Voilà un peu de travail pour vous amuser.

Pour votre plus grand plaisir, nous avons classé les niveaux par couleur. En fait, même un passionné avancé peut trouver une certaine joie dans la plupart des exercices. Inutile cependant de passer plus de 45 minutes à la fois la-dessus, vous n'aurez pas le temps d'assimiler les acquis. A revoir aussi souvent que nécessaire pour que ça reste bien dans la tête. Ces exercices sont orientés business.Si vous voulez voir ce que nous pensons de la grammaire anglaise, cliquer 

Cette liste sera assez régulièrement mise à jour. Les descriptifs seront parfois en français, parfois en anglais, selon la difficulté des exercices. Bonne chance.

Faux-amis Some of the more notorious. This is not an exercise, just a summary. But you need to learn it. Immediately ! MEDIUM

manage Could there be more meanings than you think ? MEDIUM
meet There are certainly more meanings than you think! MEDIUM
since and for A bit of a waste of time as it's much easier to say "since" every time. Anyway, if you need to speak exam-standard English or your children need help with their homework, check it out. MEDIUM
since with a negative There's no negative after since, so how do you translate "depuis que je ne fume plus ? MEDIUM
stop to do vs. stop doing They're completely different, but the mistakes keep on coming. A short, 6-question exercise to help you remember. MEDIUM

feature a common word in English, but not many non-English know how to use it. Now you can be different INTERMEDIATE
get done translating "se faire" and an alternative to the passive. You need to learn this form, it's very, very common INTERMEDIATE
how long a real pain in the neck. Questions with "how long". It's one of the only times when the perfect tense is indispensable. Incidentally, if you have a problem with "for" and "since", use "since" every time - even when it's not correct, everyone will understand. INTERMEDIATE
keep + preposition another everyday verb, especially when used with a preposition INTERMEDIATE
left il me reste... A useful structure, if not indispensable. You'll have to learn it sooner or later, though. INTERMEDIATE
off off – difficult to use these phrasal verbs. Good luck INTERMEDIATE
prevoir a horror to translate INTERMEDIATE
work out learn it, you'll need it every day when you go to the States, to Britain, Australia & probably in Germany INTERMEDIATE
