I really enjoy this audiobook

If you could sum up French: Short Stories for Intermediate Level in three words, what would they be?

Catching, diverse, entertaining


Who was your favorite character and why?

The final ones, because the author included vocabulary in English-French for those words and terms a little bit more complicated.


Have you listened to any of Frederic Bibard and Mariem Nouni ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I did not


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, for me it is a book to listen in parts


Any additional comments?

it has very entertaining stories with an excellent narration that manage to get you trap in each chapter. If you are not very familiar with this accent like me, first it will be a little complicated to understand but after listening to the first stories you begin to understand a little more because of the clear and paused way the narrators have to speak.

Something that I appreciate a lot is the presence of masculine and feminine voices in the narration that achieves the objective of accustoming the listener to the different tonalities of the language.

For a non-native english speaker can be a little difficult to understand the instructions at first and it is because the narrator presents a strong French accent. In conclusion I can recommend this audiobook to all people who want to start tuning their ear to this language, or anyone who enjoys good stories in this fantastic language.

Frederic Bibard is perfect for me, his pronunciation is perfect and make me understand each word and understand the usare of the different expressions.
