Definitely recommended stuff.

I would recommend giving the audio option a shot. My biggest struggle in French has always been keeping up with verbal conversations, but there is a "slow audio version" of each story if your'e like me and failed your oral exam in French because your partner was speaking too quickly.

I liked that the stories.

The advice given in the beginning of the book is very helpful and concise. I liked that the stories had definitions for new vocabulary throughout the reading and then again at the end. Lots of relevant vocabulary!​

Excellent book, learn French here.

What I enjoy about this book is that there is explanations of wording immediately after the paragraph. Rather than having a foot note at the bottom of the pages and not quite grasping what the word is, it immediately tells me what I want/need to know. This will help grow and polish my French vocabulary.

listen it carefully for more understanding.

Love this book and it's easy and great tasting recipes. Works well for gluten intolerant people too. By the end, it definitely pays off, I already noticed that my ability to understand French is improving when I watch videos on Netflix. By the end of the day it's all about training your ear, the more you listen the more you understand.

language learning practice.

This book is great for people whose French is still not at the level that would allow you to the language at a normal to fast speed and with a vocabulary that is in a regular novel. In these books the reader speaks slowly so that you have time to identify words where your recognition is still not completely automatic.

The information thrown at you all at once.

Whenever I start to read about French lessons I become bored and give up quickly as you have tons of pages with new information thrown at you all at once, however with this book and its audio content based on stories it keeps you entertained while learning new French words and expressions that can be useful in the daily life situation .I would definitely recommend this book to anyone starting in French and who is looking for a new entertaining way to learn and progress

Great book, packed with loving data.

This is great for those who want to indulge into the French language even further, as it includes vocabulary that cannot be directly translated, but have different meanings when different words are put together. All in all, this is still a recommended read for those who are serious about learning French!

Easily grasp the concept and idea of the story.

I think that this is a great eBook for French learners of all levels, as it uses vocabulary from everyday language that would be useful for daily interactions in a French culture. I am only a beginner when it comes to learning the French language, as I have not studied French since I was in high school but I found with the help of the vocabulary listed in between paragraphs, I was able to easily grasp the concept and idea of the story.

If you love FRENCH language, try this book.

From the first story, I was picking up on words here and there, and by the end of it, I was thinking in French again without having to translate to English to understand. That being said, this book would help literally anyone at any stage of learning the language. It even encourages you to not get stuck and tackles issues that a lot of other language learning books ignore, like how direct translation can hinder learning.

I had fun reading the stories.

I have studied French only at school, but I've always considered myself an admirer of its beauty. When I saw this book, I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for me and other people in the same situation to brush up my knowledge. The book contains original short stories for beginner to low intermediate levels, with some English translations throughout them. It's a very fun and entertaining way to learn a language because stories evolve around different everyday situations, such as family, weather, shopping etc.

Awesome for just learning.

This book is a great way to learn French. I have studied French before but I learn best when I am fully immersed in a language. This was a great way to read stories and learn at the same time. It takes some studying and real thinking about the use of words and the order difference from English. But it is a very good way to perfect your French. I have the Kindle version, but I would suggest getting the paper copy so you can make copies and easily keep tabs on certain vocab you may forget.

A best Way to Learn French

This book, by Language Learning University, is wonderful for learning the French language. It relays stories in French, going over dates, verbs, nouns, and whatever else is important to your lesson and even has a wonderful vocabulary recap for you to practice your memory recall and test how you are grasping the materials. Wonderful product!

Best book for beginning to learn French.

I wish I would've found this book when I was struggling with my French class in high school. It's simple yet informative and the short stories really help with how to use the words in a sentence. I highly recommend to anyone who is just beginning to learn French.

This book (audible) was great! I thought learning would be much more difficult, but this was a fun way to learn basic skills of French, rather than using expensive software or boring textbooks.

Best, French Short Stories for Beginners.

J'ai trouvé que les histoires étaient parfait pour mon niveau. C'était une bonne chose d'avoir l'option d'écouter ou de lire premièrement. (I found the stories were perfect for my level. It was good to have the option to listen or read first.)
