Simply Awesome

Talk about being educational and fun at the same time. I seriously cannot believe that French seemed so hard in High School. This audio book made learning French as easy as ABC. The stories covered almost all of my normal conversations and the vocabulary recap made it so easy to remember. I've listened to it like two times already!! Super book!

A great way to start learning another language

What made the experience of listening to Learn French with Stories for Beginners, Volume 2 the most enjoyable?

It is really useful to have an english breaking down for each paragraph and you can hear with cristal clear detail the pronunctiation of each word .As a native spanish speaking person is really tricky to learn french because of the variations from the vocabulary. Making a bridge sing english as a more direct language for understanding makes it really straight forward.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Frederic Bilbard. He really makes the stories easy to understand in french, not even a dictionary was necessary for that.

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

Is a really good combination, you can understand everything in detail hitting the rewind button a really short amount of times.

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

Is an audiobook for language not a novel so there was no particularly emotional moment there.

Any additional comments?

I hope there were english audiobooks as simple as this one in my learning stage

"Well done"

Any additional comments?

"Last year I traveled to Paris. I had a basic knowledge of french learned in high school. Being there I realized how important is to learn to pronunciate correctly in order to communicate on a daily basis. Since I came back I've been searching for a way to learn more but until now I've only found books that felt very boring and were meant for beginners.

This book is the perfect combination of pronunciation and grammar. To be able to hear the words and to see it in paper at the same time is a great way to learn every aspect of a lenguaje. You can also hear the audio portion any time, when your doing other things, to assimilate the sounds easily.

Through the stories we have access to knowledge in a fresh and fun way. They are very entretaining and help you think every word placed in context. The larger vocabulary recaps at the end and the repetition of words interlaced with their English equivalent helps a lot to reaffirm their meaning and to remember it.

After a few listens I felt much more confident whit my french and really eager to hear more. Completely recommended!"

Really useful for beginners

What made the experience of listening to Learn French with Stories for Beginners, Volume 2 the most enjoyable?

It was interesting for me as I had never tried to listen to audio books especially for studying.
This book is a good way if you want to improve your french. I have studied french at school for almost one year and this really helped me to remind myself some really important basics.

Of course, I would listen to it again and again because there is always something new to understand and learn from it!
Thanks for uploading!

Highly recommended!
