This is definitely helpful.

This is definitely helpful. The book presents lots of different tenses, which are very common in conservation so this is challenging, yet rewarding and fun to learn different ways to say things.

This book is really well-done.

This book is really well-done. The stories are more interesting than your average beginner materials, and I like that the stories use a lot of dialogue to teach colloquialisms. I was surprised by the subjects of many of the stories--I definitely enjoyed reading them more than I'd thought I would.

A useful guide forever. I'm inspired!

To get the most out of new vocabulary, I recommend that you try to make your own sentences with the new vocabulary.

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!

I love it and suggest it.

This book is awesome. I can understand 80-90% of the stories. I have learned a lot about sentence structure from it, like how things are said in the French language beyond a single sentence or phrase.
