Grammar can actually be fun!
Reviewed in the United States on October 25, 2019
As a language learner, I really resonated with what the author said in the introduction about creating a book that makes learning grammar fun. You can tell he really wants to help students and make learning French easier than other books that are dry and boring.
I liked how the book was structured by day. Each section was short enough that you could easily do it in a single day without feeling overwhelmed and wanting to give up. The entire book gives you 30 days of lessons so it’s essentially a month of studying which you can come back to over and over again.
Each day starts with an introduction, a quick recap, and then some practice. The author doesn’t go into tons of detail with the grammar, teaching just what you need to know so you can start using it right away. I think that’s what I liked most because a lot of grammar books try to teach way too much in a single lesson and I feel overwhelmed by the time it’s time to do the exercises.
The exercises are also good, very short and to the point with lots of variety like translation, multiple choice, and fill in the blank. Answers are provided right after the exercise so you might have to cover the page with your hand to stop yourself from cheating or reading ahead.
Overall, this is a great book and you’ll know a lot of French by the end of it. Definitely give it a shot if you’re looking for something much different than the usual dry textbooks that make learning a language feel like a chore. This one is fun and easy to use.
