Reviews - What do customers think about Grammaire Française?
C'est un bon livre! Sep 13, 2007
I'm using this book in my advanced French grammar class. The book is very thorough and contains so much information that I never knew. For example, I never knew there was a way of determining the gender of French nouns. I always memorized them The only thing I don't like about this book is its illogical order of lessons. In fact, our teacher is skipping around the book to teach us the grammar in a more focused, logical manner.
Excellent for intermediate to advanced students Aug 12, 2002
This book cleared up a lot of lingering questions that I had, and does a good job of focussing on and clarifying troublesome topics. It's done in a way that allows for self-study, which is how I used it. One thing I liked about it is that it doesn't try to be cute and amusing like many language textbooks do in order to keep your attention, while often forgetting to include good information. Instead, Ollivier gets right down to the question at hand which is studying grammar and vocab, and the fact that she does it in a thorough and organized way is what kept me involved. She also does it almost entirely in French. The only reason why I might have taken off a star is that I would have liked to have more exercises with corrections, but I believe that most of the exercises are intended as homework assignments for class, and I made do. In short, if you're serious about learning French and aren't put off by explanations about grammar, then this is an excellent book.

Absolutely the best tool for studying French for students who already have some background. Detailed, comprehensive explanations followed by examples. This book made me fluent. Marvelous!
