I moved to France over a year ago, and this is the first book I used to try to learn French. It was a great stepping stone, and provided some great information, but sometimes the explanations of certain grammar points were a bit too complex and uninteresting. Still, I consult this book to this day, and it did help me a lot!
This book is a great supplement to someone who is living in a French country or wanting to improve their writing and comprehension skills. Really easy to follow, has an answer key and isn't boring. Super!
