Great book for starters

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, It helps learning French through daily life topics.

Which scene was your favorite?

Cooking section. I love food and cooking. Now I can speak a bit of French while doing it.

Any additional comments?

I always want to learn French but never have the time, being a mom and working, but I do have time during my commute and workouts (yes, half an hour a week counts for working out!). This book works for me because it is about daily life topics, like cooking, hobbies, weather etc. It has short paragraph followed by a vocabulary list. I would pay attention to the vocabulary part and try to repeat the words along with the narrator. Often later on in the day I would encounter things related to the book and try to remember the French word for it. It feels easier to learn new words this way. Highly recommended.

Amazing and Flexible way to learn French quickly!!

What did you love best about Learn French with Stories for Beginners?

This is my first experience listening to an audio book in french language and i love it!! Learning french the traditional way of being in a class is not as effective as listening to it because, there is the problem of concentration and trying to keep up with the lesson of each class, but with this audio book- Learn French with Stories for beginners, i can go at my own pace, rewind, go between chapters.It allows great flexibility as i can learn french on the go, in the kitchen, in the car or anywhere because of the different listening options using phone, tablet, notepad or my personal computer.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Learn French with Stories for Beginners?

I love the fact that there is a pause when the vocabulary are been repeated because it allows me to repeat the words to my self. It is also amazing that i can hear the correct pronunciation of the words in phrases and sentences and ultimately i can speak like a french native.

What does Frederic Bibard and Adam McVay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The patience of pronunciation, repetition and variety of stories

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

Yes!!! because i was learning and it was not boring.

Any additional comments?

This is also great for schoolchildren that have french subject in their coursework because it is easier to commit to memory, also it would be ideal for kids with reading disabilities like dyslexia or blindness.The stories are also educative and interesting.

Innovative way of learning French

The short stories were fun and kept me engaged and the audibook was really easy to follow.

Any additional comments?

Really helpful for developing my conversational skills and easy to access via the mobile app which meant I could learn on the go.

Very helpful

I was really surprised with this book. As someone who studied French in school and gained only a basic knowledge of the language, I found through the use of stories that I understood them more than I first expected. The repetition of words allowed me to pick up on new words and build on my French. The best thing about this book is that it puts phrases into real dialogue and hearing it as an audio book is an added bonus and allowed me to hear correct pronunciations. I am so pleased with how much this is helping me to learn the French language.
