This is the first French grammar designed specifically for adults with limited learning time who wish to acquire a knowledge of simple everyday spoken French and who have no need of all the archaic highly literary and seldom used forms that must be covered in a conventional grammar It is not a simplified study but a selective grammar that points out many time saving short cuts Constantly drawing comparisons with English construction it covers all of the important points in French grammar verb forms and tenses parts of speech negative sentences possessives partitive construction etc fully and logically and with refreshing clarity It was created for those who prefer the phrase approach and all grammatical points are illustrated with phrases and sentences that you can incorporate directly into your working vocabulary Many of the discussions include a list of common expressions that use the rule under study In addition to the grammar text itself there are several unusual features of great value to anyone who wants to build a French vocabulary a section on common word endings and their French equivalents for example and a 50 page lit of French English cognates This grammar does not assume any previous knowledge either of grammatical terms or of French grammar English grammatical terms are explained in a separate section and all discussion begins with essentials and works up from there Use it as an introduction to grammar for independent class courses with phrase courses as a refresher or for beginning self study
