Publisher's Summary

For high-beginner to low-intermediate learners.

Sometimes, it’s the little things that are difficult to get right. We are here to help! Master the difference between c’est and il est in the next 30 days, with this innovative, story-based immersion method. Just listen to one chapter per day, complete the exercises, and watch as one of the most common errors in your French practice stops being a problem altogether!

“I love Olly’s work - and you will too!” (Barbara Oakley, PhD, author of New York Times best seller A Mind for Numbers)

With 30-Day Mastery: C’est Vs Il Est, you'll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on memorizing anything...you concentrate on understanding and enjoying the story! As you're listening, you will find that the different uses of c’est and il est will begin to lodge themselves subconsciously in your brain. It doesn't happen right away - in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of this book, you'll have a native-like command of both c’est and il est that will amaze you and your friends!

Not yet convinced? Here are all the features you will find in this book:

  • Short chapters of 300 words each - just listen to one chapter a day for 30 days!
  • A text designed specifically for students at CEFR level A2-B1
  • A detailed language overview so you can review and quickly understand the different uses of c’est and il est in the story
  • Short daily practice exercises to practice as you go
  • Bilingual word lists to quickly look up new vocabulary

Scroll up, and grab your copy!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Chapter 9 is missing.

Seems Chapter 9 is from another book and not related to this story. The story is about of couple of young women that head out to Thailand on holidays. Then you get to chapter 9 and it starts like this.

Chapitre 9, maîtresse.
Louis XIV est coincé, mais il veut à tout prix éviter la guerre. Il lui faut absolument trouver une solution. Il réunit alors son conseil des ministres. Messieurs dit il bien que nous ayons une armée imbattable.

That's from a completely different book.

I also bought text version of this book and Chapter 9 should continue like this...

CHAPITRE 9
IL NE FAUT PAS AVOIR PEUR…
Lucie revient enfin avec deux cafés. Elle est très contente de partir. Soudain, elle voit que son amie est toute pâle et qu’elle est seule au milieu de la salle d’embarquement. Elle vient s’asseoir à côté d’elle et lui demande : « Mais, Nina, qu’est-ce que tu as ? Tu es toute blanche !

For such a stupid error I can only give this 1 star. Where is the quality control. This is a schoolboy error and should be corrected.

Good but too many errors in pdf

After initially very high hopes, I have now given up using this audiobook and the accompanying pdf as there are just too many errors in the pdf.

This is disappointing - the last thing one needs when trying to understand difficult grammar are poor proof-reading and consequent errors or ambiguities which potentially just confuse you even more.

For example, some of the grammar in the question and answers sections is incorrect English and is confusing, and some of the answers in the answer key are in actually completely incorrect. After finding these errors I have lost my trust in this whole ''30 day...'' series, my worry being that the sloppy way they have been put together would actually result in a reduction in my understanding rather than enhancing it.

Wrong material plays in one chapter

I'm enjoying the storyline and the concept of read and listen a little for each day for 30 days but in chapter 13 it has the audio for another book (hence the three stars on overall performance) and we go from being in an airplane to being in the middle of some medieval war scene which I think is from one of Olly's other 30-Day Mastery books which doesn't even have an audible book out as yet.
At least each chapter is only a few minutes long.
Besides from this small but annoying problem it is a good audio especially when read with the matching book.
Olly please fix this little mix up in chapter 13 then I will be glad to give this audio a 5 stars rating.
This book you can listen to again and again to let the French words and sentence structures sink in.
