About This Book

Speed up your French is a unique and innovative resource that identifies and explains the errors most commonly made by students of French.

From false friends to idiomatic expressions and the use of prepositions, each of the nine chapters focuses on an aspect of the language where English speakers typically make mistakes. Full explanations are provided throughout with clear, comprehensive examples, enabling students to acquire a surer grasp of French vocabulary and idiom, as well as grammar.

Key Features:

  • carefully selected grammar topics and examples based on the most commonly made errors

  • extensive exercises and answer key to reinforce learning, link theory to practice and promote self-study

  • use of mnemonic devices, including visual illustrations, to aid understanding

  • Supplementary exercises and answer key available at www.routledge.com/cw/Jubb

Suitable both for classroom use or self-study, Speed up your French is the ideal resource for all intermediate learners of French wishing to refine their language skills.
