A great way to start learning another language
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.
Frederic Bilbard. He really makes the stories easy to understand in french, not even a dictionary was necessary for that.
Is a really good combination, you can understand everything in detail hitting the rewind button a really short amount of times.
Is an audiobook for language not a novel so there was no particularly emotional moment there.
I hope there were english audiobooks as simple as this one in my learning stage
