Can anyone show me any resources or tips on improving my French grammar. Grammar is the thing that always lets me down on my pieces of writing. I find it difficult to remember and implement all the rules that we are taught, is there an easier way to do this or is it just a case of memorising the rules? Thanks

Read classic French literature and good quality French newspapers.

^ agreed with languagesonline.

I would recommend getting a French grammar book that explains the rules and then an accompanying grammar exercise book - my teachers gave us this one which I find useful. It's mundane but repetition works and it improves your vocabulary too. As for remembering the rules, I find it helpful to incorporate a new grammar rule or structure into whatever I write next after I've learnt it. So once you learn the 'venir de' structure, for example, you could write 'je viens de regarder le film Harry Potter' in your piece about cinema and you're much more likely to remember it in subsequent work.
