Publisher's Summary

Introducing eight provocative short stories to learn French (including tons of vocabulary and detailed quizzes).

Do you know what's the most popular, breakthrough way of learning a new language nowadays? There's something that's for sure: you already know it isn't common, old-fashioned type of language learning books. Those are incredibly boring and outdated. But there's so much more than that. Today, the most popular, hustle-free way of learning a foreign language is this: by listening to short stories, fun tales, and captivating narratives that keep you hooked from beginning to end. Do we have your attention already? Great. Because that's exactly what this book is about.

Captivating stories + French language = learn faster.

The best thing about using short stories to learn foreign languages is that you actually learn without realizing you're doing it. Think for a second: when was the last time you learned something new without much effort on your part? When was the last time you actually enjoyed the learning process and were eager to keep advancing while having fun the whole time? More likely than not, it's tough to recall feeling like that. That's why learning French with short stories is catching up so much momentum lately: it works, it's fun, and it's pretty much hustle-free.

In this volume you'll find eight exciting short stories intended for beginners and low intermediate French learners. They've been prepared for A1, A2, and B1 levels of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference). Your just have to focus on one story at a time and start listening. Each story contains 3000 to 4000 words, and they can be listened to quite effortlessly. The stories deal around multiple genres, including mystery, adventure, fantasy and romance, and take place in France. We've prepared these tales to keep you entertained and motivated to continue listening until the very end of each story.

    "Highly recommended French stories to listen to"

    If you want to practice French language and enhance your comprehension, this audiobook is the perfect guide to use! All you have to do is listen to the stories being told. Don't worry because the narrator makes sure that you wont get lost during the story because they were well delivered. even thought you aren't that good yet on French, you will still understand every sentence. You will only need basic knowledge on this language though. I had fun so I am giving 5 stars for this!

    "perfect stars for this!"
    What made the experience of listening to French Short Stories for Beginners the most enjoyable?

    If I was just reading it, it would probably difficult to me to comprehend because I understand French easier when I hear it than reading it. Written French words are just hard to understand for me. so this is a lot better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes the third story is the best!

    "It is a fun and effective way to learn French"
    What did you love best about French Short Stories for Beginners?

    What I like best about this audiobook are first the stories. They were all fascinating as expected and next was the way the narrator delivered them. I thought I wouldn't understand them because I am just new in French language. Job well done narrator!


    What does Sylvie Pardon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well delivered! Full of emotions, I truly got hooked listening!


    Any additional comments?

    I'd definitely recommend this audiobook.

    "Awesome!"

    Been practicing French language for quite a while now because I was not pretty sure if I can still speak and understand French since it has been months that I haven't speak in it already. This audiobook made my French language practice time fun as I enjoyed trying to understand the stories that are being narrated. Well done! This is an effective guide!
