Every language has a basic vocabulary of similar words and expressions. Adrienne's acclaimed "Gimmick" approach offers both the beginner and the seasoned traveler a fast and effective route to this lexicon by teaching language as it is actually spoken.

Adrienne's vocabulary lists are contemporary, practical, and uncensored-you'll find words here that aren't in any other language book-and they group together families of words, which makes expanding your vocabulary painless. For the more advanced student, access to the Gimmick's expansive array of colloquial expressions will add an impossible-to-fake native fluency. Whether you're trying to learn the rudiments ("My name is Steve"), travel with globe-trotting panache ("The Louvre has many paintings by Monet"), or get out of a prickly situation ("May I call my lawyer?"), Adrienne and the Gimmick will show you the way.
