A brilliant way to brush up on your French
on 29 March 2004
Before buying this book, I found it very helpful to buy French comic books such as "Boule et Bill" to aid in my learning of French as it made the reading enjoyable and light-hearted, and the pictures really helped me to guess the meaning of the French text. However, I still had to have my dictionary and verb book by my side in case I came across some vocab that I did not know. This book from OUP, saves the trouble of having the dictionary and verb book as all the key phrases and verbs are on the opposite page... Great.. now I can read them on the train during my commute without having to go through the embarressment of pulling out my heavy dictionary because of my poor memory! My only disappointment is that they have not published more of these books. Please publish more... P.s. Even better would be to include a audio cassete/CD so that I can get the pronounciation correct.
