Publisher's Summary

Do you know what the number one language learning principle is to catapult your French fluency?

To the enjoy the material!

The biggest mistake language learners make is studying boring, difficult grammar material that causes them to fall asleep before they even speak a single word!

Do you struggle with learning French and the embarrassment of pronunciation?

Do you get confused trying to figure out irregular verbs?

How about placing the accent in the correct place?

Do all of the false friends and tricky vocabulary make your head spin?

As a beginner, in fact, studying these is not an effective use of your time nor the best way to learn a new language. Is this how children learn their language skills? Of course not.

We believe that reading engaging and fun stories that you can actually understand will create an "emotional glue" between you the reader and the newly acquired knowledge.

That is exactly what inspired us to continue our series of 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 Vol 2:

  • 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 failed multiple times in the past to learn French, these short stories will give you the rocket fuel you need to finally grasp the language!

Happily Recommend!!

A great way to improve your French grammar and vocabulary. The narrator is very animated and enunciates each word very clearly, and the PDF is very handy to link what you're hearing with a written word if you're a visual learner. Five stars for me :) Disclaimer: I was given this book free at my request in exchange for my honest review.

French learning

I'm very pleased to find this version to learn French at home. This audiobook is an excelent version for self learners like me that need to practice listening and speaking French at the convenience of their home. These tales do make for a great listen while I'm on the road and want to squeeze some French in. I have only been learning French for a few months and when I heard about this book I was excited to give it a try!

I love learning French

I still remember a ton of French prior to listening to this audiobook, however it was a nice refresher. French is just a beautiful language.This French audiobook has definitely helped me sharpen up my French speaking skills. It's been a while since went over my French knowledge. Definitely helps when the narrator is calm and enthusiastic at just the right moments throughout the stories. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has taken French or who wants to learn French. It is very easy to follow and can fit into anyone’s busy schedule.

Great Language Learning Format

The stories and the pace of the narration is perfect for a novice like me to pick up the basics again. Brushing up on the correct conjugations and pronunciations of a language that I have not spoken in over a decade was almost second nature with this book. This was a wonderful refresher. I wasn't sure how easily I'd be able to follow the stories after years without practice, but the style of this book was very easy to follow. At times the narrator paused, especially in the vocabulary sections to reinforce the meaning. Tremendously helpful - Give it a shot.

Solidified my French comprehension

Although I wasn't able to understand every single word, I was amazed how much I actually did pick up on. As a self taught person who is trying to learn french, I found the short story approach very interesting, since it allowed me to get a context for the new words, and the vocabulary recap was really hepful. I credit the narrator for taking a seemingly boring educational task and making it fun!

Interesting way to learn a language

Decent French learning material. I work in the hospitality industry and Canada is very closeby, which means French speaking families visit and tour our area quite frequently. so knowing how to speak a customers native language is a huge bonus when working for tips. With such a hectic schedule, these easy to consume shot stories are perfect on the go.. The narrator is pretty good and the PDF it comes with is perfect to follow along.

Well done

Just listening to these stories reminded me of when I was a small child. The narrator animated and makes it a lot of fun to listen to. Several good life lessons mixed in with French langauge learning lessons. Two thumbs up.

A wonderful way to step up your French

I definitely recomend this audiobook for those who have a basic understanding of the French language and want to improve their listening skills. The stories are quite helpful with the conversational language - it helped me with several key phrases that I would commonly use in everyday speech. Reaching conversational fluency has been my goal and these stories certainly helped me with that. So when speaking French out loud with the help of the companion document I was able to improve my pronunciation.

Enjoyed the product

The book could have been longer. Probably because I liked the stories so much and didn't want it to end. Well, hopefully there will be more from this author. Nice to know learning French doesn't have to be daunting or overwhelming

YESSS! Ready for more content from Touri Language

The speaker's voice is very profound, slow and is easily understood. Very professional and quality audio. French to English translations in the book are a nice touch l found to grasp the language quickly. I'd say a little advanced for complete beginners, so it's probably a good idea to start with a base of French first.

Educational, but engaging!

"This audiobook is well-structured. It's more a piece of art with the bonus of having French lessons as well. As a beginner A2+ level French learner I felt very comfortable with the speech and stories in the audiobook. The PDF version of the book iI think is the key tool to understanding the wordings and sentences of the stories. This book is a perfect source to learn French sentence structure. It has my stamp of approval for sure!

Improved my comprehension and vocab base

I studied French in high school but basically failed in the subject.. For some reason everything just started to "click" after I decided to put more focus on it. Now, with my current career path I need to have a decent base of French to communicate on a weekly basis. Audiobooks like this are wonderful because it's not too technical and helps me review the language while not investing a whole lot of time.

Beginner French Short Stories.. Well Done

Merci beaucoup! I enjoyed the material to say the least. I’m about close to halfway thru the book and it’s becoming a little more challenging but what I also appreciate is the repetition of learned words from previous stories; this becomes an important element in reinforcing those words and phrases into memory. Did realize there was a pdf to follow along so I will go back a listen again! Much appreciated!

French PDF is Helpful

Realistic dialogues and meaningful conversations. What I enjoyed most is the audio provided with the book because with French, among other languages, it doesn’t always sound the way it’s written as with most words in the English language. This has been a great combination of teaching word pronunciation while reading and training your ear to understand the language. The delivery wasn't too overwhelming and the narrator was fun to listen to. Great idea to recap with comprehension questions and summaries

Conversational French with Fun Dialogues

I've been learning French for a number of years. A book that’s a great tool for beginners with a slight background in the language itself. The vocabulary and basic idioms introduced are easy to comprehend although at first may seem difficult but the teaching approach became clear and infused as I progressed further; repetition. I will need to find time to give 100% focus, but overall a very useful tool to improve your French
