Summary

These short stories are perfect for beginners: you'll be able to enjoy a whole story in French, grow your vocabulary in a natural way, and improve your comprehension whilst learning the correct pronunciation. The stories are narrated by the author at two different speeds : slow and normal.

To maximize study effects, we recommend listening to this audiobook together with a paperback or ebook edition, which contains useful French-English glossaries and a large french-english dictionnary at the end of the book.

For students from beginner to intermediate level (A1-B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference).

Very useful set of stories

The stories were all set out in a way that meant it was easy to understand even the words that I wasn't familiar with. It also helped me to naturally develop common grammar uses and structure of sentences.

Music to my ears

Not having many opportunities lately to speak French, I'd been reading it. But, I noticed trying to watch a movie that I was stopping and rewinding because I was missing some things. It just felt harder to understand. And, I realized while reading it wasn't a problem, hearing it and understanding was sort of slow. When, I did have an opportunity to speak to a family friend, I found myself pausing and sometimes even translating in my head from French to English, which I'd never done before. So, it seemed I needed to re-train my ears, so to speak. I started trying to watch more French television, but I don't have a lot of time for that. And, since I'm always listening to audiobooks, I did a search for audios en francais, and found these.

While I hope that the stories continue and maybe become more advanced, I'm enjoying listening to them. I'm speaking to everyone in my house in French today. When I previously searched for French audios, there were only a few French children's stories. They were cute, but very short. And, I'd love more variety. Will be searching out more books in French.

A real delight

It is a pure joy to be able to listen and understand the spoken word in French. You must of course be at about intermediate level to dive right in. For any words that are unclear after several times through, there is a written text which you can refer to available for the Kindle from Amazon.

Terrible narrator!

The narrator reads this with no expression at all. It's all monotone. The stories aren't bad. I'm interested to see what comes next, so it's a good study aid, but I want to hear it the way it might sound in reality.
