The Bonjour Effect

The Secret Codes of French Conversation Revealed

Jean-Benoit Nadeau, Julie Barlow

Beginning with the importance of saying ‘Bonjour’, Julie Barlow and Jen-Benoît Nadeau explore the conventions that underpin the art of conversation in France. From the acceptability of starting a conversation with an argument to the faux pas of mentioning money, they demonstrate that speaking is considered a way to prove oneself interesting, more than a means of communication, and give insights into the French culture and mindset.
