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
