Fun way of learning/remembering words
on 4 April 2010
I learnt French at school quite a few years ago (more than I wish to remember) and used to be reasonably fluent but have since had little or no opportunity to use it and have mostly forgotten what I learnt. For me this was a great way of remembering some of those words I learnt and learning some new ones. Although this book obviously does not help anyone who does not know French at all or wants to learn the grammar I think it's a great addition to other learning tools, a good way of learning/relearning words. The puzzles start off simple, with English clues which you could, if necessary, look up in any simple dictionary and get harder as the book progresses with clues in French but many words used over and over again, so after a couple of times of the same or similar clues appearing the words stick in your mind and you remember them or they fall into place when you have sufficient letters available from other clues. Due to time constraints I haven't quite managed to complete the lot but looking forward to it. It's a fun way of learning additional words.
