comment What is a good native french dictionary and grammar book?
The most known are, to me, Larousse and Le petit Robert. So they might be the most appropriate. I don't really know any others though.

comment How to identify a condition (for use of conditionnel présent)?
@AbhimanyuArora You French isn't bad ☺ but if I may correct you, I think you meant: "Merci. Si ça vous convient, répondez en anglais s'il vous plaît. Je peux juste comprendre des phrases courtes et simples pour le moment.". He said that "si" is only followed by a conditional if the sentence is in the past (à l'imparfait), when it isn't (like here) we either use a future or a present (but a present, which actually means a future). (Well, he said this more or less, I hope the translation is right)

comment French word for female cat?
@chilladx Aha, this word is rarely used to mean gently kiss, it's a bit "old fashioned", but also understood by pretty much everyone still.

comment French word for female cat?
@foxyfennec now* (correction for my first answer). Aha, that's a tough question, I should think about it. The first one that I think of might be the french word for tail which is "queue" which means the male sex (that's very nasty) (but it's usually less weird when used than "chatte") or perhaps some other metaphoric words like for instance "mes boules" (my balls) (I think the prob is obvious even in English there). I'll tell ya if I think about other stuff.

comment French word for female cat?
AFAIK it's more a "modern" thing than anything else. Pretty much everyone knows what it means (excluding our older grandparents perhaps). Interesting fact: In the past, one of the word used to designate a pussy was "un con" which know hasn't the same meaning at all (that's a rude way to say to someone that he's an complete idiot :p more or less).

comment Expression idiomatique — bon appétit pour les boissons
Je n'ai jamais vraiment compris pourquoi certains trouveraient encore cela impoli de nos jours … Sinon, en complément je dirais que "S'il vous plait" serait également approprié si non plus commun.

comment Quand dire « Bonjour » et quand dire « Bonsoir » ?
@Knu Ce que je sais c'est que les Belges disent respectivement déjeuner, diner et souper pour les 3 repas majeurs de la journée là où les Français disent petit-déjeuner, déjeuner et diner.
