If you love FRENCH language, try this book.

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.

I had fun reading the stories.

I have studied French only at school, but I've always considered myself an admirer of its beauty. When I saw this book, I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for me and other people in the same situation to brush up my knowledge. The book contains original short stories for beginner to low intermediate levels, with some English translations throughout them. It's a very fun and entertaining way to learn a language because stories evolve around different everyday situations, such as family, weather, shopping etc.

Awesome for just learning.

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.

A best Way to Learn French

This book, by Language Learning University, is wonderful for learning the French language. It relays stories in French, going over dates, verbs, nouns, and whatever else is important to your lesson and even has a wonderful vocabulary recap for you to practice your memory recall and test how you are grasping the materials. Wonderful product!

Best book for beginning to learn French.

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.

Best, French Short Stories for Beginners.

J'ai trouvé que les histoires étaient parfait pour mon niveau. C'était une bonne chose d'avoir l'option d'écouter ou de lire premièrement. (I found the stories were perfect for my level. It was good to have the option to listen or read first.)

There was no section written in English as you go.

The narrator said there should be accompanying English to go with the French, so it was useless listening to it. Very poor. So I wasted my money and time listening to the Introduction.
