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.
