FRENCH GRAMMAR BEGINNER FLASHCARDS (A0, A1 & A2)
The French Grammar Beginner Flashcards (A0, A1 & A2) are a digital Anki deck to help you learn the most common French grammar rules from absolute beginner A0, then beginner A1 level to elementary A2 level.
Based on research by linguists Paul Nation and Stephen Krashen, you will learn these top French grammar points gradually in the context of real French sentences and “pop-up grammar” mini lessons that present grammar rules simply.
After you learn the top beginner grammar rules of French, you will know all the major grammatical structures at the Basic French User Level, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
Also, when you master the top grammar rules up to the A2 level, then you’ll be more likely to pass the A2 French Exam, such as the DELF. The A2 qualification proves you have basic French language skills to handle simple contexts in a French-speaking country or simple interactions with native French speakers.
Flashcards: 1728 (includes A0, A1 & A2 Level French Grammar Rules with at least 2 Sentence Examples for each Rule)
Time: Approx. 3-9 months to Complete
Difficulty: Beginners Level (A0, A1 & A2)
2 FLASHCARD TYPES FOR THE FRENCH GRAMMAR BEGINNER FLASHCARDS
Below, you can see the French Grammar Beginner Flashcards for Anki in action. There are 2 different flashcard variations depending on the relevant grammar rule.
- The Sentence Flashcard type includes a French sentence that includes a highlighted grammar point within it. Your goal is to check whether you understand that sentence and grammar rule.
- The Minimal Pair Sentences Flashcard type shows you 2 very similar French sentences, and you need to check whether you know the grammatically correct sentence.
The Back side of these flashcards include the grammatically correct sentence, sentence audio, sentence IPA and hidden hints of the sentence translation in English, and an explanation of the particular grammar rule when you need extra help.
GET FLUENT WITH FRENCH POP-UP GRAMMAR
The linguist, Stephen Krashen from University of Southern California, generally recommends that language learners acquire language through using input, such as books, movies, and so on. This is a great tip especially if you are at the high intermediate to advanced stages of a language, but the beginner stages of learning French can be difficult because you don’t know many grammatical structures yet to understand most input well.
That is why Krashen also says that consciously learned grammar can still be useful. Consciously learned grammar has these functions:
- As a Monitor to help you self-correct,
- To make input more comprehensible,
- For language appreciation.
Krashen argues that “pop-up grammar” can provide information for each of these functions. Pop-up grammar is a brief explanation of a grammatical rule or vocabulary item that generally takes only a few seconds and that can be done in the first language, especially in beginning levels.
Krashen admits that sometimes we need to appeal to consciously learned language, such as learning grammar, to solve real-world problems, when we need to say something beyond our current competence. Sometimes it’s important to learn to say something correctly, and you can’t wait for language to be naturally acquired.
We were inspired by Krashen’s research on comprehensible input and “pop-up grammar”, so we developed our French Grammar Beginner Flashcards based on his ideas. We provide you with simple, easily comprehensible sentences that incrementally introduce you to French grammar from the A0 absolute beginner level, then the A1 beginner level to the A2 elementary level. The front of our grammar flashcards include a French sentence which contains a target grammar rule. We leverage the power of Anki’s spaced repetition system to present you mini grammar lessons as you need it, as the back of each flashcard provides a clear grammar explanation.
As the language learner, your job will be to check whether you comprehend that sentence, and the grammar contained within it. If you do understand it, without needing to review the grammar rule, then you would have acquired that grammar rule in your memory, and you can pass the flashcards. However, if you still need help, then the back of our French Grammar Beginner Flashcards includes hints for the sentence translation and the “pop-up” grammar rule.
REACH A2 CEFR LEVEL BY MASTERING GRAMMAR RULES UP TO THAT LEVEL
Our French Grammar Beginner Flashcards present you the most important and frequently used grammar rules from the A0 absolute beginner level, then the A1 beginner level to the A2 upper-beginner and elementary level. These grammar rules are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which is the international standard for measuring and testing language proficiency in foreign languages, including French. We were inspired by linguist Paul Nation’s studies on the most frequently used words, and wanted to use that idea for the most frequently used grammar.
You save time and effort because we have organized all of the grammar rules, sentence examples, IPA, audio and translations for you up to the A2 level. You can study the French Grammar Beginner Flashcards incrementally, from the easy, absolute beginner levels and then gradually improve to the higher levels of fluency. This is beneficial because you can get started straight away to study French Grammar with our flashcards, so you don’t waste time having to gather, prepare and organize the grammar materials and flashcards yourself.
You also get greater confidence that you’ve covered the top French grammar rules up to the A2 level. You can use the French Grammar Beginner Flashcards to fill in any grammar knowledge gaps you may have up to the A2 level. Most linguists and learners consider the A2 level to be the stage you can survive in French-speaking contexts by speaking basic French sentences.
According to the CEFR’s own level descriptions of the A2 level, when you reach the A2 level then you:
“Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.”– French A2 Level Description, according to CEFR
An A2 level of French is sufficient for tourism and simple transactions in an French-speaking country and basic socializing with French speakers. Although if you want to develop deeper friendships and greater confidence, then an A2 level is not adequate, and the B2 level at least would be more appropriate.
