Summary
From the Publisher: A brand-new title in Barron's Foreign Language Guides and the latest in the foreign language Grammar Review series, this book covers virtually every rule of French grammar and usage. Following a summary of rules for correct pronunciation and spelling, the author goes on to review verb tenses, as well as reflexive verbs, the subjunctive, the imperative, and infinitive verb forms. Rules governing nouns, pronouns modifiers, prepositions, interrogatives, and negative forms are also examined in detail. The book's final chapters cover miscellaneous topics such as numbers, time and dates, idioms, synonyms, antonyms, and cognates. Interesting French cultural notes can be found throughout the text. This book makes a fine reference guide and review manual for intermediate students of French on a high school or college level. Includes practice questions with answers
