2.0 out of 5 stars Hmm, mixed feelings 23 Feb 2007
This book held all the vocabulary I needed for A level, but :

Since moving to France, I have found that the content is very outmoded, or plain wrong. Expressions are out of context, or mistranslated, and it can't be relied up on if you plan to use French in the real world.

This is an excellent book. As an A-level student I have read and found it very informative. If you're not a student but want to learn French it is also good, however you should have a basic knowledge of French for this book to make sense. It has high level phrases and idioms which are acceptable in school exams and used by the French. the book will easily assist you in becoming a true Francophone. An all round excellent educative book, and that in being it's strongest point is also it's weakest. Do not use this book if you don't have a decent knowledge of French, the chances are you may drown, other than that the book is definitely worth a four out of five.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential! 20 May 2004
By A Customer
Having used Palabra por Palabra and Mot a Mot at A-Level I made sure I got a copy for myself to take to uniersity - I now own the German version Wort fur Wort too! The vocab is linked by theme, ideal for essay writing, conversation or interpreting preparation. I find the chapter with all those essential essay expressions is used in all my written assignments!

4.0 out of 5 stars close but no cigar... 29 Oct 2003
By A Customer
The only problem with Mot a Mot is that it really is an ADVANCED guide to french vocabulary. The vocab is aimed at university students, or those working at a standard higher than AS/A level since only a preportion of the words fit into the AS/A level syllabus.
So, if you are a uni student or just generally at a high standard in french, then i would definately recommend this book. Otherwise, i would go for something aimed at a AS/A level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential student vocab book 11 April 2005
By dhbooks
This should be a set text for all French AS/A level students - it covers vocab by topic, meaning that you can look up/learn vocab as you go through the topics in the syllabus, and it also has a handy section at the front with phrases for use in essays or spoken work.
This version also has links to websites at the end of topics, which means you can check out articles relating to the topic straight after having learnt the vocab.
I would recommend this to anyone studying AS/A level French and above - the sort of vocab it gives often pops up in listening exercises and reading comprehensions, especially since they have synonym sections now.
Bonne chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mot à Mot - Mot au succès! 21 Jun 2003
I bought this book 18 months ago after commencing an A-Level in French, and as I progressed through the syllabic topics I found the lists of vocabulary to be extremely comprehensive, up-to-date and pertinent. They proved to be extremely useful all around, for discursive writing, oral activities, class discussions and reading activities; and knowing even just a selection of the words from each section of the book helped to boost my general confidence in French phenomenonly, not to mention my marks, immensely helping me attain such high grades.
The initial section of essay phrases was absolutely indispensible for writing tasks and in preparation for my A2 oral, in which I wouldn't have been able to debate so intensely against the strong, forceful arguments and stances with which I was faced without the help of this book.
You can't possibly go wrong by buying this book. It's very reasonably priced and is small and portable enough to be carried everywhere, whether for vocabulary revision or for communicating with French people. It is ideal for any A-Level French syllabus and will not let you down!
