Product Description


"This excellent book strikes a very good balance between exhaustivity and accessibility. Clear, lively, and engaging." - Christophe Gagne, Cambridge University, UK

"French Grammar in Context provides an indispensable, much needed integration of comprehensive grammar review with authentic language, a combination that both teachers and students can appreciate." - Lorie Heggie, Illinois State Universty, USA

"Drawing from authentic texts ― both literary and journalistic sources, which have been updated for this fourth edition ― makes the book engaging and gives the learner an opportunity to discover, or maybe rediscover, authors such as Camus, Queneau, Pre´vert, Stendhal, or Zola, among many others, through the lens of grammar...The texts and explanations are usefully supplemented by spoken and written exercises, with answers provided at the back, which will enable the student to build up knowledge and gain more confidence in handling the structures covered." - Michael Abecassis, University of Oxford, UK

"French Grammar in Context has a wealth of motivating texts and clear explanations of the main points of French grammar. It is well suited for independent practice and review, but also could be included in intermediate and advanced classes as a companion text or jumping off point if instructors supplement the book with more open-ended activities and contextual information about the authentic texts themselves." - Katie Beth Angus, University of Southern Mississippi, The LINGUIST List

By Arielle Truth - Published on
Format: Paperback
I like this book because it teaches me concepts about the French language I've never learned before. It gives a good explanation of grammar and examples. I like the stories, poems, or articles that illustrate the grammar point being taught. Some of them have difficult vocabulary for A/A2 students or self learner, but you can use a dictionary for the most difficult words and phrases. It would make a great book for B2 learners of French, but if the authors made it a little easier, it would be great format for A/A2 students also. There are exercises, fill in the blanks, translations exercises and oral exercises for each unit covered, which include all the tenses, nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, etc. The answers are in the back.
