All the explanations follow a simple two-step approach: basic rules, where forms and examples are presented in a simple and accessible way before learners move on to more complex uses and forms of the same items.Throughout there are examples of everyday language to show grammar being used naturally, and these are paired with translations to illustrate how the two languages coincide or differ. Numerous cross-references highlight related grammatical points.The book also contains a glossary of grammatical terms, guidance on pronunciation and spelling, a reference section with verb tables and an exercise key. There is a wealth of practice and extension tasks designed to complement the grammar, test your knowledge and help you consolidate what you have learned. The book is ideal for learners wishing to study French grammar systematically, as well as those who are looking to practice their grammar skills at a deeper level.
