A fun way to study with lots of useful vocabulary!
I’ve been studying French on my own for a few years, and when you’re learning a language on your own without a person to practice speaking and listening with (like your tutor would be), good audio materials are crucial. Otherwise, it’s a waste of time. I found this audio-book very helpful in that aspect. It was a great idea to have both female and male readers for same stories, as taking pronunciation after a male when you’re a female and vice versa makes it a bit uncomfortable. Maybe, it sounds crazy to someone, but that’s how it is for me. I want to say a special thanks to the author for having the vocabulary part voiced as well. It saved me quite some time, as I didn’t have to look up new words in a dictionary. I rate it top and I would recommend it to other people studying French, for this material has plenty of everyday use vocabulary. Not mentioning the stories are fun to listen to.

Great for REFINING your French skills!
This book is very well formatted for someone looking to improve their French oral and listening skills. With the stories provided in different versions with normal and slow speed narration, it is perfect for bettering your understanding of French pronunciation, as well as practicing your own pronunciation as you follow along. Also, with the two different speakers, you will improve your listening comprehension skills as you hear the same content spoken by different French speakers.
Overall, a nice way to REFINE your French skills. I would not recommend this to beginners who may find themselves confused or future tourists seeking to learn a few phrases before their travels.
