I've just started living in France and so use this on the train to work every morning, as it was recommended by a friend who herself learnt using these books (but not only these books, theyre a supplement but I imagine impossible for learning completely). The books use no other language but French even for instructions which I think's helpful because it forces you to think this way and it extends your vocabulary, but I would have liked to have known that corrections (corrigés) must be bought separately. It's good practice but unless you know if anything you're doing is right you might very well just be getting well practised at the wrong thing. I've ordered the corrections/answers but think it'd be nicer if you could purchase the two as a pack (I understand one book would be pretty thick and not practical).

I love this book. My French tutor uses it as one of her learning tools. It has helped me to talk and write French. It guides you through French grammar, starting at the very simple and leading you to more complex ideas. It is all in French so encourages you to learn and think in French.

Overall this is a great purchase but of course you have to do the work. Great for polishing your rusty French.

I find that the spaces to fill in the answers are far too small so I use a separate jotter. I've ordered the answers book - I prefer it being separate, that makes it much easier to refer to.

The book has soft covers but is bound in signatures the good old fashioned way, so you can open it flat without the pages falling out - that's worth the higher price.

Was suggested by my french tutor.
First thing to note, i would not suggest it for self-study! Firstly, i did not like the structure, and found it much more useful to search the web and go through other resources. Secondly, i did not have the answer booklet and found it very disturbing the fact that i have to order it separately. Rules are not very well explained, not all the exceptions from the rules are provided.
It is great to use this book in conjunction with tuition. Allows u and your tutor to check your progress each time you meet by allowing him to check how well you have performed in the exercises.
Exercises are of different levels of difficulty which i also found very useful.
Overall, good book for class work or tuition. Not great for self study, thats why only 3 stars

If you are looking for a french grammar with step by step units and exercises covering all the fundamentals then this is THE BOOK. I liked the fact that grammar explanations are provided on the left pages whereas the exercises are given on the right ones. You can immediately do exercises and put into use what you have just learned. I recommend you work out all the exercises from cover to cover, because the book will take you gradually from the elementary concepts to the more difficult ones. Together with the book of answers, it is an ideal grammar for self study.

These books provide good practise when learning French. I believe they use them in the French schools too according to my french friend. The corrections books provide the answers as well so are probably useful to buy as well. Now I just need to find the time to work through them !

I was looking for a French grammar written in French and this fits the bill completely. It can be used by reading from page 1 through to the end or by selecting particular grammar features from the index. The range of examples makes comprehension very easy and the vocabulary is at the right level for someone who is at the intermediate level of learning French. This will be a constant companion during the time that I am improving my French written and conversational skills.

This is the French grammar book recommended for my intermediate evening class. Very clearly set out and easy to read, with explanations followed by exercises in each section. Lots of small sections rather than a few large chapters - I prefer this small sections format. One point to note - there are several editions on sale so if you are in a class or group, make sure everyone buys the same edition, as there are some page and content changes between editions.
