4.0 out of 5 stars 3 in 1 1 Sep 2009
I have bought the majority of the other books in the Easy French range over the last year. I can say with some confidence that this book is the happy union of Easy French Verbs, Easy French Words, and Easy French Grammar. Given that each of these books lists at 6.99, this combined book is a bargain.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Useful 2 Oct 2010
By JW
I bought this dictionary for A-level French and so far it's helped a lot. The three sections make it easy to find what you need: Grammar, Verbs and Vocabulary. If you have this book and a normal dictionary its makes French so much easier. I would recommend for anyone doing GCSE or A-level

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect book for beginners. 27 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a perfect book for beginners. I started purchasing this book before I started my first French lesson. The book gives the detail understanding that is essential in French such as Articles, Nouns and Adjectives. But the most important and I would regard the salient feature of this book is the Verb chapter which is marked with light blue pages (in the middle part of the book). This is because in French, the 6 subject pronouns (I (je), you (tu), we (nous), he/she (ill/elle), they (ills/elles/) and vous (you-polite)) have different types of describing what the verb should be. Thus, the beginners will understand better what verb to put after the subject pronoun. On top of that, the verb chapter also covers other tenses such as past tense, perfect tense, conditional tense and future tense. Highly recommended for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price and product 11 Sep 2012
At this price, this book by Collins is a bargain.

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.

I bought the book as I have returned to learning French with classes at an lower intermediate level but needed to revise over the many French tenses and verb endings. This was an excellent buy and highly recommended as it's clear, easy to understand and is an excellent book to accompany lessons in French for additional revision or self study. The areas the book covers grammar, vocab and verbs are key foundations that everyone must have a decent understanding of to become fluent and I must say this book as really increased my ability to put sentences together in past, present and future tense = ability to hold a conversation! If your aim to so move from beginners to more intermediate, be able to express yourself in different tenses (and be understood) as well as understanding someone expressing themselves in different tenses, understand key aspects of grammar to increase your spoken,written and reading ability I would recommend this book.
