Publisher's Summary

What is the most challenging thing about learning French?

It is finding helpful and engaging reading material that you can actually understand…. That is exactly what inspired us to write this book.

How is a student supposed to learn when language instructors love providing materials that are tough expert-level literature with tons of grammar and rules? That style of book for new language learners can be overwhelming and lead you to flip back and forth between a dictionary and your book...constantly! 

Not an effective use of your time nor the best way to learn. Is this how children learn their language skills? No.

Enter French Stories for Beginners vol. 1:  You will find 10 easy-to-read, engaging, and fun stories that will help you to expand your vocabulary and give you the tools to improve your grasp of the French language.

Improve your comprehension, grow your vocabulary, and spark your imagination with these ten unconventional French short stories!

All stories are written using vocabulary that you could easily use in your day-to-day conversations.

The stories are written with beginner French learners in mind. With that said, it is highly recommended to have a basic understanding of French to achieve maximum enjoyment and effectiveness of the lessons. 

This program is excellent for those who want to get an introduction to the language or brush up on their French language skills.

How to read French Short Stories for Beginners:

  • Each story contains an important lesson in the French language (verbs, adjectives, past tense, giving directions, and more), involving an interesting and entertaining story with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations.
  • A summary in French and in English of what you just read, both to review the lesson and for you to gauge your comprehension of what the tale was about.
  • At the end of those summaries, you’ll be provided with a list of vocabulary found in the lesson as well as phrases that you may not have understood the first time!
  • Finally, you’ll be given clever questions in French, so you can prove that you learned something in the stories.

Even if you have tried multiple times to learn French these short stories will give you the jump-start you need to finally grasp the language!

Stories in the passé simple

These stories are written using pasée simple. Of all the audios that I have purchased on Audible, and there are many, this is the only one which uses the passé simple. If you want to be able to learn to converse in french this is not for you. Also words which require a translation are set out at the end of each story rather than contained in the storyline as is the case with other french audios. There are however 10 stories which is quite good value.

I have really enjoyed this book

the audio really helps on how to pronounce every word in French. As what I've experienced, if you are learning a new language, it would be an advantage if you know how to pronounce it as well and not just learning how to write or use it in a sentence.

Easy listen.

This is a fantastic tool for improving your French on any level. While I consider myself "almost fluent" in French I was entertained and enlightened by this material. I reaffirmed what I already knew and discovered a few surprises as well as correcting a few faux pas I had been making for years.

The idea of teaching the language through stories

It helped me to understand rules to French that I hadn't known before because I was never introduced to it from a higher level teacher. There were words in it that I knew and understand.
