. It is therefore highly recommended for you to recognize and understand it for immediate use.

Words and phrases marked (O) means that it is offensive so use with caution! It would be good to learn the slang, but be careful of using it liberally in your daily speech.

Examples from the book:

Ça va? (P)                       How are things? How are you doing?

Comme ci, comme ça (P) So-so

Chiant (P) (O)                  Boring

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Paul Vanderlei.

    When I originally bought this eBook it was only $4.90 and contained around 300 words. I thought the price was acceptable because it included some MP3s, which is a feature I’ve never seen on books related to slang. However, when I bought the second edition of the eBook it had much more content. It had 1400 words and the expressions used in the book were very consistent! I didn’t even have to pay again because Frédéric gave us the updated version for free. A lot more expressions were included in the eBook and I also got a few hours’ worth of MP3s. I really think it is a great value for only $9.90 and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to learn some French that isn’t learned in a textbook.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I highly recommend this eBook. I use some of the expressions featured in it with two of my French friends, who were surprised that my French sounded so natural. Know they speak to me much more casually and it’s mostly thanks to what I learned in this eBook. Learning even more by talking to my French friends is a sort of side-benefit you get if you buy this eBook.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is an excellent slang book. I am learning many new expressions that I can use with my colleagues.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    Very funny eBook! I had a good laugh thanks to of some humorous expressions I learned in this eBook.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    I am a language teacher and am always trying to find new ways to bring culture and authentic learning into the classroom. Using these expressions as “Phrase du Jour” has made my life easier!

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    I learned a lot of new expressions and the MP3s are very funny.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love the MP3s with Frederick’s accent cursing in English. Haha! A great buy.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    Really great value, fun to read. More useful than most of my other French books. If the author wants it to be *perfect,* the double-ups could be edited from the glossary– there are just a few (e.g. drunk). I really love it and hope Frédéric writes more books soon.

  10. Rated 4 out of 5

    This list has brought many new expressions to me and will be a good resource (I will selectively choose from it as there are many expressions inappropriate for my students!) for my class as well to get some more current, up-to-date spoken language in the mix.

  11. Rated 5 out of 5

    If you are learning French, Colloquial French by Frederic Bibard is a must in your collection. This book written by a French native speaker is the perfect tool to learn French slang, idioms and useful colloquial expressions. This book delves into a part of the language that is often forgotten in language courses. Slang is an active part of the language and used on daily life by native speakers.
    The book covers a variety of topics and offers current expressions that will not make you sound antiquated or unnatural. Moreover, some slang is pointed out to be very popular or offensive, which is very useful.
    The book is really entertaining and easy to use. Next to the French expression you get the English equivalent and you also have mp3 audios to learn the correct pronunciation. As a result, it is an excellent resource to learn French on your own or a good complement to your classes because no teacher is required.
    The mp3 audio files can be downloaded, so you can put them in your phone or music device and listen to them when you are on your way to work without needing to be at home.
    I totally recommend this book to French students. There is no point in having a perfect grammar if you then fail having an informal chat with a native speaker.

  12. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great resource to learn French. this book as the title said, will teach you the colloquial French. 76 pages divided into 24 chapters which shows you lots of daily phrases in different categories for example family, sports or justice.
    The audio is very useful as well and it can be downloaded so you can listen to it anywhere.
    Funny and easy to follow even for beginners, I would definitely recommended it!

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    This book is a great next step for anyone looking to further their knowledge of French in a way that will be useful to them in the real world. In contrast to other books for advancing knowledge of French, this one is usable and step-by-step, which is important to me when going in depth and learning French at an advanced level. Couple that with the price, and this book really is an unbeatable deal – it was much more useful than the big-name books.
