Very Helpful Book

French: Short Stories for Beginners + Audio is an amazing book. I took French throughout high school but did not continue to practice after graduation. This was a wonderful refresher. I was not sure how easily I would be able to follow the stories after years without practice, but the style of this book was very easy to follow.

The book is separated into chapters that are anywhere from ten to twenty minutes long. This gives ample time to fit a chapter into anyone’s busy schedule. There are also various speeds that the book can be listened to. It can go as slow as 0.75x or as fast as 3x. This allows more advanced listeners to go through the chapters faster. It even offers a sleep timer to get some practice in before bed!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has taken French or who wants to learn French. It is very easy to follow and can fit into anyone’s daily schedule. It has definitely helped me sharpen up my French speaking skills.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

I had been enrolled for french classes for a month. It was great but at the same time tiring because the school is quite far from my home. However, due to the importance a give to the french language for business and arts ( in this 21st Century you should handle at least 3 languages to be competitive) I decided to take some practice form other sources. (Additionally, I have my daughter enrolled in an international school where french is the main language. )

I was willing to practice some words and frases with my princess but is difficult to find something good online. I decided to do a search here in Amazon to see what can help me and I found this wonderful audiobook. Not only I practiced my french but I help my daughter with a wider vocabulary since I played the audio while we are at home.

The speakers are very good, the voices are clear and the stories are nice and very interesting. After every new word there is a translation to english so you can know what they are talking about. I would recommend this material to anyone who is willing to perfect the listening and also the speaking( you could repeat after the narrative ). Once you complete this book you start to improve your french language skill considerable. I have listened this book many times and the words and phrases are very solid in my mind.
