Format: Paperback
First, this is an excellent French reference book. I took quite a bit of French in school, but needed some in-depth review so I could help my home-schooled daughter with her "passe compose". Perfect book for that... or if you need to review your reflexive verbs, etc. Well laid out... rules are explained in depth, but in very understandable terms.

Unfortunately, though, this book markets itself as a beginner's book. "Learning a language has never been so quick and easy - or so much fun!" the back cover boasts. I love the French language, but this is NOT a "fun" book... it is 98% grammar, 2% practice. You can literally go pages without seeing a sentence in French.

This is a great book, it has everything a person who wants to learn French wants in a book.
Has grammar rules, basic phrases, verbs rules, has lots of tables with vocabulary.
It is also excellent for a person who wants to get a quick refresher of the language.
Highly recommended!

This book is a welcome addition to anyone learning French. It is probably best for one who has had a semester of French, but I have found it to be one of the better review books. I think the layout is good and the additional CD gives a plus to the text. For me, one of the better French language books I have purchased.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dejan K on April 22, 2012
Format: Paperback
Excellent book, but title is misleading: this is not a book for beginners.

Pros:
-Good for those who studied French a while back and need a quick refresher
-Good for those with basic understanding of grammar and grammatical terms/phrases/concepts
-Book explains grammatical concepts well

Cons:
-Bad for those who have never studied French
-While it explains grammatical concepts, the book too much assumes you already know basic English grammar
-Book lacks quantity and quality in exercises/ practice questions

If you have never studied French or English grammar, I do not recommend this book but try instead "Easy French Step By Step: Master High-Frequency Grammar for French Proficiency-Fast!" by Rochester and Bregstein.

30 of 40 people found the following review helpful By Barbara A. Baroody on June 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
The title of this book "The Everythng Learning French..... in No Time" is a bit deceiving. I have taught intensive French for over 25 years and was the Director of an Intensive French Program. You simply cannot learn French or any other language "in no time", a few key words and expressions perhaps. And of course there are people who are trilingual and are just "picking up" French, but in general it is deceptive to claim to be able to teach a casual tourist a foreign language in a few classes. There are plenty of Elementary French books as well as "method" type books out there. Some are better than others. This one wasn't bad just not one I would consider using. The pronunciation part was especially poor.
