    The BEST French Review book

    I've studied French for nearly 7 years now in both high school, college and through the military. This book brings you back to the basics, but takes your farther into the complex parts of the language. I maintain my fluency using this book as my review!

    If you study French, you need this book

    This book is amazing. It is thorough, easy to understand, and provides extras beyond any other resource I've found. I especially love the expressions found throughout the book and the section on idioms and proverbs, which even includes the conversation fillers we use every day. Le francais, c'est du gateaux!

    An Excellent Resource

    This is an excellent resource book. It is divided into five parts - Verbs, Nouns and their modifiers, Other Elements of a Sentence, Verbs in two-clause sentences, and Idiomatic language. There are many Cultural Notes dispersed throughout the book. Rules are given - when to use and when not to use - and then there are exercises for you to practice the skill. The best part is that the answers are in the back of the book - instant feedback!

    great for students

    I studied French in high school for four years. After two years away from the language, I have renewed my studies in college and I have found this book to be helpful in recovering the solid grasp of the language I once had.
