Publisher's Summary

Do you know the biggest secret to learning French quickly? To enjoy the material! 

If you are struggling with French conjugations or having trouble finding helpful and engaging material that you can actually understand, you're not alone. This is exactly what inspired us to come up with another book in our highly praised French learning series.

Let's be honest, how is a student supposed to learn when language instructors love providing materials that are tough, expert-level literature with tons of grammar and rules? That style of book for new language learners can be overwhelming and lead you to flip back and forth between a dictionary and your book constantly! Not an effective use of your time nor the best way to learn.

Meet French Short Stories for Beginners: You will find 20 easy-to-listen, engaging, and fun stories that will not only help you to significantly expand your vocabulary but also provide you the tools to improve your grasp of the French language. Speed up your comprehension, skyrocket your vocabulary, and ignite your imagination with these 20 exciting French short stories!

All stories are narrated using vocabulary you can easily use in your day-to-day conversations. The stories are designed with beginner French learners in mind. With that said, it is highly recommended to have a basic understanding of French to achieve maximum enjoyment and effectiveness of the lessons. This program is excellent for those who want to get an introduction to the language or brush up on their French language skills.

How to use French Short Stories for Beginners:

  • Each story contains an important lesson in the French language involving an interesting and entertaining story with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations.
  • A summary in French and in English of what you just listened to, both to review the lesson and for you to gauge your comprehension of what the tale was about.
  • At the end of those summaries, you’ll be provided with a list of vocabulary found in the lesson as well as phrases that you may not have understood the first time!
  • Finally, you’ll be given clever questions in French, so you can prove that you learned something in the stories.

Even if you have failed multiple times to learn French, we guarantee these exciting short stories will give you words and phrases you can start using with native French speakers, immediately. It’s time to add the rocket fuel you need to boost your confidence and finally grasp the language!

What are you waiting for? Start learning French the fun way, so buy the audiobook right now!

So Glad I Found This!!

I've been listening to this since I got it this morning and I love it. The narrator is very clear, enunciating each word and speaking slowly enough that the listener can catch everything he's saying. I really like the level of vocabulary that's included, which includes a broad range of basics like verbs (not just present tense) and body parts, but also some that are a bit more advanced and descriptive, like using the word for "twittering" for the noise the birds are making instead "chirping". I can't wait to get the others in the series and I highly recommend this book. Disclaimer: I was given this book free at my request in exchange for my honest review.

These Sentences are Not Stories

The first 7 "lessons" are advertisements for other books and products they sell. The first "story" isn't a story, but random unrelated sentences with incorrect sentence structure. Obvious hint: ne pas [verb], and ne [noun] pas negative structure and use of reflexive pronouns with non-reflexive verbs. If your looking to improve your French skills, look elsewhere.

Smart way to learn French

The narrator's made this audiobook spectacular. His performance made learning French fun! A range of vocal inflections for the different character interactions made the audiobook a great listen. A lot of vocab and a helpful pdf to follow along. Two thumbs up.

The opposite of boring

French has always been a bit of a challenge for me. I grabbed a copy of this audiobook for entertainment purposes, something to listen to while I was running around. I'm delighted that I did. I'm picking more French than I expected.
