Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn French? Learning a new language is actually easier than you may think!

This book is divided into four major parts:

  • Basic grammar
  • Basic vocabulary for travelers
  • Basic conversational French dialogues with particular attention to the pronunciation
  • French short and easy stories

The first part contains concise grammar of French organized in the familiar traditional way, describing the forms of French in turn. This section should be used for quick reference, when you want to know something about a form or structure you can identify

The second part contains the vocabulary terms for travelers or tourists. The vocabulary terms are written taking in consideration the needs of people whose first language is not French. It is organized according to the kinds of words you might want to say in particular situations in French, and here, you can look up such things as how to apologize, how to ask the time, how to describe a person, etc.

The third part is based upon basic French dialogues and sentences which are used in daily routine. It also helps to learn how to pronounce specific terms and words of French language.

The fourth part consists of short stories. This part is useful when a person is at least good in French grammar and able to understand the combination of words. These short stories are really helpful to give speed flow in French language.

We have not hesitated to use traditional grammatical terms, especially in the first part. It is worth spending a little time getting to grips with these: understanding the terms will help you understand the structures better, even if they may appear a bit daunting, at first.

We hope that listeners will find our approach interesting and useful. We will be delighted to receive opinions on the book and details about the ways in which it has been used in teaching and learning French.
