I am going to start doing more work on grammar - I will put aside 20 mins per day for working on a grammar point (i.e. relative pronouns).

What is the best way to 'work on' grammar? When it actually comes to it I can't think of how best to work so I end up just reading the notes.

I understand that in many ways it depends on what works for the individual, but anything is better than just reading notes.

Merci d'avance pour la/les réponse(s) !
J'espère que vous vous amusez bien pendant les vacances de Noël !

Practice!

Here are some suggestions for practice after you've read through the notes:

- Work your way through exercises. Plenty available on the internet; otherwise get a good grammar book - the one I always recommend is this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/French-Gramm.../dp/095706120X

- Make up your own sentences using the structure you are revising, for example: when you're doing relative pronouns, write five sentences with dont.

- Perhaps once a week, try writing a short paragraph on a topic of your choice making sure you incorporate the grammar points you've revised that week.

- Translate into English French sentences with the structure you are revising (this can be examples in your notes, or from texts, it doesn't matter). Put these away for a week or two and then re-translate them back into French. (This is also a good way of storing vocabulary in your long-term memory!)
