Finding PROPER reading material that they can handle…which is precisely the reason we’ve written this book! Teachers love giving out tough, expert-level literature to their students, books that present many new problems to the reader and force them to search for words in a dictionary every five minutes — it's not entertaining, useful or motivating for the student at all, and many soon give up on learning at all! In this book we have compiled 20 easy-to-read, compelling and fun stories that will allow you to expand your vocabulary and give you the tools to improve your grasp of the wonderful French tongue. How French Short Stories for Beginners works: Each story will involve an important lesson of the tools in the French language (Verbs, Adjectives, Past Tense, Giving Directions, and more), involving an interesting and entertaining story with realistic dialogues and day-to-day situations. The summaries follow a synopsis in French and in English of what you just read, both to review the lesson and for you to see if you understood what the tale was about. At the end of those summaries, you'll be provided with a list of the most relevant vocabulary involved in the lesson, as well as slang and sayings that you may not have understood at first glance! Finally, you'll be provided with a set of tricky questions in French, providing you with the chance to prove that you learned something in the story. Don't worry if you don't know the answer to any — we will provide them immediately after, but no cheating! So look no further!

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review. This was a good book for beginners, and I quite enjoyed it. I really like the vocabulary sections, especially with a gendered language like French. The stories were nice and varied.

    Great for beginners & those wanting a refresher (an audio review) The structure of this audio is very simple – a story in French, a summary of the story in French, a summary in English, a review of the key vocabulary, and a quiz. It works brilliantly. If you have some familiarity with French, it is a great refresher. If you are new to French, I encourage you to download the PDF and follow along.

If you can’t, you may be a little lost during the stories, but don’t worry, the summaries will help you catch up. I have some knowledge of French and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Of all the stories, I enjoyed the third one the most. The story of a woman who goes to speed dating and comes away with much more than she had expected. There are cute stories, funny stories, while some are short, and some are a bit longer. All in all, they are enjoyable. Noelia Gouty is a fabulous French narrator because she does not have a strong regional accent – she is as neutral as one could wish. Her speaking in English is not as strong and she mispronounced several words. Not a big deal and certainly not enough to detract from the book. Overall, I enjoyed it and can recommend it to someone contemplating plunging into the beautiful romantic language that is French. For myself, it was a wonderful and engaging book.

    I loved this audiobook and kindle book so much! This is perfect for beginners like me who are trying to learn the language. The stories are fun, and it is a great way for me to immerse myself into the language, when I have no other way to do so. I am so happy that I have this to listen to again and again. This is worth the credit or purchase. If you are a beginner wanting to learn French, this is a must have!

Following in the style of Volume 1, this new volume of 20 French short stories for beginners is full of new vocabulary and some entertaining as well as educating tales. In the Introductory Note the goal is stated well: ‘We are so happy and enthusiastic to provide you with 20 short stories that have been specifically designed for advanced beginners…This volume retains the same structure as the precedent one, for each chapter there is a story, a summary in both French and English, some French vocabulary sheets and their English equivalents as well as questions about the content story to ensure that you have properly understood them…Natural languages are rich, they are open and verbose, their form is partly the result of thousands of years of cultural and societal interactions, from the daily routines of peasants in the Middle Ages, to the rise of monarchies and empires and the ways that they have transformed the minds and the dialect of natives, indeed learning a language is about discovering a new way of perceiving the world’ What follows in this book are very well designed (excellent choices of font and making the new vocabulary stand out in bold) and the stories are entertaining while teaching a new language in an accessible manner. And so it proceeds with one of the more accessible adjuncts to mastering the French vocabulary in a manner that places words in context and thus – easy to remember! The technique is solid and the lessons well taught. This is a very fine continued introduction to French, a book much needed at this time in our national status!

    A fantastic book for beginners who are eager to learn the French language! I had only began studying French for a couple of months and was having some trouble remembering some words.

I would definitely recommend this to people who are beginners and want to learn in a productive way!

    Nice simple stories for beginners in french. Each story opens with an explanation in english. Then the real story begins. After that you find a summary in french and a summary in english. Then a frenc-english vocabulary of that story and in the end a few multiple choice questions. Most of the stories are nice. The children stories (for instance 'Scapegoat') were less to my liking. The language of the children in it is too adult I think. But: When you want to study french and want to read easy stor Nice simple stories for beginners in french.

    Si vous voulez apprendre le français, ce livre peut être utile. Il se compose de brèves histoires didactiques, chacune avec un synopsis et une liste de vocabulaire à la fin. Quelques histoires sont même émouvantes ou amusantes. Helpful little book to improve one's French. It consists of brief stories, each focused on a particular subject or concept, and they feature brief synopses and vocabularies at the end. A couple of the stories are somewhat funny or touching to boot, which helps.

    Excellent learning book I've really enjoyed this book, it contains some funny stories and also some emotional ones. It helped me review some of the basic terms in french and I've also learned a few new words and expressions. I like the way the stories/lessons are structured and that at the end of every one of them it highlights the new terms. I highly recommend it not only for beginners!

    Helpful in improving French vocabulary for sure, but the stories are generally boring and meaningless. Reading a normal short novel collection or fairy tales with a dictionary might have been just as useful but more fun.

    I haven't studied French since I was in school, and I wanted to refamiliarise myself with the language ahead of a trip. So the availability of this book was perfect timing. I was provided with a free copy of the book. This is my honest review. One thing that put me off initially was the stilted language in the (English) introduction.

So the availability of this book was perfect timing. I was provided with a free copy of the book. This is my honest review. One thing that put me off initially was the stilted language in the (English) introduction. If you're in the habit of reading introductions, don't let it put you off! The book includes 20 short stories. Each story has a glossed vocabulary and is followed by story summaries in French and English and a few questions (in French). I found the stories readable but not trivial to understand, which felt like the right level of challenge for someone (very) rusty with the language. I read the book on my Kindle. The glossed words were presented in bold. I can see why it was done, but I found it distracting, since my eye kept skipping over the rest of the text. Additionally, on my Kindle at least, highlighting even non-glossed words brought up a dictionary (presumably as part of the Kindle functionality) so the glossing didn't feel so necessary. Overall, a worthwhile read. I would certainly keep an eye out for other books in the series.
