Jacqueline Morton, launched the O&H Study Guide series with English Grammar . A must for anyone teaching grammar for students of French. I got this book as a requirement for my French 1 course.

She is a French native, has a PhD in French from Columbia University and taught French at Columbia College and Smith College. 8 people found this helpful. It's an excellent reference guide, easy for even someone grammar-phobic (like me) to understand.

If you're learning French grammar and you don't have a reference point in English grammar because you forgot or never learned it in school . A great resource for students of French who are unfamiliar with English grammar

If you're learning French grammar and you don't have a reference point in English grammar because you forgot or never learned it in school, this book can help you put the two together. Helpful for example, for understanding what is the equivalent of French verb tenses in English, which often confuses my students. There might be multi equivalents in English for some verb tenses in French). A great resource for students of French who are unfamiliar with English grammar. The table of contents is very specific, making the use of this book easy.

Each chapter is divided into two sections. She has a PhD from Columbia University and taught French at Columbia College and Smith College.

This book is a must-have for any French student. Morton uses examples in English to reinforce understanding of the French. I find I reach for this often when doing my French studies. I've taken it into all my French classes over the past few years and recommend it to everyone in the class. It provides answers to so many questions - why? how come? etc. - about grammar that we were taught in English school when we were much younger and now have to apply and understand to understand French grammar. It seems impossible to do, but this book helps lift some of that frustration. Jul 29, 2011 Melanie Benezet rated it it was amazing.

Helpful for students of French who are not familiar with grammatical terminology. During my decades of French teaching this was a standard recommended book for first- and second-year students. Another useful feature is the collection of exercises and tests to verify the assimilation of the information presented

As I learned Mandarin Chinese up to the level that I was able to support my family for several years as a Chinese-English translator and interpreter, I had to tackle several problems for which there is not yet a one-stop-shopping software solution.

While I haven't gotten really far into this book, I've so far found it to be amazingly helpful for trying to unlock the mysteries of why the French language can seem so convoluted at times. What this book does is to review English language grammar rules for those of us who have forgotten much of them, and then it compares side by side the same rules as they apply to French. It makes it so much simpler to understand than just throwing rules at you and telling you to remember them just because. I took this book to my beginning/intermediate French language class and the teacher said she was going to order a copy for herself! I think that speaks volumes! I think anyone who is serious about speaking French well and truly understanding it will benefit a lot from this book.

If you have a son or daughter who's learning French, this will be an EXCELLENT companion to his/her text book. It's a shame, but most American students come out of high school with little or no understanding of grammar. If they do understand it, they probably learned it not in English class, but by taking Latin or a modern foreign language.

Now you may not remember (or care) what a "gerund" is, but anyone learning French needs to know about nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, etc. This little book will help a lot, and you might even be able to see the light bulbs come on when your son/daughter says "Oh- THAT'S why we use that sentence structure!". In fact, f your own French is a little rusty, you'll find yourself liking this book a lot, not for the vocabulary but for a refresher and an overview.

After having taken three years of french a long time ago in high school, I am now taking beginning French as an adult. When I took it as a teen-ager, I never felt like I really understood things grammatically. Part of the reason, quite frankly, was my poor understanding of English grammar.

So when I saw this title, I took a gamble and purchased it. So far, it has been very useful to me. I have been studying it in addition to my classroom textbook. And I have been using it as a reference when I don't understand something in the textbook. So for me, I give it a definite thumbs up. And the size is nice, too. Not too big and bulky but packed with information.

If you're learning French grammar and you don't have a reference point in English grammar because you forgot or never learned it in school, this book can help you put the two together. Helpful for example, for understanding what is the equivalent of French verb tenses in English, which often confuses my students. (There might be multi equivalents in English for some verb tenses in French). The author gives a clear explanations in English of each grammar point with clear examples in English. It's only after one understands the English point that one tackles the same point in French with French examples. I also found many useful hints on how to study the French language. It's a good reference book.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!
I've used its principles for students ages 8 - 24!
I don't believe English Grammar is taught in American Schools as much as it once was.
This book provides information on how English sentences are formed and how they either related or don't at all to the French language.
I've used this book to create Powerpoints for my younger students just getting used to what a "noun", "verb", and "adjective" are in English much less where they are placed in a sentence in French!

One downside to this book, I wish they provided some exercises to practice the concepts being taught.
My college professor placed this title in the "recommended reading" list on a few of my syllabuses and I'm so glad I picked it up.
It's like $15 maximum and it's one of go-to books when planning a lesson or reviewing the proper use of a tense in French.

A great resource for students of French who are unfamiliar with English grammar. The grammars of both languages are presented together for comparison. The table of contents is very specific, making the use of this book easy.

This is an excellent resource for those learning to read and translate French. It helped fill in many holes and/or clarified things that my other text (French for Reading) would sometimes leave out or state in a confusing way. The chapters are short and manageable without being too short or useless. Cross-references are all over the place which makes getting around a lot easier. I would certainly recommend this to anyone as a helpful review, a way to fill in holes, or as a supplement to what you're already using.
Excellent overview for those who want to get the big picture of the French language.
