This review is from: French Grammar 11-14 Pupil Book (Paperback)
This book was exactly what I was looking for to help my 12 year old son who was struggling with French. He was gettling increasingly confused by the whistle-stop approach to teaching French that schools go in for these days (one lesson on the present tense!!!) and was literally floundering. This book sets out clearly each part of speech, explaining first how we use it in English and then how it is used in French. (This was particularly useful as I discovered that my son had never been taught any English grammar either so didn't even know what a verb was.) The book is split into sections e.g. nouns, pronouns, definite and indefinite articles, verbs etc. and uses simple exercises to practise every aspect of the part of speech in a step-by-step approach. It may not be wildly exciting for the child but it is exactly what is needed to help a child get to grips with the nuts and bolts of a language. The trouble with the way they teach languages in school these days is that it is a very pick 'n mix, French phrase book approach which will only work for those children who have a natural gift for picking up languages. It may be 'more fun' but it leaves children like my son unsure how to string a sentence together when required to do so.
