Thousands of the most essential French slang and idioms
Understand "real" French
If you simply stick to the formal vocabulary you are taught in your French course, you will have a hard time understanding native speakers. This audiobook will help you to progress in everyday French - the kind you can hear on the street, in movies, and on the radio.
Impress your French-speaking friends
Get a more intensive conversational level that rises above the banal by using some well-chosen slang. Your friends will be impressed by your level of French and will consequently speak to you in a more natural way.
A fun book in itself
This book contains some curse words and interesting expressions used by the French. I am sure you will have a good laugh while learning some of them.
Continually up-to-date slang
Slang is ever-evolving, and terms can grow outdated quickly. The main book has selected the most consistent terms you can hear throughout the years, but, as a bonus, I have created a list of contemporary French terms. This short audiobook (around 200 slang expressions) gets regularly updated with new expressions that appear in media (for example,on YouTube).
New! Never misuse slang again
I also annotate slang words when they are offensive and/or very common. So you will know when you should use them or not.
The most complete French slang audiobook available
Most books available contain only around 400-500 French slang expressions. This audiobook offers more than 1,400.

The subtitle 'Learn how to speak French like a native' is misleading, this is just somebody mumbling through a list of random vocabulary as if they were in a hurry to get finished. There is no structure, no explanation of usage, the vocabulary isn't grouped into related words or phrases to aid learning and there isn't even a pause to allow the listener to repeat the phrase.
I'm trying to think of a positive to end on but all I can come up with is, perhaps it gets better further on. I wouldn't know because I didn't make it to the end.
