So helpful!

I love this book. It is such a good way to learn the application of words and phrases that you learn in the beginning of learning French and it gives you hope that with some practice you will be able to carry on basic conversations before too long. The only suggestion I have is that at the very end it would be great if the narrator read the stories in French only and at normal speaking speed so the listener can work on tuning the ear to normal speech speed. The narrator is wonderful and speaks slowly and clearly to help with discerning the words which is an excellent way to learn in the beginning. It’s just that eventually we’ll have to be able to understand at full speed so a full speed French only version at the end would be super helpful. Thank you very much to the makers of this book. It is so helpful and well done.

Job well done

Very enjoyable and the sentence structures really sinks in. A native speaker does the narration and I slowed it down a bit when first listening. A fun story line which doesn't take it self too seriously but is well thought out in terms of introducing a new French learner to the language. I did buy some beginner books when I first started learning French and have now after 8 months have grown into some of them. This book is more on a beginner level to start with but in saying that I am using it as a listening/comprehension exercise and I am enjoying it and learning a few new words and it is reinforcing my previous learning. I hope that the author does release part 2.
