9780071419338: Side-By-Side French and English Grammar

A comparative and simple approach to learning the grammar of a new language

The Side-by-Side Grammar books present explanations of the essential elements of Spanish or French grammar alongside their English-language equivalents. This method allows students to build on what they already know; not only do readers learn grammar for a new language but also enjoy the added benefit of strengthening their grammar skills in their native tongue !

Each lesson clearly explains functions and uses of the different parts of speech and includes abundant examples for each entry. Because the vocabulary is limited to frequently used words, students can concentrate more on a sentence's structure instead of becoming tangled in its meaning. A "Quick Check" section summarizes main ideas in each section and helps readers retain the most important information. New to these editions are exercise sections to further reinforce students' comprehension.

Learn and review French grammar at a glance!

Of all the obstacles language learners face, grammar is one of the toughest. But now there's a way to learn the subtleties of grammar without all the headaches. This revised and updated edition of Side-by-Side French & English Grammar is the perfect tool to help beginning and intermediate students of French understand the similarities and differences between English and French grammar.

By learning French grammar through comparisons to their native English language, students are able to build on what they already know. They'll be better able to understand and remember French grammar while writing, speaking, and being tested on French usage. This innovative grammar guide includes:

  • Each section introduces a part of speech, explaining its functions, and answering common questions about it
  • Quick Check Charts that summarize the main ideas within each section
  • Appendices that identify grammar trouble spots, such as the differences among personal pronouns, the use of determiners, and verb tenses
