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.
Site is very user friendly.

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.
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.
