This book is a must have for anyone seeking to learn French!
John Dailey
Incredibly, "Bescherelle" packs this punch into a book a tiny fraction of the size of the competition.

The Bescherelle is the must-have French verb conjugation book.

I cannot say enough about Bescherelle: La Conjugaison pour tous. This wonderful little book is INVALUABLE. It is the ONLY reference you will ever need to learn how to conjugate all 12,000 verbs of the French language.
The first part of the book are the Tables of Conjugations, which show by examples all 85 unique forms of conjugated verbs in all the tenses and moods -- these include all the irregular verbs as well as those verbs which vary slightly from the regular forms. In the back of the book is an alphabetical listing of the 12,000 verbs, each with a reference to which of the 85 forms they follow when conjugated. Anywhere where the conjugation is irregular or the stem has changed (for example, the accent is changed), or there are differences in certain persons (e.g. the nous and vous persons), these warnings are printed in red to call the reader's attention to them. Bescherelle takes the extra step of listing as an individual form for certain verbs which may cause doubt. For example, take the verb "apprecier" (accent accute on the first e), which has its own page listing instead of under "aimer". This verb is in fact a regular -er verb and can be conjugated just like "aimer". However, because of the "i" in the stem before the "er", the student may be confused or even forget to keep the "i" when adding an ending such as "ions" in the imperfect tense. Therefore, in the conjugation "nous appreciions", the double ii's are printed in RED to call our attention to them. This is just one of the many things I love about this book.
Additionally, Bescherelle is beautifully typeset in color and is visually pleasing.

Indispensable. It's THE reference for verbs and verbal grammar. I much prefer it to "501 Verbs" because (1) it concisely provides each unique conjugation pattern once and only once (which makes it easier to learn the pattern), and (2) irregular forms are highlighted in red.
If you haven't finished at least one year of college French (maybe two) I'd suggest that you start with the English version. There's a tremendous amount of information in the grammer section that you really won't understand well until you speak pretty decent French. What I'd really like to suggest is that you buy both versions, Use the English book until you are comfortable with the one in French and then pass it on to some budding Francophile. Bonne chance!

Format: Hardcover
The Bescherelle is the must-have French verb conjugation book. It is used by French schoolkids so I was surprised when I saw that my French school in Paris used it for its (foreign) students. However, it is really the best verb conjugation book out there. It does not have the flip-to convenience of 501 French verbs, but once you get the hang of it (find your verb in the back, then flip to page with conjugation of "model" verb belonging to same family), it will become 2nd nature. At first I thought that this was a disadvantage; since you are looking at the conjugation of a model verb and not of the verb itself (unless it's the model verb whose conjugation you're looking for), you miss the visual component of memorization that you get with 501 FV, which has the full conjugation of each of its verbs. Since, I have found that this is an ADVANTAGE. Memorizing the conjugation of each French verb (the 501 approach) is daunting. Memorizing conjugation by "family," i.e., associating the conjugation of related verbs, is MUCH EASIER. And unlike 501FV, Bescherelle allows you to find the conjugation of every French verb out there! 501 gives you decent coverage, but once you reach an intermediate level of French, you will find more and more verbs that are NOT in 501FV. I bought a variety of French books for study while I was in France, but left most of these behind when I came back to the States, including 501FV... but not the Bescherelle! I take it with me wherever I move, and since it's hardcover, it won't die on me anytime soon neither.

I purchased this book while in France last fall. I also own 501 French verbs, which I love, but this book is great because it helps you conjugate any and all verbs. Plus, it all fits into one neat little volume. It's helpful that the instructions are in French because you learn some good vocabulary as you go along. If you also own Bescherelle La Grammaire and L'orthographe, you have a great French reference selection in a fraction of the space taken up by other books!

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must for serious students of French who want to easily understand the conjugations of regular and irregular French verbs. Bescherelle's is the best I've found. I strongly recommend the French version because it forces you to read French directions instead of a translation.

Bescherelle is by far your best friend while learning the intricacies of the French language. I've studied French at the best immersion program in the country, and they continue to recommend purchasing this book - in French, of course.

Format: Hardcover
This book is EXCELLENT! It was a life-saver when I lived in France and, later on, when my job required me to do a heavy amount of French translation. The book is extremely well organized and, once you get the hang of it, will help you not only to conjugate any French verb in existence, but also will help you understand, at a profound level, how the verbs work and which verbs are like other verbs (which helps you recall their conjugations later). My book got damaged in a flood and I'm buying a new one. Can't say the same about all the other French resources I lost! Word of warning: this book is a French book and is written in French!
