It’s easy to assume that French words mean the same as English words, when they look and sound pretty much the same. While that is often true, unfortunately some words may have entirely different meanings than what you might expect. They are called false friends, or faux amis. These faux amis can cause misunderstandings and awkward situations when they really mean something entirely different than what you anticipated.

“French Faux Amis” will help you avoid these embarrassing situations. It isn’t a dry list of faux amis. It’s written in conversational language and it’s easy and fun to read. Each faux ami word pair is explained so that you will understand how the French word is used compared to English usage. You’ll also see examples of its use in sentences and phrases.

When you’ve finished reading this book you’ll have learned most of these faux amis without ever having had to consciously memorize them, simply because they’re so interesting.

This book combines three previous books by the same author: “Speaking Better French, Faux Amis”, “Speaking Better French, More Faux Amis” and “Speaking Better French, Still More Faux Amis”. It allows you to have all the faux amis in one place for much easier reference.

Praise for “Speaking Better French, Faux Amis” by the same author:

“I am amazed at how much fun to read, as well as how incredibly informative, the book is. It's a wonderful tool that I'll be happy to recommend to my colleagues and students.”.....Profeessor Brigitte Humbert, Middlebury College

"I love the Faux Amis, especially the relaxed, conversational presentation. I'm going to suggest that we recommend it for students in our intermediate and advanced classes as a supplementary reference book."....Professor Norman Shapiro, Wesleyan University

“I think your books are wonderful. You have made a fantastic contribution to the French language profession.”…. Professor Judy Baughin, Raymond Walters College

“I have very much enjoyed Faux Amis and plan to order it for my translation class this coming semester. I put a great deal of emphasis on these false friends in the course. You have done a real service to learners of French…This is important work.”… Professor John Romeiser, University of Tennessee

I love your books! They are easy to navigate, and they are extremely useful to … non-native French speakers. I actually enjoy reading them at night in bed before falling to sleep, they're that entertaining. ---- Professor John Turvaville, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

“Your little books are great!” ---- Professor AG Fralin, Washington and Lee University

“I was a little skeptical when I ordered this book, and felt it would end up being just a list of words I’d have to memorize. But it’s an amazingly interesting book” --- Reader reviewer,

HASH(0x908a663c) von 5 Sternen The Perfect Book for Students at Every Level 30. Juni 2009
Von John F. Moran - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I had for quite some time had copies of the Mr. Rosenthal's three previous "faux amis" books, and just when they were just about worn out from use, along comes this wonderful combined book. As a French professor, I find that this book is the perfect supplement for learners at all levels. For the beginning student, in particular the student who has never learned a foreign language, this work is a true eye-opener. So many beginning students immediately fall into the trap of "faux amis"; however, with this book, the beginner can, from the get-go, develop the skills necessary to avoid these commonest of common traps. For the intermediate and advanced student, this book is the perfect reference. Not only does the exhaustive list of "faux amis" provide the more advanced learner an easily accessible catalogue of traps, but also the entries for each "faux ami" go into great detail, explaining both where the potential problem lies and what the accurate translation(s) for the word or expression sought are. Get this book!

HASH(0x908a6690) von 5 Sternen Faux Amis in Paris 4. April 2010
Von ACEMAN - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is the book that you should have had in your beginning high school French class but didn't. It isn't just a book about watching out for false cognates,but gives you the phrases and the words that are actually spoken in any conversation in a Paris Bistro or on the Metro if you want to feel like a Parisian. The book has improved my understanding and speaking of French and has gained me some respect from my French friends and local shop keepers.Make no mistake, this is a very sophisticated book and one should order the other books in S. Rosenthal's series. One reason I didn't give it five stars is that the book should of had a disk attached on the actual French pronunciation of the phrases. Language is meant to be heard and spoken. And while this book and Rosenthal's other books are light years ahead of nearly all books on the meaning and use of French, there should be a disk of the spoken phrases attached so that one could hear the language and these phrases as they should be spoken.

HASH(0x908a696c) von 5 Sternen Making friends with faux amis 26. Mai 2009
Von Ruth G. Koizim - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Why do French and English share so many words that have such different meanings? Rather than give up learning French (or English), do yourself a favor and buy this book. Clear and easy to understand examples will help you say what you really mean. Does it matter? Well, imagine that you wanted to tell your dinner guests that you used only the freshest, natural ingredients in your recipes - but instead you told them that none of the dishes contained condoms!

"French Faux Amis" is as fun to read as it is useful - VERY!

HASH(0x908a6e94) von 5 Sternen painless learning 2. Juni 2009
Von Herta Rodina - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Faux amis is an excellent, reader-friendly resource for anyone interested in improving his or her listening and speaking skills in French. I recommend it to my students, especially those going abroad, because few academic texts cover these key vocabulary issues with as much thoroughness and clarity as Rosenthal. His engaging, down-to-earth style makes this an entertaining as well as a highly informative book.

HASH(0x908a6eac) von 5 Sternen Faux Amis is a Vrai Ami 21. Januar 2010
Von K. B. Hottle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The closeness of English and French gives Americans a false sense of the subtle differences between the languages. Some are obvious, such as the word preservatif, and create embarrassing situations. Others are more subtle, such as the French use of the word sympa, from the word sympathique. This book, a combination of the author's previous books on the subject, gives the student of French a tool with which to master some of the challenges of learning a language that is essentially the first cousin of English. Dr. Rosenthal provides a guide well worth the cost and the time to read.
