7 reviews for French for Kids Volume 2: 10 Bedtime Stories in French and English with audio

  1. Ian Geary

    Having the French and English translations side by side really made learning French easier. The stories are fun to read, and the audio files really helps with pronunciation.

  2. Bruno Bunya

    As a beginner in French, I found this book really worth it. The stories are easy to understand and fun to read. Highly recommend!

  3. Johanna Lohman

    I enjoyed being able to both read and listen to these stories. The stories go paragraph-by-paragraph, first in French and then the translation in English. This keeps the reading from being too overwhelming. The recordings are of excellent quality and really helped me match the words with their pronunciation.

  4. Renan Pedro

    Great translation, layout and audios comfortable.

  5. fp131092

    Great way to see the differences between French and English, with all of those different and enjoyable stories.

  6. Kaique Mitsuo

    The material presented is of excellent quality, I read the PDF and then I listened to the audios.

    The audios in French should have more naturalness and a little more encouragement.

    Other than that the material presents the very cool way of reading and learning.

    Another observation would be if the material is for the children’s audience should have more animations between the pages.

  7. Matthew

    French for Kid’s Volume 2 is another collection of 10 short stories that will educate and entertain. These stories are certainly on the short side- each having around 10 pages each. They are perfect for a bedtime story. The main draw of this book of course is it’s dual language features, which are excellent. You get both English and French audio tracks to listen to and the text itself is broken down into easy to study paragraphs- one in French followed by it’s English translation. To be perfectly honest these stories might fall flat with your child. They are a bit boring and uneventful, and I would find it surprising if any of the 10 stories end up as one of your child’s favorites. However, this book is perfect for learning french as it will be far more engaging and an excellent change of pace for more traditional exercises to learn french. I am half french and snoozed through my high school french classes, I wish we had done stories like this instead of random, repetitive sentences.
