Few mistakes don't affect the stories

I prefered the French to the English narration. A few glitches in the narration or recording repeat last couple words. Stories are given in French, English, French and English, then more slowly: French, English, then French and English, only Stories 3 through 8 are (likely mistakenly) replaced with completely different stories for the slow duel English/French recording. I don't see this as a major problem since the stories are narrated 5 additional times, and this technically adds 6 additional bilingual stories.

Good listen!

The vocabulary is accessible and repeats enough that the reader becomes comfortable with the new words. The increasingly difficult grammar is introduced slowly enough so that the reader’s confidence grows as each new concept is introduced. One takeaway I’ve noticed is that my reading speed and comprehension improved the more I got into the stories.

Excellent resource.

This is an excellent resource for learning useful French that will be very helpful in daily interactions. It's a great supplement to a more formal study. I'm enjoying reading the stories aloud and practicing French pronunciation.

Helpful book.

A helpful book for beginning and intermediate French learners! The stories were
challenging but rewarding. Loved learning vocabulary that was included without
having to have a dictionary next to me.

Thanks for the Author

I've used a bunch of audiobooks for french languages in the past few years and I can say this book is well worth it. You get the PDF with the audiobook and that is important as you can go through the stories and really ensure you understand the details and nuances.

The audible version is not dual text

I hoped and expected that the audible version would replicate the book... ie alternating paragraphs of French and English.

It isn’t so basically it’s been mis-sold. Frankly I want a refund. I listened to over thirty minutes and it’s solid French.
