5.0 out of 5 stars Returning to French, 31 July 2002
This review is from: Colloquial French: A Complete Language Course (Colloquial Series) (Hardcover)
This book is excellent. I have recently returned to learning French after a seven year break. I have read a number of instant/introductory French books lately and this is the best of them.
It not only covers the basics in being able to understand and to be understood (like most instant french books), but also deals with some of the more challenging grammar later on.
The balance between tackling enough new material to maintain progress but not becoming confused is about right.
The chapters are sensible in their grouping and choice, and with each new chapter there is a new verb(s) and grammar.
There are passages in french followed immediately by the exact english translation. Vocabulary is no problem since there is a list at the back of the book.
Another advantages to the book are the exercerises, that pleasingly have the accompanying answers at the back of the book. This relieves the uncertainty in completeing excersise to which you have no answers.
A well rounded interesting book.
