Great book to complement learning French

Knowing the basics of French, I still struggle listening to and understanding French spoken at a normal conversational pace. This is such a great book and helps accustom my ears to the spoken language. The short stories are engaging and narrate the common vocabulary used in everyday interactions, which is great, because every sentence is useful. Slowly I am picking up the language listening at normal conversational pace. A great book to have to complement learning French.

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.

Good approach.

Each story isn't too long, and chapter summaries, vocabulary indexes, and story quizzes ensure comprehension. I'm working my way through this book and have already reread chapters several times. Already looking forward to the next version!

Recommended for French Beginners

There is a PDF version you can download and read along. The speaker is a calm male voice with clear tone and diction. He pronounces all of his words with care, and he speaks slowly so that the beginner is able to better understand the words that are being said.
