    Without having the comments for iOS I am planning on buying a French grammar book. I gladly appreciate any reccomendations on which book I should get.

    Since this post is about French, could you move it to the French forum? More of the people who are interested in French will see it there, and it will help keep this forum easy to navigate for those who aren't currently studying French.

    Don't delete it and create a new one, just click edit, and change the topic from Duolingo to French. Here's a guide on how to move a post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16609773.

    Thanks :)

    Hi Crafterfive

    It depends on your level of French, for example A1, A2, B1, B2, etc. Levels explained: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_European_Framework_of_Reference_for_Languages

    There are two books that I really like

    1. Grammaire Essentielle, A1+A2 (Didier)
    2. It combines grammar with audio (45 dialogues)
    3. Colourful illustrations and a range of different exercises
    4. 675 exercises with answers
    5. Contains a useful table of conjugations
    6. Chapters are short: 3-4 pages long
    7. They offer a lower intermediate (B1) book as well

    8. Les 500 Exercises de Grammaire (Hachette)

    9. From elementary (A1) to upper intermediate (B2)
    10. Variation of exercises which progress in difficulty
    11. Longer chapters but includes a range of vocabulary
    12. Lots of illustrations and the rules are explained in a simple way
    13. No audio

    Other popular books (cover A1-C2): Exercises de Grammaire in Context, Hachette Grammaire Progressive du Fran├žais, CLE

    Bonne chance!

    I like all of these. They weren't terribly expensive so I got all three of them.
    Right-click the image and open in new tab to get to an Amazon.com listing of the book.
