This practical French grammar book is the result of 16 years of teaching on Skype or Zoom to adults and young students located all over the world. I believe that French grammar should not been a stumbling block to learning the language and should not discourage learners of French to embrace the beautiful journey of becoming fluent. Hence, I felt that it was important to explain the grammar rules in English and in the simplest way possible without including too much grammar jargon, so that a beginner could grasp the essential elements of grammar to build sentences. Every grammar point is followed with exercises to practice what has been taught. The answers are included in the back of the book (except for the answers that are open ended questions).
The first edition of this book was published in 2011. It was very well received both by the students and the teachers who found it very useful and clear. This is the fourth edition in which we added 11 more advanced grammar points such as pronoms relatifs, connecteurs logiques, subjonctif, etc, and 60 more exercises. The examples and the exercises are always revised to the most updated everyday language.
This grammar book is aimed for A1 level students (total beginners) to B1 level (intermediate level). Perfect for self-study, but also ideal for supplementary grammar activities in the classroom. Step by step with a teacher or on their own, French learners can learn to construct their sentences and gain plenty of practice.
This French grammar book is available in two different formats: a paperback version, and an eBook version (pdf). With the purchase of the paperback, you can download the eBook for free.
