    I like the book. Please put up more like this. I would like if the stories were longer and also a version without the vocabulary breaking up the text. I would give it 3.5 out of 5.

    Sandra

    This is a wonderful book to learn conversational French. With my French knowledge long faded, these stories helped me remember and learn lots of words, phrases and build my confidence in speaking in French again. It was super easy to follow the pdf version while listening to the audio. I liked that throughout the stories different words and phrases in bold were translated into English. Once I learned some, I could easily recognise those words in later stories, which amazingly helped me understand more and more sentences further along. As each story has two recordings of a slow and normal reading speed it is suitable for both, beginners and intermediate learners.

    At the beginning I wasn’t very sure about try to read a book in French ‘cuz I’ve never practice the language in my life. But this book is friendly to read, useful, well-written… a marvelous idea to encourage me to improve my French all as possible.

    Hanif K Wardhani

    I have a long years gap learning French and found that this book helps me to remember vocabs, expressions, and conjunctions I have learned before. The dialogue format gives useful practical advice in speaking and the slow version audio is a big benefit. I was wondering if there is no vocab section that written separately in different page. Overall, It is a very good audiobook to go for learning French.
