74 of 74 people found the following review helpful By M. McManus VINE VOICE on 12 Feb. 2008
Format: Paperback
I bought this book whilst living in a French speaking country and working at a European Union institution, for both of which knowledge of French was essential. I was instantly impressed with its quality, and its no nonsense approach to French. Far from more "all round" courses which aim to make learning pleasant, this book presupposes a level of interest and commitment that means there are no pictures or cultural notes. Just the language itself.

The book has a common format. A brief and direct introduction to the verb tense being explored, followed by LOTS of example exercises, where our knowledge of the verb tense just taught is tested to destruction point. All of the major tenses are covered, including rarer tenses that only tend to crop up in historical and technical usage of French. The book is a must have for anyone who is truly serious about improving their French for professional and personal purposes. The price is also extremely good in terms of "price-paid-to-skills-gained" ratio, so I cannot recommend this highly enough to the serious student. Students with a more casual interest in French may find it is not for them.

This book gives a brief overview of each verb tense and then is packed to the rafters with question after question - exactly what you need to master this essential part of any language. Verbs which change their spelling and irregular verbs are handled after the regular verbs and special consideration is made of the most important two verbs, etre and avoir. This book is such good value and does its job so well it is a shame they don't do several such books per language. One obvious tip is use a pencil - you will want to do these drills over and over again.

A really excellent book for serious French study with good clear explanations of the intracacies of French verbs and conjugation. If you are prepared to put in the study time, this book will take you a long way.

I used this for my AS and A2 levels. it is a fantastic book, with every rule/example you need in a simple way but still telling you everything you need. there are exercises and answers every step of the way, and as you get better the book advances with you, with harder sentence structures etc, as you want to improve. really recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am currently learning french and this book of all the books that I have really zones in on constructing sentences. You can learn a lot by forming your basic french around these verbs - in present, past and future tenses - it's all there. I found it easy to understand and it makes you practice again and again - great!

I have used these books before, so I knew what to expect. Very useful to reinforce verb skills; this book is not for initial learning and a level of understanding of verbs and tenses is really necessary before this book would be appropriate.
