FRENCH FOR SUCCESS is conceived to facilitate rapid mastery of the rules governing French grammar. It is the fruit of reflections on simple, but reliable methods that will enable the non-Francophone to acquire a mindset similar to that of the Francophone. To do that, we strive to simplify the conjugation of verbs, which is what makes the French language appear to be difficult. Accordingly, verbs are placed into categories, instead of groups, depending on their patterns of conjugation. Each category has a conjugation formula. A category is a group of verbs that share similar conjugation patterns in all tenses. While, traditionally, the radical of a verb is repeated six times in a conjugation, the concept exposed in these manuals seeks to use a radical once (unless it is impossible to do so, as in irregular verbs), and replace it with other radicals of the same category. As you will discover, verbs in the same categories share the same six endings which remain unchanged. Examples of radicals are: aim- from aimer; parl- from parler, écout- from écouter or donn- from donner. The groupings and their distinctive features are explained. Understanding that conjugation is just a matter of arrangement of verb endings, and knowing which verbs that belong together makes learning French much easier. Category A comprises over 4000 verbs, and one can learn their conjugation in less than 10 minutes. The curious might wonder why we prefer categories to groups. Currently, there are three main groups – namely the first group which comprises verbs ending in er; the second group which is composed of verbs ending in ir; and the third group composed of verbs ending in re. The first group alone (the er-group) comprises about 13 different groups of verbs, the radicals of which cannot mutually replace one another. We reduce them to 8. For instance, donn-, aim-, parl- and écout- can replace one another but cannot replace céd-or cèd- from céder; or jett and jet- from jeter, etc, although they all end in er and belong to the first group. In the second group, while fini- (finir), agi- (agir), and béni- (bénir) are mutually replaceable, they cannot replace sor-(sortir), par-(partir), men-(mentir); cour-(courir), secour- (secourir); or vien- and ven-(venir). We think that placing in the same group verbs whose patterns of conjugation have nothing to do with one another can lead to confusion. Similarly, in group 3, which comprises verbs ending in re, while attendre, vendre, rendre, perdre can replace one another in a conjugation, they cannot replace prendre, comprendre; and moudre, dissoudre and coudre do not even share common patterns of conjugation. Themes are selected to facilitate visual recognition. Where possible, nouns, adjectives and adverbs are grouped in a manner that help the learner distinguish the gender and number, or show them how those parts of speech are formed. The manuals are divided into four volumes for the progressive acquisition of the rules of French Grammar. While Book 1 introduces such basics as articles /gender (masculine/feminine), and nouns, prepositions, numbers, professions, book 2 seeks to consolidate the knowledge acquired earlier. Other tenses are examined in greater details. Progressively, the users build their confidence as they learn to construct correct sentences.

This 1999 reference grammar, written for advanced students of French, their teachers, and others who want a better understanding of the French language, combines the best of modern and traditional approaches. Its objective is not only practical mastery of the language, but familiarity with its structure. Taking into account modern linguistic research, Advanced French Grammar approaches the French language primarily through the study of syntactic structures, but without excessive emphasis on formalism. It provides a generous number of examples, based on the author's own experience of teaching French to English-speakers, to help the student to understand the different meanings of apparently similar syntactic alternatives. The norms of 'correct expression' are given together with current usage and deviations, and appendixes provide information on the 1990 spelling reforms and on numbers. A substantial index of French and English words and of topics provides easy access to the text itself.

?Something needs to be done about grammar.” Katz and Blyth have written this book with the hope of changing the way French instructors teach and conceive of grammar. Intended to help teachers and teacher trainers develop an understanding of French discourse that is grounded in recent theoretical and sociolinguistic research, this book is devoted to informing teachers-in-training, as well as experienced teachers, about cutting-edge methods for teaching grammar. It also describes the grammatical features of the French language in its social context. At the same time, it provides suggestions for applying such abstract knowledge in practical pedagogical ways, for example, how to structure grammatical explanations, devise classroom activities, and take advantage of resources that give students greater exposure to French as it is truly used in various discourse environments.
