Worth it...

This is perfect for me since I can listen to a chapter here and there when I have small chunks of free time during my day and practice vocab from that chapter after I've listened to it.

Positively worth the money!

I'm still in the beginner stage and I think this might be for intermediates I think but luckily I found out that you can control the speed of the audio on the app so all is well.Easy to follow, good phrases to use in daily life and good references of France. If you're starting French it can help you understand the speed and way how French people talk.

Worth the credit

Having been to France when I was way younger the author really tries to immerse you through the character. The things she does and places she goes are real and helps you give a sense of being there with her. I guess feeling that is the next best thing to being there again. For me atleast I felt this way!

The enjoyable way of learning

Unique way of teaching French with the story following a young girl on exchange. It was different from other styles of teaching I've come across but it was refreshing since it kept you interested. More enjoyable than apps like memrise and duolingo.

Best!!

The book was great so I got the audio so I could listen to it and improve my comprehension. Perfect for a high debutante level or a low intermediate level learner of French. The story was très simple mais cute enough to hold your attention and covered a wide variety of vocabulary and sentence structure.

I would recommend it to every new user.

Enjoying making my way through so far. Yes, the narrator does not catch on as fast and it can be frustrating listening to it, but I'm still learning a lot.This is a brilliant conversational French learning guide. I have done A level French in the past but it did not help me to talk.

Nice!!

I did study French in high school and a semester in college and I think I learned more in the seven-hour course then I did in the years that I studied before. It’s amazing. I highly recommend it. I’ve tried other language learning programs and in my opinion, this is the best.Great book to listen.

Wonderfull book

I have always liked foreign languages but this learning system is a new approach. At first, I was put off by having two other students learning on the tapes and then I realized it was very helpful. I do like the fact that there is a booklet with the vocabulary written out with definitions which helps in a review of the oral lessons.

Leaning approach.

French has always been a fascinating language to me. The audio helps learn accents and pronunciations. The flow of the book and the stories make learning fun and engaging. I like how the author includes definitions of specific phrases along with the story. The structure of the stories adds a twist to the basic English-French translation dictionaries. The stories are centered around everyday life and I catch myself speaking random phrases throughout the day. It's like the learning process is a natural part of my routine.

The best audio language learning out there.

Author does not ask you to memorize, instead he relies on intuitive patterns and repetition over time that makes learning the basics very smooth and instinctual. you won’t learn professional level language from this, but if you are new to the language,

This book listened to with Satisfactory

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.

Best one

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.

This book is a really good beginner's book

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.
