Better French 2: Past and Imperfect Tenses

‘Definitely does what it ‘says on the tin’. Very, very highly recommended. Buy it.’

Ruth Bake

Here is how to further improve your language skills. Many people learn French for years at school, only to reach a plateau beyond which they never emerge. This book is an effective short-cut to fluency in French. Now following the major success of “Better French (third edition)”, “Better French 2” helps the intermediate reader reach fluency by developing their understanding of past and imperfect tenses. The purpose of “Better French 2 Perfect Past Tenses” is to enable students, who have reached a certain level, to grasp the different uses of the two past tenses, to study all their different formations in a methodical way, and to find answers to their questions on the subject, all at one’s own pace.

Once again, a book on French which improves your understanding of the French language tenfold. I found the first book Better French 1 to be invaluable in helping me to understand the nuances between different verbs. The important thing being not only did I understand it – I found it easy to integrate into my conversation.

Better French 2 has done it again. I can now use these tenses with much more ease and feel confident. Not so easy when you are 47 years old and have only been learning French using Michel Thomas CDs and then attending weekly two hour classes over a few terms!! I sometimes thought I would never ‘get it’. But Better French 2 whizzed it through to my grey matter. Trust me, if I can do it – and you want to improve your French – buy both these books. Basic repetition of the same theme (depending on the tense) and building up knowledge in a structured way, makes for easier language learning. Plus of course the writer is French, with a fantastic command of the English language, and certainment ‘knows her (French) onions’ when it comes to teaching.
Definitely does what it ‘says on the tin’. Very, very highly recommended. Buy it. Maintenant!!
