Nice and engaging stories to perfect your French

If you could sum up French: Short Stories for Intermediate Level in three words, what would they be?

Engaging, Informative, Enjoyable

What other book might you compare French: Short Stories for Intermediate Level to, and why?

as far as I'm concerned, I don't know any book I would compare French: Short Stories for Intermediate Level

What does Frederic Bibard and Mariem Nouni bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Frederic Bibard and Mariem Noumi brought the stories to life without altering the educational aspect of the book. A bit more expressions during the reading will make it perfect

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

This book was funny at parts and the stories were quite enjoyable

Any additional comments?

This book covers a lot of everyday life situations with simple stories easy to understand. My French is quite good but I was interested in this book because I was looking for a book to recommend to some friends that are looking to perfect their French. And after listening to this book I can now recommend it as I believe it is exactly what they need.The narration was really good. Having a male and a female voice is a nice touch.I highly recommend the audio book

Great and Helpful Book

The book concept is a very nice idea. The first 3 chapters (which are fully English) are very helpful though it is sometimes hard to tell the words that are being said because of the accent. The other chapters (which are mostly French) are read very nicely and clearly as well as at a fair speed. It is a very helpful audio book for people who want to teach themselves French at a higher level or enhance/improve on what they already know. It would be better if there was a little pause at the beginning of chapters so that, if you are continuously listening, you will know that you are on a new chapter. Also, the reader doing the vocabulary recap is very helpful as it is a repetition of certain words on their own and in sentences which are regularly used. Overall, this audiobook is very useful.

Great Way To Dive Back Into French

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a quick crash course in French. I hadn't spoken French since taking it as a class in high school, so reading this was the perfect way to recall everything I had learned while also teaching me a lot more! One thing that I especially loved was that words that I learned earlier in the book were used frequently later, so I never forgot them and also learned how to use them in new ways and contexts. I think that this book is perfect for people getting back into the habit of speaking or learning French, as well as people who are complete beginners.

What other book might you compare French: Short Stories for Intermediate Level to and why?

I haven't read other books in French quite yet, but I have been studying on Duolingo. I like this more because I can hear and practice pronounciations a lot better than on Duolingo.

Have you listened to any of Frederic Bibard and Mariem Nouni ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't, but I definitely will now! I really enjoyed listening to this book!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really, but I was really moved by how much I had learned and improved over the time of reading the book. I didn't know I would relearn my French skills so quickly!

Any additional comments?

Love love love love love love this!

I really enjoy this audiobook

If you could sum up French: Short Stories for Intermediate Level in three words, what would they be?

Catching, diverse, entertaining

Who was your favorite character and why?

The final ones, because the author included vocabulary in English-French for those words and terms a little bit more complicated.

Have you listened to any of Frederic Bibard and Mariem Nouni ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I did not

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

No, for me it is a book to listen in parts

Any additional comments?

it has very entertaining stories with an excellent narration that manage to get you trap in each chapter. If you are not very familiar with this accent like me, first it will be a little complicated to understand but after listening to the first stories you begin to understand a little more because of the clear and paused way the narrators have to speak.

Something that I appreciate a lot is the presence of masculine and feminine voices in the narration that achieves the objective of accustoming the listener to the different tonalities of the language.

For a non-native english speaker can be a little difficult to understand the instructions at first and it is because the narrator presents a strong French accent. In conclusion I can recommend this audiobook to all people who want to start tuning their ear to this language, or anyone who enjoys good stories in this fantastic language.
