Contrastes is a French grammar program designed for intermediate and early advanced college levels. Written in French (with occasional footnotes and explanations in English), Contrastes can be used as either a basic text or a grammar reference. Explicitly written for English-speaking students, the organizing principle of Contrastes is to anticipate and address the unique set of questions and common confusions encountered by English speakers when learning French grammar.
