About the Author:

Clare Jones was born in the North of England in 1960. She fell in love with the French language at the age of 11 and went on to study it to degree level at Leicester University, where she also became a qualified teacher. In 2011 Clare collaborated with Tamsin Edwards to produce an iPhone application, “Figure out French, Rouler un patin: to give a French kiss and other French expressions for leisure and health”. Though she now lives in England, Clare always has her nose in a French book and she surrounds herself by all things French. She is currently very busy teaching French as a private tutor and when she finds time, she writes a blog on the subject of the French language. She is very active on Twitter. Clare enjoys swimming, tai-chi and cycling in the local country park.

Review:

French expressions and idioms can be very puzzling for anyone learning French. Why on earth do we have a full load on our back when we are fed up? And why do we have a glass in our nose when we are drunk? ? With more than 200 expressions covering a wide range of areas and wonderful illustrations, “Je mourrai moins bête” is a great way to learn more about the quirky French way of seeing the world. You will get the expression, the equivalent in English, an explanation of its origin and to top it all regular quizzes to test your knowledge! Perfect! Written in a witty and very engaging way, this book will make you laugh and learn at the same time. Students of French will love it and French students of English will also find the translations very useful. After all, you don’t want to be stared at when you gleefully talk about “making the bridge” during a bank holiday week-end or “to be in the cabbages” when you are sad after failing something, do you? ? Ariane Bogain, Senior Lecturer in Languages, Northumbria University

Timothy L. Wilkerson, Associate Professor of Languages, Wittenberg University, Ohio: I must say, I just love this little book and enjoy very much your cheerful spirit of inquiry and your generosity in sharing this amazing accumulation of information!
