A must have workbook in conjunction with the answer book
on April 11, 2014
I bought this book after I found I was struggling using my North American written textbook while being taught by a Parisian professor. He recommended this book. If you are in an intermediate level course, you will find that this book makes so much more sense than an English text book. It is a French book written by a francophone. At the intermediate level you will find that the French within this workbook is easy enough to understand and so many "rules" will make so much more sense as you are already thinking in French to some extent.
After I purchased this book, I did an intensive review based on the course outline during a period of two weeks and my marks jumped 20% from mid term to final mark. My recommendation is to buy this book and use it, but of course, don't abandon the homework that was assigned or anything that is listed on the course outline as you will still be graded on those--let your good grammar show through those assignments.
I will be using this book to do a refresher before beginning a more advanced course next month as I skipped a semester. It will be useful for that purpose as well.
