Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
The 2nd edition of "Contrastes: grammaire du francais courant" remains what it originally set out to be: a comprehensive French grammar review geared specifically to English-speakers with some exposure to the French language. Written in French (with occasional footnotes and explanations in English), it is meant for those who have already acquired a foundation in French, but who need a tool to help them review and expand upon what they already know to improve their mastery of complex grammar rules and formations. Features:
  • Written in French, with idiomatic "North-American translations" of all examples.
  • "Nota Bene" helps students focus on correcting the most common mistakes by drawing attention to exceptions, contrasts, or frequent errors.
  • "Charts "and" Tableaux synthetiques" allow visual learners to grasp information at a glance.
  • "Generous""lists of frequently used verbs, helpful vocabulary, "and" familiar idiomatic expressions" within the chapters make for easier learning and retention.
  • "Systematic comparative approach" provides a wealth of examples that establish points of comparison and contrast between confusing structures in French and English and focus on correcting the most common mistakes.
  • "Thorough yet versatile and adaptable "text that is useful in intermediate, advanced, culture, grammar, translation, or graduate courses, or on its own as a grammar reference.
  • "Short verification exercises" are designed to help students master key concepts and rules and build confidence as they move from simple to complex structures.
  • "Accompanying Workbook," cross-referenced with the textbook, closely follows the presentation of each chapter and provides ample opportunity for additional practice.
