I bought this book to help my teenage granddaughter with her french. But this amazing little book has got me hooked on learning french myself. As a complete beginner I have since purchased Usbourne's French for beginners with CD to help with pronunciation as Easy French does not cover this. What it does for me is to keep the interest going. After just 2 weeks I already understand more about french grammar and recognise some common words and phrases. If I give up now I'll never know how the story ends so must get back to it. Well written, interesting, aimed at the teenage market but suitable for adults. Love it.
