The Indicative Mood: 105 Fundamental French Verbs

by Marianne Yayane Verbuyt

french-verbs105 Essential or Fundamental French Verbs is a bilingual French-English manual which presents an innovative learning method for those who wish to master the French indicative mood. By classing the verbs in terms of frequency of use, both oral and written, the teacher or student is able to progress logically and at his own rhythm. In order to help English speakers learn the correct French pronunciation, a simple color coding has been applied to signal complex sounds and to indicate silent letters. To reinforce a cumulative learning experience, each new element is subsequently recapitulated through diagrams and tables that show how it is used in the different tenses, as well as how these are formed.
