Many people learn French for years at school, only to reach a plateau beyond which they never emerge. This is an effective short-cut to fluency. "Better French" helps the reader by showing them the right way to use problem words. It addresses the subtleties of the language. Are donc and alors interchangeable? What about grand or gros? When do you use c'est or il est? When do you pronounce the final 's' in 'plus'? Learning the answers to these and a host of other questions can steer you to success.
