With the economy where it's at, it can sometimes be hard to afford new learning materies. Luckily, learning doesn't always have to be expensive.

These books also make for great gift ideas if you know someone who is trying to learn the French language.

Some Useful French Learning Materials

Merde!: The Real French You Were Never Taught at School

Want to impress the locals with your extensive knowledge of the French language? Then why not dazzle them with your superior knowledge of French vulgarities! Okay, so this book isn't only about French swear words, but it is still a great book filled with a lot of everyday French slang. A basic knowledge of French is needed when reading this book, since it doesn't go very indepth with its explainations, but for those of you with some French language experience, it can certainly be a fun way to expand your vocabulary beyond what your French 101 class is going to teach you.

Merde Encore!: More of the Real French You Were Never Taught at School

Like the first book, this one also expects the reader to have at least a basic knowledge of French for complete understanding of the text. But for those of you that liked the first book, there should be enough in the second book to keep you interested. That said, both books are not the same. While the first dealt more with colloquial French, the encore version delves more into the idiomatic vocabulary and phrasing for "politically incorrect" stereotypes, though not always a true representation of the French psyche. Though the book does offer a rather nice illustrated section covering French gestures which I found quite useful.

Cuss Cards, European Edition

What is more fun then playing cards? Playing cards while learning to swear of course! Basically, it's a set of playing cards that list the translations of several english swear words, insults and slang phrases into several European languages, French included (There's also German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and Swedish on each card). Though it's sort of a novelty item, the cards really do give some nice translations and work as both flashcards or playing cards. So have some fun with your friends, while you all learn some French swear words!
