GRAMMAR & EXERCISES



Exercise Your French:
Grammar and Exercises

Eiffel Tower

If you only learn the meaning of words, but don't know how to modify them or where to put them in the sentence, you will often be guessing, rather than being confident about your language. Even though French grammar might seem daunting, the good news is that it's simpler than you might think and you should not be afraid of it. I have seen amazing transformations in people's ability to use the language once they learn grammar.

This grammar workbook is for students of French at all levels, based on fifteen years of experience helping students to improve their abilities and grades. The workbook includes simple explanations, helpful examples, and 140 sets of written exercises (over 1800 exercises total). For instant feedback, complete solutions are included.
