Learn the language of love with short stories. This is the ideal book for students of French who want to take their comprehension of the language to the next level. Rather than being a traditional French grammar book, it offers listeners a series of short, easy stories in both French and English. Listeners can bypass the step of memorizing complicated French syntax rules by simply learning them as they listen. The English version is always available so that they can check their understanding, and each chapter includes a detailed vocabulary section at the end, which is excellent for learning new words. Learning vocabulary in context also helps with understanding and remembering words. It's an all-around better technique than using traditional flash cards, and it's also more fun! This audiobook has a handful of features that set it apart from other, similar books. Each story is followed by a short set of grammar, vocabulary, and comprehension questions. Listeners who want to test themselves before listening to the English version of the story can skip to this section. The book is highly navigable, and answers to the question sets are found in a separate chapter at the end, so it's impossible to cheat accidentally. Finally, the stories follow a graduated level of difficulty. All of the stories are written for beginning French students and are geared towards learning basic vocabulary and grammar skills. The final story in the book, however, adds an extra challenge by using the past, rather than the present, tense. Listeners who are looking to improve their French in a fun and easy way will love this innovative, easy-to-use book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: john fiore.
