      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.


      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    This book is just so much fun if one wants to explore a different language. The exaples and the over process is interesting and fun to follow. French as a language is so similair to hindi and i strongly suggest that everyone read this book.

    Good for Beginners

    I love that the pronunciations are written phonetically. Good for people who are not great with grammar rules. It has lots of content, very helpful for pronunciation. I would definitely recommend for beginners, a good place to start.

    A really good book

    This book is honestly really good and the concepts are rather easy to grasp. But Ive done the basics of French as a child so it was easy for. But for the completely blank slates Im assuming the book should do wonders. Either way its a good book :) It goes over all concepts and the CD is definitely amazing!

    Excellent book - Just superb

    I was just finding this type of book. The CD provided is also superb. But the most important and the most helpful thing is the French pronunciation written in english. This is the best part of the book. Believe me, I was the best student in my earlier French learning class and take it from me that without the pronunciation, you will not be able to learn it. So just go for this book blindly. And the price is unbelievably reasonable. Thank you "French For Dummies'".

    Good Book

    Very good book for beginners. An audio CD is provided along with the book to help enhance the listening skills. But the CD I got wasn't a good one. 2 tracks viz. Track no. 18 & 19 didn't play well. The audio wasn't clear. And there was a hole in Page 75 of the book.
