5 stars out of 5 stars

I've been tutoring Standard Grade French for nine years and am impressed with this book, which provides a sound starting point for study to cover all the main topics of the Standard Grade curriculum without bogging you down or overwhelming you with grammar. There is a solid grounding in vocabulary, with enough grammar to serve as a basis and cover the essential points. The author's approach is lighthearted and includes original activities to set you thinking and put the knowledge into practice: everything you need to learn in a different format from the way you learn in school, which is refreshing.

There is an audio CD accompanying the book to test your listening in conjunction with some of the book exercises.

The book's format is bright and stimulating, with plenty of visual appeal.

Like any other revision guide, you'll get out of it what you put into it!

I will recommend this book to my own pupils and suggest they use it in conjunction with their grammar books and past papers, as well as other vocabulary book.
