1. Easy French Step-by-step by Myrna Bell Rochester

On Amazon.com, this book is the number one best-seller within the French Language learning category. It’s a very popular book. The book is perfectly structured through various modules.

This book will prepare you and give you a grammar foundation, the terminology, and get you going chapter by chapter.

2. Entre Amis by Michael D. Oates

This is more like an upgrade to Easy French Step-by-Step, as it has a lot more graphics. You should acquire this book once you have mastered the basics in the French language, nonetheless, it's still great for newbies because it covers the French language well. Entre Amis concentrates more on oral exchanges, and it teaches through a performance-oriented method. So if you're the outgoing type, find a language-learning buddy that you can practice with. Unlike some textbooks, Entre Amis concentrates heavily on vocabulary and phrases that (gasp!) you may use in the real world.

3. Contacts: Langue et culture françaises  by Jean-Paul Valette & Rebecca Valette

This textbook has great visuals, significant cultural references, helps with the pronunciation and comes with a beneficial French-English dictionary in the back, so there is no reason for you to start craning your neck from your textbook to the dictionary and back again. If you're looking for listening exercises which is very essential if you wish to understand French, then ensure that you get the additional audio to go along with it.

8. Advanced French by Monique L’Huillier

If you need something that’s a bit general, you’re on the right path. It has similar topics with Le Bon Usage, the difference is that it's a bit easier to digest because it was made for English speakers. It has a ridiculous amount of French illustrations and there is an in-depth answer to all your grammar inquiries. It's not that huge in size, it's about (706 pages). It has a helpful index of vocabulary, phrases, and topics to assist you in finding what you need to know.
