Je suis contente
on February 24, 2006
Amazon asked me to give a review. I read the first review with dismay and disagree with it on all points. The book is a required text for the advanced grammar class I'm taking at the university. Are American students lazy? Of course learning a language is hard work. Of course one must study diligently for a few hours each day if one wants to improve. Of course there is new vocabulary. That's the point of learning. I've used many grammar books to study french, and at the level I'm at, this one is very useful. I'm delighted to finally have a text in french. I'm challenged by the exercises and find they push me along on my quest for a better understanding of the mechanics of the language. Perhaps this book isn't for the novice, but I'm content.
