Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a returner to studying French after some 40 years and having forgotten so much, I have found this book most helpful in beginning to plug the many gaps in knowledge. On Laura's web site (About.com French - which I highly recommend) the style is very relaxed and covers simply those little things that can make the French language so tricky. This book just follows on from that approach.

It is clearly and logically written and the explanations of the grammar points are easy to understand. There is plenty of opportunity to practise new knowledge. There are useful exercises that immediately follow each point rather than being left until the end of the chapter, by which time you may well have had to take in a lot of conflicting information. The book also keeps these exercises simple so that you can focus on the main points you are trying to learn. I found both these particularly helpful.

All in all - a very useful addition to my (growing)library of French books.

Despite the title, this is not a book for dummies but for those whose command of French is already quite good. Very good coverage of verb tenses and explanation of usage, with lots of well designed exercises to help you understand.
