In general, my main problem is vocabulary, not grammar.

My biggest mistakes at this simple point in A1 are because I don't know the word as opposed to missing the grammar rules (parce que, par, oeuvres, etc.). When I make mistakes the lessons recommended are almost always about the grammar -- are there lessons or suggestions for picking up more vocabulary? (although I'm suspecting that just doing exercises is the best way to get exposed to more words :-) )

Hi Susan, 

I think you have answered your own question. Doing the exercises is a key part of the language-learning process.

Vocabulary builds up through exposure to the language and I am still learning odd words in English and French.

We have vocabulary lists by topics which may be of help to you -

I would also suggest reading in French ( newspapers, magazines, simple books ). Based on my own experience I think that it is good to check every word you come across that you are unfamiliar with, but believe me when I say that grammar is difficult and a crucial part of the language.

Bonne Continuation !
