French Grammar Resources

How to improve your written production?

1- Learn your grammar!
Work with a good book, do exercises regularly
We recommend:
La grammaire progressive du Francais (Clé International)
Débutant: ISBN-10: 209033858X
Intermédiaire: ISBN-10: 2090338482
Avancé: ISBN-10: 2090338628

2- Write little texts and read it out loud.
You might be able to correct your own mistakes.

3- Take a course in which your teacher will give you written homework.
Many teachers don’t do it, since it’s more work for them (they have to correct your homework at home), but it’s essential for you. Because during the class, more time should be devoted to talking.

4- Take private lessons and work on your weaknesses with your teacher.
It’s good to practice writing in a useful and authentic context for example: writing a letter to friends, writing emails, invitation, professional correspondence etc..
