Great for beginners

A simple story line with easy to understand language. I was able to follow along, pick up a few new vocabulary words, and focus on listening.

Lovely story. Whimsical and fun.

Voyage en France is a great story of an old Englishman traveling to Paris, accompanied by his wife, to find his childhood friend. It can be quite complex at times for a story for beginners, but a good challenge is a good learning experience. I enjoy having the story in writing and audible, so then I can practice reading and listening. Also, Sylvie begins the story narrating very slowly, and finishes narrating quickly, because if you are learning french for conversations, the French speak very quickly!

Missing PDF

Merely listening to the story absent any written guide is rather useless. sure we get a word or two, but in French it is the small words that run together in speech that are crucial. I am searching for the PDF without success. Apparently one must order it elsewhere. But where? How?
Other Audible selections have the PDF included and downloadable with the audible file.

Great for beginners in French.

Clear reading, challenging enough to make you pay attention, good enough to soften the ear.

perfect

Very well written I think . A nice gentle humour convincing dialogue. Challenging enough yet simple enough. I'm looking forward to the other books.
