Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big help and fun too I've known some French since I was a kid, and would rate my ability as intermediate, limited mainly by timidity. I was recently involved in a business situation that required extensive correspondence involving commercial, real estate, and banking terms, as well as internet communication. After relying on a 75-year-old Cassell's for a while, I decided that I needed something more up-to-date. I wanted access to modern terminology and idioms, so that I wouldn't sound like a Victorian textbook. All the reviews of this book were so favorable that I looked no further. In sum, I can find just about every expression I need--the context notes are extremely helpful--and the modern-day terminology is very complete. It's great to be able to look up, for example, "ISP" (literally, "electronic garden gate") or "spam" (literally, "little rotten things") and know that I'm using the right verbiage. Yeah, it's way too big to take on a trip. But for anything else, it's tops.
