Editorial Reviews

“Simplifying French grammar in 100 pages while trying to explain it as concisely and precisely as possible is quite a daunting task. I congratulate the authors!” - Prof. Lynne Stewart, U Regina, Saskatchewan   “97% of grammar is straightforward and this book shows that this is so. With this 97% known and understood perfectly, a student would be extremely well equipped to do something mature with the French language.” - Michael Bishop, Dalhousie University
