This has to be the best, or perhaps one of, revision books on the French language. As an O-level standard + a short course in Paris many years ago, this is proving an excellent tool for me to seriously revise, learn anew and practise. I recommend it highly.

A pleasant surprise to find a book so well laid out, with short chapters and plenty of exercises. The book allows you have a useful and comprehensive grasp of French. It's slightly old-fashioned approach is wonderful for revision, is non-threatening and it's use of recordings, translation etc is comprehensive. Provides a great base for the development of the language.

I have used this book in various editions for 20 years to teach children and adults the rudiments of French grammar.
The short 'stories' and exercises are cleverly constructed and somehow manage to impart information without students realizing how much they are learning whilst having fun! Highly recommended.
