Learn French with Stories: 7 Short Stories

To study with an audio support is one of the best way to learn the language, if you cannot go in a french speaking country are immerged yourself in the french language. While listening you don not need to memorize grammar. The audiobook contains different grammatical structure, and a lexicon summary related to each story. You will learn key phrases which are repeated, which is very efficient to learn them. It provides a clear understanding of the meaning of words and phrases, but also in the context in which they can be used. These phrases are introduced in a context of a paragraph, which help more to remember and to integrate deeply the language, because you can connect the dots and understand their meaning. There is as well a lexicon recap. It has a simple layout. It has different subject : greetings, the words related to the grocery shopping, the accent, and the popular tourists destination. To practice the oral there is both a slow and a normal version, it is very good because it is like a stage-by-stage training, to allows the brain to have the time to get the tricky sounds. I suggest you to listen carefully to each words of the phrases to train to seperate the sounds, and to get the rythm of the language. After reading these stories you can think about reading your first book in french on your own. You can just read the story, just listen to it or you can read and listen to it at the same time. There is a parallel french and english text.
