New bonus skill recommendation

I have finished the French tree and see that there is an empty slot for a bonus skill. My recommendation is to add a slang section. I suppose this would be similar to idioms, but less formal. I think that would be quite helpful to prospective travelers.

very true but why would they add something LESS formal?

Even if you don't want to use slang, it's useful to know it, so you're not gulping like a goldfish going "whathesay? whathesay?" when someone else does! For instance, I recently learned to understand the slangy "tu vois ce que je veux dire" (pronounced "tu vois skujveuxdire" - equivalent to ya-know-what-I-mean-like. It's considered a fairly déclassé thing to say, but now I know what people are saying when they say it.
