A new way to learn French Grammar

Bootstrap French Grammar is a new way to learn French grammar. Starting from the beginning, the idea is progress in small self-contained steps (called ‘topics’). Each topic builds on the last, by incrementally adding new grammatical patterns, new vocabulary and lots of useful examples.

In total there are 224 grammar topics and over 4,000 examples phrases.

Each topic includes a thorough explanation of the grammar and then lots of examples that illustrate the grammar. Each example includes an English translation, as well as notes highlighting how each example illustrates that topic's grammar, as well as the meanings of new French words.

The companion mobile application is now available also called "Bootstrap French Grammar". The app contains all the content contained in this book - including 224 grammar topics and over 4,000 example phrases. And in additional, there is high quality French native-speaker audio for every example. More details here.
