Conjugate French Verbs in the Present Tense with Memory Tricks A Petit Guide by Maria Rice-Jones

This is the second topic covered in the Petit Guide range. One of the difficulties that English speakers encounter when they start to learn French is knowing how to conjugate verbs correctly. After years of teaching and analysing the French language, Maria Rice-Jones has developed a system to make learning the conjugation of French verbs easy. Maria provides clever memory tricks for remembering how to conjugate er, ir and re verbs in the present tense. In addition she provides memory tricks for remembering how to conjugate over 20 commonly used irregular verbs. Using colour coding and mind associations these memory tricks will make learning French verbs easy. The guide is made from card so it will stand on a desk but is small enough to fit into a bag and can be referred to anytime, anywhere.
