My instructor at the Alliance Francaise 'a native French speaker' recommended this book highly to my class. I'm using it to reinforce and practice what we've learned. Its easy to use and understand, and the comparisons of the differences between English and French are very helpful. A must have for any student of French!

I speak fluent spanish portuguese and german and wanted to learn french. This book was perfect and i was speaking fluently within months. C'est magnifique!

The text is in French but the explanations are in English and the examples though in French are translated into English to help see the differences between the 2 languages so as to avoid anglicisms. Good usage notes ! French phrasal verb forms well explained.

I used this book to crystalise French grammar in my brain. I recommend wholeheartedly. I used it as an independent study in 4th-year secondary school French while my teacher taught 3rd year at the same time. I practised conversation w/the teacher every spare minute of our 5-minute class changes. By my first day of university, I could walk up to the French professors & converse w/out hesitation. Then after 4 quarters of university French, I took & passed a test to enroll in a French university with the natives, in another field of study besides just languages. Go through the book carefully, & it's worth a quintal [look it up, & by the way, looking up things is how you learn French] in gold.
