I can somewhat understand the negative reviews of this book, since my first impression of it when I picked it up in a bookstore were not too favorable. Then I happened to check the book out of the library, and the more I read it, the more I liked it, and I decided that I wanted a copy of my own, since I tend to write all over books that I actually use. I have been trying to learn enough French to read at least to some degree books (in French) I acquired for a particular hobby interest of mine. In this particular area, the most comprehensive and useful books are in French. Use of online translators and misguided use of a French-English dictionary helped some, but there was a great deal I was still confused about. Try looking up “Il y a” and see what you can find! French for Dummies cleared this up. “Il faut” appeared quite often in what I was reading. I kind of figured out what it meant, but French for Dummies made the real meaning very clear. I have found many presentations in this book extremely useful, and the arrangement that many complain about, for me, provides useful contextual clues that a more “normal” presentation is missing.

no longer a dummy!

I learned French many years ago and wanted to start learning again but i didn’t want to go to a beginners class. I was looking for a book that would refresh my memory and hopefully also teach me something new. French for Dummies did all it promised and all I hoped it would do. I would recommend it if you are either a beginner or like me want a refresher course.

Great book for beginners or someone who just want to …
