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!

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!

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.

I am a serious francophile and am preparing to live in France for a few months with my wife. I have been reading extensively in preparation for our trip. A reasonable understanding of french verbs will be critical if I am to communicate effectively with the people of France. I have used and become quite familiar with the following verb books: "501 French Verbs" and the "Blue book of 555 French Verbs". First of all let me say that both are fine books. I will say that the explanations about what the different tenses and moods actually mean are better in the "555" than "501". In terms of the physical size of the books I would say that they are BIG ("501") and BIGGER ("555"). "501" lists an additional 1500 or so verbs and "555" lists an additional 2500.

I have recently finished reading the french version of "Bescherelle - 12000 verbs". I needed to look up a few words in the grammar section in order to fully grasp the ideas. My understanding of the tenses and moods increased exponentially. The writing style was highly lucid and direct. Just the grammar section alone was worth the cost of the book for me and well worth the effort to translate it fully on my own. The conjugation tables, as alluded to in other fine reviews, simply blow the competition away. The brilliant (literally and figuratively) verb charts are a masterpiece of organization and memory enhancing devices. The verb charts alone are worth twice the cost of the book. Finally, there is the index of ALL 12000 VERBS IN THE ENTIRE FRENCH LANGUAGE. This is far more than in "501" or "555". Incredibly, "Bescherelle" packs this punch into a book a tiny fraction of the size of the competition. This book should be on the shelf of EVERY student of the french language be they a beginner or hard-core linguistic master.
