Summary

Real French people don’t speak like your textbook…so it’s no wonder you feel unprepared when it’s your turn to speak! Try the StoryLearning Method, and dive into a real-world, gripping drama between six characters that helps you learn authentic spoken French in the process.

Created by Olly Richards, internationally-renowned language teacher and author, this proven method of the immersive experience not only entertains, it gives you the skills to master realistic encounters in shops, cafés, and other, everyday scenarios!

In this story, two friends, Alice and Sophie, arrive in Paris for what they think will be a relaxing vacation exploring the city. Things, however, take an unexpected turn when they discover some very valuable paintings in one of Paris’ antique markets....

Whether you’re learning the French, of Canada, North Africa, France or even your local French-speaking community, you’ll learn to speak naturally wherever you go.

Best of all, you’ll be able to handle new scenarios with both ease and confidence!

“I love Olly’s work - and you will too!” (Barbara Oakley, PhD, Author of New York Times best seller A Mind for Numbers)

Here’s what you’ll get:

A. 101 French conversations with over 15,000 words of dialogue — an unparalleled resource that will immerse you in French at a level you can easily understand and reproduce.

B. Expressions that real people use on the street. You’ll sound more authentic when you speak and make French-speaking friends more easily.

C. Situational French dialogues that help you thrive in typical daily circumstances, so meeting people and making everyday arrangements will become second nature.

D. Conversations that are carefully written to be accessible for beginners (A2-B1 on the CEFR), so you can speak confidently, even with strangers.

E. Each conversation is limited to around 15 lines of dialogue (150 words) to help you master the expressions more quickly, and keep you moving toward the finish line.

You have to have the book!

I would give this 4 stars if you have the book and perhaps 2 stars without the book.
it is written like a play. The conversation goes something like:
Sophie: Let's go to the market. it's a lovely day.
Alice: Good idea. I'll grab my coat.
Sophie: I'll meet you at the car.

Now imagine if the diolog was spoken by the same person acting all the characters but without telling you who's speaking.

As there is no way of knowing who's speaking, it would be difficult to follow even in English. Having different voice actors would have gone a long way to help.

It is really good when following with the book though (which I bought afterwards). Listening and reading is very useful

Enjoying it so far, happy with purchase :)

Interesting story, simple enough (dialogues) to follow, good narration. Best book/audiobook of conversational dialogues I have found, after listening to 4-5 others with more reviews of good ratings.

They're not conversations.

I bought this on Kindle then Audible to go with the kindle versions. I am disappointed with the Audible version. They are transcripts of a story read out by one person. A conversation is something carried out by two or more people. This is simply a transcript or story read out by one person that takes place in a taxi or an antique store and other places. While the audio is clear and there is plenty of vocab to get your teeth into. There is zero quality production to it. ie no background sounds or noises to help place you in the environment. All parts are read out by one woman, including the narration.

So instead of losing yourself in the immersion of the story, you are constantly reminded by the quality of the producton. You're better off looking up "Dialogues en Français" on Youtube for real authentic sounding dialogs and conversations by actors with some proper sound production to boot. Plus it's free.
