I've found the series to be helpful for an adult who's recovering his knowledge of French from 'O' level days and using it in social conversations on holiday.
The Verbs book/section will be of most use when writing French and the only criticism of that book is that there is no index of the English words listed in the book (just on each page) and the exhaustive list of verbs at the back that follow the same conjugation could do with the English meaning. This would really help me to choose the English verb I want and get straight to a page that helps me find the verb in the right tense and person.
The Words book/section appears useful and I like the way that words are listed under Essential, Important, and Useful categories. Those of us with a photographic memory will like the fact that the words are also split into masculine and feminine (left and right pages).
The Grammar book/section also appears useful. There's a limit to how far learning phrases by rote will take you. Time to get a bit of grammar theory.
There are two other books in the range. Easy French Conversation is in essence a phrase book, and like any phrase book, you can find you've asked a great question but can't understand the response. However, it is good to see 'real French', especially if you are studying alone, and avoid constructing 'pidgin French' phrases.
So, I'd recommend students purchasing this 3-book set and the Easy French Dictionary together.Read more ›
This book contains, in effect, three separate books which are currently on the market: Collins Easy Learning - Collins Easy Learning French Grammar, Collins Easy Learning - Collins Easy Learning French Verbs (Collins Easy Learning Dictionaries) and Collins Easy Learning French Words (Collins Easy Learning).
The book is perfect for a beginner or intermediate French speaker though there is a lack of detail for an expert French learner in the grammar and vocabulary sections.
The grammar section covers the main grammar points in the language. The verb section lists the main verbs, the irregular verbs and usages of these verbs in sample sentences. The final section groups together words by theme (food, drink, travel etc).
As I said, for beginners and intermediate learners, this is an indispensable and cheap tool. The more advanced learner will find less use from this however.
Hobbies etc.) rather than alphabetical order as I was expecting.
Although, A good dictionary for verb conjugation and beginners in French.
