Any additional comments?

"Its a really enjoyable short read. I've taken French for a long time but never got the chance to practice it on regular basis. This book was a perfect brush up. It helped me in improving my french vocabulary. Repetition of words was of great help and it ensures that the definition of the word and its usage is recalled. To be precise, it was a great refreshment."

Great collection of short stories!

This audiobook was the perfect refresher for the French I learnt in high school but haven't listened to or practiced for over a decade! The speed and diction at which the short stories were read were perfect to follow and the PDF file that accompanied the audiobook was very helpful for seeing exactly how words were spelled. The selectively translated words can be used in many different situations and they have enabled me to expand my vocabulary a great deal. I found the repetitions particularly helpful for remembering the words and rehearing the short story after learning them was particularly rewarding. All in all, I am now extremely motivated to continue immersing myself into this beautiful language!
