Very Helpful Book!

I  really learnt a lot from this book. I haven't had the opportunity to practice my French in quite a while since I left college. This is a perfect refresher course for me. I like the way it covered tenses, simple words as well as conjugation. Great read!

Very resourceful tool

After studying french for 4 years in high schoo including AP French I graduated feeling almost fluent. Sadly over the years since then I have lost those skills due to lack of practice speaking and reading in French.I wanted to learn again but dind't have the time to go take a class, nor did I know what level I would be in as I still knew some French but not where I used to be. This audio book was the perfect tool for me to re-learn French. I quickly remembered some phrases after hearing them and learned new ones. I aprreciated that it starts out with more basic words/phrases and then gets a little more advanced as you continue through the book. The repetition was helpful as that's how I memorize things in general is by repeating them. I highly reccommend this book for anyone wanting to learn French or re-learn it.

Great For Beginners!

This is a great audio book for beginners and intermediates. I took French in high school and will continue to take it in college. This is great for people that are just getting to learn French, or people that already know French and want to practice it. I really liked how it taught you vocabulary and phrases and would repeat it several times. It is a great way to study and practice French. The speakers spoke very clearly. I was able understand everything perfectly in both English and French. I also liked that the speakers were not speaking too quickly, but at a nice pace where I could keep up, and comprehend what they were talking about. I would highly recommend tis audiobook to anyone who wants to learn French or just practice it.

Any additional comments?

"Its a really enjoyable short read. I've taken French for a long time but never got the chance to practice it on regular basis. This book was a perfect brush up. It helped me in improving my french vocabulary. Repetition of words was of great help and it ensures that the definition of the word and its usage is recalled. To be precise, it was a great refreshment."

Great collection of short stories!

This audiobook was the perfect refresher for the French I learnt in high school but haven't listened to or practiced for over a decade! The speed and diction at which the short stories were read were perfect to follow and the PDF file that accompanied the audiobook was very helpful for seeing exactly how words were spelled. The selectively translated words can be used in many different situations and they have enabled me to expand my vocabulary a great deal. I found the repetitions particularly helpful for remembering the words and rehearing the short story after learning them was particularly rewarding. All in all, I am now extremely motivated to continue immersing myself into this beautiful language!
