French Learning Made Easy

At first I felt overwhelmed, but the companion document was the key tool so I could follow along as I listened. Thanks!

Fun while Learning..!

"I really enjoyed the narrator! His slow, excellent pronunciation of words & phrases to be engaging and helpful to understand new French vocabulary.

He is an excellent storyteller so that a non-French speaker can grasp what he is talking about and can understand the whole story. The highs & lows of his voice as he speaks was very conversational and true to the ear. Overall, I found this a useful audio book both for a beginner and Intermediate French learners as this serves as an excellent base to improve your conversational skills."

A refeshing set of stories to learn French

The narrator was easy to follow and kept me engaged through every chapter. The speed and tone in my opinion was perfect, because it let me follow along in a real time speaking voice. Not too slow or too fast to follow, but just right.

Good foundation to learn French

I am looking forward to more of their audio books. Double thumbs up! It was quite helpful I could actually listen to each vocabulary word and clearly understand what I was hearing. Improved my confidence to speak the language with my native French friend. I'd recommended this product tp those who are looking to learn the French language as well.

Well narrated

First of all I have to say the narration was superb. Nothing is more helpful than being able to understand the material at a reasonable speed. I didn't feel rushed and the intermediate level was just hard enough. Goob job.

Great stories

"While the book is written for Intermediate, and teaches a more advanced level of French, I would recommend this read for anyone who has some idea of French rather than an absolute newbie beginner. I found the stories to start of fairly basic and increase with difficulty as the audiobook progressed. Challenging but worth it!

A nice refresher and a good way to get by in French speaking countries as a tourist in a short period of time."

An Intermediate French Level That's Spot On!

"Clear audio and clear pronunciation go a long way when learning a new language. I have to say this collection of intermediate short stories offers a practical and engaging way of learning. 

I still have a long ways to go when it comes to becoming fully fluent in French but this helpful audio book series is great because I can listen to it on my commute. Overall pleased with this purchase."

Not too fast, not too slow..

Getting to be surprised with the fun stories. Not only did I forget I was learning French, but the smooth clear tone the reader has was on point. Do yourself a favor and get this audiobook if you're an advanced beginner to intermediate French learner. You won't be let down.

Help content

I usually struggle with conjugations and material that overall made me want to quit learning French. Glad I stumbled across this book and decided to pull the trigger. I'll probably pick up the beginner short stories audiobook as well due to the structure of the lessons / stories.

A fantastic way to step up your French

My French has never been perfect, and I don't expect it ever will be. But, reaching conversational fluency has been my goal and these stories certainly helped me with that. I never got the opportunity to practice my French on a consistent basis. So when speaking French out loud with the help of the companion document I was able to improve my pronunciation. Now I'm going to role play with some of my French speaking friends.

Well done

The outer space stories were the most memorable for me. It was like I was a little kid again while learning without a care in the world. Some good life lessons mixed in with some French comprehension. Two thumbs up.

Solidified my French understanding

Although I wasn't able to understand every single word, I was stunned at how much I actually did pick up on. I credit the narrator for taking a seemingly boring educational task and making it fun!

Interesting way to learn a language

Ya'll did a damn good job on these stories. Just what I needed. I don't get to practice much French, so this tickled my itch for some good learning material.

Well thought out structure

Definitely tons of natural dialogues in each story I find myself using in everyday conversation. At times the narrator paused, especially in the vocabulary sections to reinforce the meaning. Quite helpful which will significantly improve your speaking and comprehension ability at the same time!

Rekindled my love for French

I forgot how much I love French. It's been a while since went over my French knowledge. I still remember a ton and this was a nice refresher that proved how beautiful the language is. Definitely helps when the narrator is calm and enthusiastic at just the right moments throughout the stories. Cool idea!

Clear and precise pronunciation

Excellent! I never had a great resource for foreign languages that provided real world situations to learn from. Having the vocabulary of the story broken down into easy manageable parts is a cool idea. The narration in both languages is clear and easy to understand. I think he must have lived in the States and a French speaking country because I can't find a flaw with his narration. Top notch!

Merci! Thank you!

Who knew learning French could be fun? A delight to say the least. For years I have tried to find not so boring material and the quest has ended. Looking forward to more in the series.
