Comprehensive vocabulary, a great experience

I really enjoyed this audiobook! Beautiful voices, first off. It pretty much covers all the vocabulary you will need "to travel in France with confidence." You need to know the basics of French first, though, since it doesn't go through any grammar review. This is for a beginning-to-intermediate student wanting to acquire vocabulary and usage.


The reason why I gave it only 4 stars in performance is because sometimes the English translations are grammatically funky or mispronounced. But hey, it'll help you get used to understanding a French accent!


 One of my favorite features of this book is its layout. First you can listen to the Fr/En recordings by Mariem Nouni to learn the material. Then you can use Frederic Bibard's recordings (the same words in French only!) as flashcards to see if you can understand the French without using English as a crutch. He even shows all the different ways you can pronounce one word. Great job, guys!

Great Refresher

I have studied French for 6 years- 2 years in high school and 4 years in college. I found that this audible was very helpful as a refresher since I haven't spoken French or practiced it for 3 years since I started medical school. The people who were saying and translating the phrases were very clear and helpful. If you put it in the time to practice and repeat with them, it would definitely help.

Perfect way to learn french

I have taken some French lessons before but nothing as easy and thorough as this. I have gained a wealth of the French language. It makes the whole learning process easy and efficient.  It offers everything that I need to speak as much French as I want. I have learned so many vocabulary words, phrases, and proper pronouncing of the French language.

 

This audio book is a very good source for someone like me, looking to pick up phrases and words in French. It offers everything that you will need to have the confidence to speak French without error. It is a fantastic approach to learn and speak French for beginners or someone looking to brush up on the French language as I was.

 

It has complete words and phrases that are spoken clearly in French and then followed by the pronunciation in English.  It definitely adds a enormous French vocabulary to your learning. It allows you to be able to play and rewind or fast forward if needed. You can also stop and continue where you left off. It has a bookmark feature that is complementary. You can skip whole chapters if you desire as well for your convenience.

 

This audiobook was worth my time!

Great book to learn French

“French Phrasebook: +1400 Phrases to Travel in France with Confidence” is a great audiobook to learn French. I have never taken French, but I have always been interested. This short book definitively helped me learn words and phrases in French. I really appreciated the repetition of words and phrases since it helps with the learning process. I also enjoyed that the book contains everything you could need to establish conversations, get directions, indicate places to visit or sightseen, among many other useful words. This audible version allows you to not only learn a word but also its pronunciation and how/when to use it. I highly recommend this book.

A handy guide for tourists.

This book is perfect for a handy guide while traveling in France. It has a written guide for visual learners as well as being able to hear the way each word or phrase is said. This means you will be able to properly pronounce the words. I especially liked that it included a section on food and food allergies. Those who suffer from food allergies will be able to eat safely while traveling in another country.

Just what I needed!

I got exactly what I expected and more from this audiobook! Not only does it include every French phrase you could ever need, but also it gives you access to the PDF! I did take French classes many moons ago, and this served not only as a great refresher but also I learned new phrases I wasn’t familiar with before. It’s so simple and straightforward that I think pretty much anyone can use it and benefit from it. Highly recommend!

Fast paced yet easy to follow along

Before this book, my background with the French language was very limited. I've never had the chance to take French as a school course growing up, but have been interested in learning to be able to at least understand and use a few conversational phrases. In the past I have tried a phone app as well as a free online course but never really stuck with it and the reading material wasn't readily available once completed.

After beginning this book on audible, I found it extremely helpful that there was a PDF version you could either use to follow along or use on it's own. The PDF also had a vast amount of extra information to better assist with understanding that wasn't talked about in the audio. The pace of the audio was a bit fast paced for a beginner like me, but I feel having the PDF available was a huge help. The amount of phrases and usefulness of the phrases would definitely come in handy to those who have the need to speak the language, but it's also a great tool for a beginner to go through as well.

Cool listen

I have had some difficulty trying to grasp the French language and as a beginner I really enjoyed how the audio felt as if someone was conversing with me. I really enjoyed having a voice talking back that articulated the words that if I was reading I would of mispronounced.  The repetition was highly helpful as I had time to repeat the words and given a chance to hear it clearly. I was able to learn new words and pick up on the mistakes I had with others in terms of pronunciation.

Amazing Phrasebook

I like the structure of the book. It's really well built because of that it's easy to learn.
I personally love the bonus section, particularly the "A Guide to French Food Habits ....". :)
I can strongly recommend it for everyone who plan to go to France for holiday or a short trip.
