4.0 out of 5 stars Solid introduction to the mysteries of French Verbs April 24 2003
If you're trying to teach yourself French, you may find the numerous verb tenses intimidating. This book will help you to overcome many of those fears. While the French use verbs in a more complex way than we Anglophones, they generally do so in a logical and orderly fashion. Once you've learned the future tense or the conditional tense, for instance, you'll find that it applies to most verbs.
De Sales helps you to understand those basic building blocks; the lessons are clear and basic, and if you follow them you will be well on your way to mastering French. The only nit I might pick is this: perhaps he could give the definition of a verb *before* using it in a sentence. There are cases when he will ask for a conjugation of a verb that has not yet been introduced... or a translation. You will definitely need another text or two along with this one... but if you use this you'll find the Mystery of French Verb Conjugation to be much less mysterious.

5.0 out of 5 stars You want this book! June 5 1999
By A Customer
This terrific (and bargain priced) book gets my vote for Best Supplemental French Text. It's an invaluable aid for current students and anyone wanting to brush up on their French.
Once you "get" French verbs, you're 90% of the way towards fluency. This book clearly and systematically explains how the French verb system works, providing numerous and varied exercises to practice each point.
There are also countless mastery and review exercises throughout.
Just a fabulous text -- very logically put together and very thorough. It has helped my understanding and mastery of French to increase by leaps and bounds.
