Students often tell me I make French grammar simple. Aww. That’s the best compliment!
Why do you hate French grammar?
Many people hate French grammar because grammar was never properly explained to them. Traditional French methods use grammatical terms – which students usually don’t understand – to explain grammatical rules!
Students tend to be ashamed when they don’t know grammar
I taught a brilliant man who was… an actual rocket scientist. I kid you not!
He couldn’t distinguish between an adverb and an adjective. And he was so ashamed about it.
But he shouldn’t have been. In English, there is very little difference between adverbs and adjectives.
I don’t assume you understand French grammar…
…Or that you know or remember English grammar for that matter
French methods are usually written by French scholars – and then translated in English. Grammaticians assume everybody knows grammar.
I don’t. I always explain everything.
I use simple vocabulary, compare French to English so that you can understand the differences between the French and the English grammar logic.
