"Französisch für Dummies" bietet einen leichten und unterhaltsamen Einstieg in die französische Sprache. Zunächst verraten die Autoren, wie Sie französische Wörter richtig aussprechen und betonen und führen Sie auch in die Grundlagen der französischen Grammatik ein. Dann wird es praktisch, denn jedes Kapitel beschäftigt sich mit einer Alltagssituation: Sie lernen, wie Sie sich auf Französisch vorstellen, im Restaurant bestellen oder nach dem Weg fragen. Sie finden sich in einer typischen Büroumgebung wieder und vereinbaren Termine, mieten eine Wohnung an oder buchen eine Flugreise. Aber auch Ihre Freizeit kommt nicht zu kurz: Sie gehen mit Freunden aus, kaufen ein, sprechen über Ihre Hobbys und machen Sport. Dabei nehmen Sie immer die jeweils wichtigsten Sätze, Umschreibungen und Begriffe auf und erhalten nebenbei viele Informationen zum Alltag und zur Kultur in Frankreich. Am Ende jedes Kapitels gibt es kleine Übungen, mit denen Sie Ihre erworbenen Sprachkenntnisse prüfen können. Im Anhang des Buches finden Sie Verbtabellen und ein kleines Französisch-Deutsch-/Deutsch-Französisch-Wörterbuch. Auf der beiliegenden CD gibt es die Dialoge aus dem Buch zum Anhören und Nachsprechen.
