These short stories are perfect for beginners: you'll be able to enjoy a whole story in French, grow your vocabulary in a natural way, and improve your comprehension whilst learning the correct pronunciation. The story is narrated by the author with special emphasis on early text comprehension practice and pronunciation.

Music to my ears

Not having many opportunities lately to speak French, I'd been reading it. But, I noticed trying to watch a movie that I was stopping and rewinding because I was missing some things. It just felt harder to understand. And, I realized while reading it wasn't a problem, hearing it and understanding was sort of slow. When, I did have an opportunity to speak to a family friend, I found myself pausing and sometimes even translating in my head from French to English, which I'd never done before. So, it seemed I needed to re-train my ears, so to speak. I started trying to watch more French television, but I don't have a lot of time for that. And, since I'm always listening to audiobooks, I did a search for audios en francais, and found these.

While I hope that the stories continue and maybe become more advanced, I'm enjoying listening to them. I'm speaking to everyone in my house in French today. When I previously searched for French audios, there were only a few French children's stories. They were cute, but very short. And, I'd love more variety. Will be searching out more books in French.
