Brilliant opportunity to improve your French

Le petit prince audiobook provides a brilliant opportunity to improve your ability to understand spoken French. I am at an advanced level in French and found it incredibly useful for improving my comprehension skills, in addition to extending my vocabulary and I would highly recommend this book to French learners at all levels. The book would also be perfect for children who are starting to learn French, providing a more enjoyable learning experience. As an audiobook, it is easy to learn how to pronounce words and that is something which is lacking in the print version as it is very difficult for new learners to know pronunciation just from reading in French.

Great story, well narrated, Great Idea!

Would you consider the audio edition of Le petit prince (The Little Prince) to be better than the print version?

Considerably. It is very difficult to know how if the French is pronounced correctly without knowing french, or without guidance. Having such a well narrated story was very useful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The little narrator of the story was my favorite rather than any particular character because I like the way everything was described.

Which character – as performed by Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker – was your favourite?

This is the same question as above

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I generally prefer to read in 30 minute intervals though this is a matter of personal preference.

Any additional comments?

A very interesting idea for a book. I was not expecting to read a book about exploration with so much surprises and adventure. My Children loved it!

Really enjoyable audiobook

As a speaker of French, I would definitely listen to this again due to the entertaining way in which it is narrated and the vocabulary used.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how imaginative some ideas in the text were.

Which character – as performed by Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker – was your favourite?

It would be too difficult to choose just one! All of the characters seemed fascinating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I had the time, I would have loved to listen to the whole thing at once.

Any additional comments?

Would highly recommend this audiobook for both beginners and confident French speakers.

So much better as an audiobook!

Would you listen to Le petit prince (The Little Prince) again? Why?

Absolutely, as listening to this book helped me an incredible amount in terms of my pronunciation in particular.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how inspiring the story was. It lets us experience the world through the eyes of Petit Prince - with honest and pure intentions.

What about Aurore Belle and Shanna Stoker's performance did you like?

The presentation of characters was excellent and the story was easy to follow thanks to their clear diction, which I found extremely useful.

Did you have an emotional reaction to the book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It certainly gave me a smile and a warm, tingly feeling!

Any additional comments?

I studied French back in high school for a year, and have been looking to brush up my skills for some time now. Boy am I glad I came across this book! The length of the story, the difficulty level, the usage of grammar, conjugation and typical aspects of common French dialogue are all present in this book, making it the full package for me.

Fantastic

Where does Le petit prince (The Little Prince) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First, I wouldn't listen to an audiobook for no reason, and this one really improved my pronounciation.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Le petit prince (The Little Prince)?

When he draws a "hat" and explains how we don't see what he actually meant the drawing to be.

Any additional comments?

It helped me so much to get used to the French accent, especially because the book itself is enjoyable so if you need to improve you language skills this is for definitely for you.

Really helpful and very good story!

I have been studying French the past few years, but not so much lately, this was a great listen and refreshed my French, very easy to listen to and pick up what is being said, being able to hear the same words said multiple times really made sure I now know how to pronounce them, which is very helpful!
The story itself runs very smoothly and is really great to listen to!
