any suggestions gratefully received. :)

If you are up to it I would suggest these books:
The book is all in French. Invest in good paperback French/English dictionary to help you read the instructions.
The answer book (corrigés) has to be purchased separately.
This was the book used in my French class.

Bon courage mon ami.

This grammar is really good and one of the best. I use it to teach French to my Chinese neighbour at beginner level (in exchange of Chinese courses) and it works fine. Use a voice translator like Converse to translate in Chinese the grammatical terms and explanations. Written for foreign learners, it's just a pity there is no English or others languages translations. But immersion is great too!

Couper dans le pont > fall into a trap.


According to "La puce à l'oreille"(ISBN: 2715813740) this expression comes from cheating at cards. You would bend a card (le pont) to induce someone to cut the deck at that point.

Tu as déclaré que tu t'étais débattu et le bon Ganimard a coupé dans le pont.

quote from L'affaire Oliveira - short story in Usurpation d'identite by Boileau-Narcejac (ISBN: 9782010075803).
