All the language books I've come across are designed for tourists. Does anyone know of one for residents, with vocab. and phrases covering household situations? We've had wet-rot in a floor, problems with central heating and computer, etc., when you really do need to get it right, not to mention returning things to shops...

We bought an English/French Dictionary of Building, Property and Gardening by J Kater Pollock and Lynne Forbes.

It covers building and property in general, buildings & material, electrical, kitchen, paint, plumbing, timber, tools and proffesions and in gardening in general, bushes and shrubs, climbing plants, equipement, flowering plants, herbs, trees, vegetables and fruit. It is printed by Flowerpoll, 2 Kenwood Gardens, Linton, Cambridgeshire CB1 6UR and the ISBN number is 0 9521027 0 6

Our French electrican asked for a copy as he thought it was brilliant and it costs about £6.95 avilable from the publisher only.
