In this new book, at the top of the group conjugation page in tiny neat letters, I have penciled in verbs I have looked up so far. This is reminding me of new words and relating them to their verb cousins. I wish there were such a book for students of English. So many of us had no idea what grammar was until we studied a foreign, organized language.
Here is what I love about my replacement English Edition of Bescherelle: the index of 12,000 verbs. Each verb on the list has an English equivalent. I have used the list, which remains full of unknown French words, as a way of developing my vocabulary and looking for sentences to "mine" from a corpus or Reverso using either the infinitive or a selected conjugation. In addition, the verb list includes both the base verbs and their reflexive forms, thereby giving a concise and convenient indication of how the meanings can change between the forms.
When I saw Bescherelle for Spanish, I snapped it up. I would have preferred that is have been Spanish in an English Edition, like this one, however my French is good enough to use the translations on the verb lists. There is a certain pleasure of approaching Spanish via both familiar and need-to-know French verbs.
There is an amazing amount in this small, light, sturdy volume that travels well. In this day of technical wizardry for language learning, Bescherelle is one of my three go-to books along with a old "Petit Robert" that I have tabbed, and a wonderful Larousse "Maxi Débutants 20,000 Mots" that seems to be out of print.
