Format: Paperback
Like Eliane Kurbegov's Vocabulary book in this same series, the book is poorly organized and not likely to be useful to anyone.

For intermediate learners, there is very little generalized information about the french language that would help one improve their knowledge. Rather, there are a series of poorly introduced exercises, which the user will not be able to complete without prior knowledge of the language.

Beginners would simply be bewildered by this book.

Instead, I recommend Complete French Grammar by Anne Hathaway -- an excellent introduction to french or refresher for someone who speaks a bit of french.

Geard towards more advanced French students April 6 2011
By Sandro Munoz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This series of books is great for those wanting to tune up their existing French. This book assumes you've taken French for a while and it doesn't dumb things down. This is grammar and French grammar is notoriously difficult. This book is not recommend for those wanting to brush up on their rusty French before going on a trip to Paris. That said, as someone who studied French all through high school, this book is great for improving the French I already know.

just confusing June 7 2012
By K. Pierce - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a "medium beginner" with French, and I am usually able to comprehend most of the ins and outs of the way sentences are structured. This book, within the first few pages, throws amazingly complicated sentences at you, and really without benefit of explanation as to WHY the sentences are structured in such a way. When being taught to structure a sentence, I believe that I should be given a breakdown of it and an explanation as to why a certain word must be put before or after, why some words are left out, and exactly what n'en MEANS!! They also use a lot of conjugations that really a much more advanced student would be more familiar with. I find it absurd that this is offered as a tool to teach students how to structure sentences when they don't really TEACH you, they expect you to already know all the rules. I made it to page 10 and after getting every single sentence wrong, I decided to put it away until I have already learned how to do it and then just come back to it and use it for practice. I have several other books that I have found very helpful, such as Barron's French Verb Workbook and The Ultimate French Review and Practice, and Practice Makes Perfect Complete French Grammar. But this book is just plain torture for anyone who isn't very familiar with the language already.

The Missing Reference Dec 15 2011
By Thomas Curry - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent learning aid! This forces the reader (gently, of course) into integrating all the various parts of the language into something you can use. It is well-written, with many clear examples that actually reinforce that lesson's topics. I don't necessarily suggest this for beginners, but would for those trying to improve their writing and speaking skills. It is well worth the investment.

Great Refresher/Skills builder June 1 2011
By Leo Babic - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this a great was way to stay fresh in between semesters or just to brush up on skills post graduation. We all paid a lot to learn French, why lose it because you do not use it. My only recommendation is if you could get an audio guide to help learn proper pronunciation and intonations.

Practice makes perfect French sentence builder April 2 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In Kindle form you can't increase the font size of the examples, so they stay minute and almost unreadable. Don't buy unless they can sort out this problem.
