    A reform of French teaching was introduced in the French speaking part of Switzerland in the late 1970's. It particularly lead up to a reappraisal of the grammatical terminology. Within the context of the assessment of the effects of the reform, the author presents results concerning students' performances in the beginning of the 8th class regarding the marking out of the verb complement. Datas show that the marking out is poorly mastered by students. The author puts forward several hypotheses allowing to account for those results. He brings out the main lines for an efficient teaching of grammar. He also sets concrete propositions of adjustments of the teaching of grammar concerning – among others – learning activities proposed to students and grammatical terminology used in class.
