A Curate's Egg
on 17 May 2011
When I started using this as a workbook, attempting to regain the standard I had attained doing A-level French, I found the layout very clear and concise, allowing use both as a tutorial and as a grammar reference book.
However, I have started to find a few mistakes and contradictions in it. Of course, the vast majority of the details given are correct, but when I regularly find the answer to an exercise contradicts the grammatical example given on the previous page, I begin to lose confidence in the book!
Unfortunately the knock-on effect is that, each time my answer to an exercise differs from the one given and I cannot immediately understand why, then I begin to wonder if it's another error.
Iron out the bugs and this would be a really good grammar book. May I offer my services as proof-reader...?
