Book Information


Title: Using French
Written By: R. E. Batchelor
Malcolm Offord

This is a new, thoroughly revised edition of the acclaimed Using French. It
provides guidance for those who have already acquired the basics of French
and wish to extend their knowledge of the language. Unlike conventional
grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of the vocabulary and
grammatical usage of contemporary French that cause most difficulty to
English-speakers, and incorporates the concept of register differences
throughout. Clearly laid out and easy to consult, it will prove invaluable
to all who wish to improve their fluency and confidence in French.
