The purpose of this work, like that of second-language teachers, is to inspire students to seek what is unique in each language and to reflect on the relationship and interplay between them. Few English language speakers are going to acquire native fluency in French. Some do manage that incredible feat, but most people learning French, want to get somewhat closer to that elusive native-speaker status. This little book takes you a few steps further along that life-long journey. In the section on grammar, we propose a new and better way to tell the use of the passe simple or passe compose and the imparfait. There really are differences in causal conjunctions (parce que/car/comme/puisque). The agreement of the past participle of pronominal verbs (Elle s'est coupee au doigt) is explained clearly. [via]
