Described by the authors as "a pedagogical reference grammar that combines explanations with surreal dialogues and cartoon images." Arranged by part of speech, succinct explanations of all grammar topics are combined with exercises and very engaging dialogues to show language in context.

A wonderful site complete with clear explanations of grammar concepts, audio clips allowing students to hear the pronunciation and use of each word in context, and helpful review exercises! Great for university 101 language classes, and I would also refer upper level French students to the site to work on specific problem areas that they might have.

Technical Remarks:

Site is very user friendly.
Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes

I personally did not use this site in my french course however I believe that it
would have been helpful in the beginning. I would recommend that a beginning
french student would use this website for review of nouns, adjectives, adverbs,
pronouns, etc. The site appears to be easy to get around as well.

I have used this resource at both the beginning and intermediate levels.
Students are immediately drawn into the humorous, but very efficient
presentation of the grammar points. In classes where a natural language approach
is used, students frequently seek a concise, English language resource outside
of class. Tex's grammar fulfills that need.

Technical Remarks:

The site is extremely straightforward and has a clear navigational scheme. The
credits page shows that a large design team had input on this project. The site
index and search features are very useful.
