"Last year I traveled to Paris. I had a basic knowledge of french learned in high school. Being there I realized how important is to learn to pronunciate correctly in order to communicate on a daily basis. Since I came back I've been searching for a way to learn more but until now I've only found books that felt very boring and were meant for beginners.
This book is the perfect combination of pronunciation and grammar. To be able to hear the words and to see it in paper at the same time is a great way to learn every aspect of a lenguaje. You can also hear the audio portion any time, when your doing other things, to assimilate the sounds easily.
Through the stories we have access to knowledge in a fresh and fun way. They are very entretaining and help you think every word placed in context. The larger vocabulary recaps at the end and the repetition of words interlaced with their English equivalent helps a lot to reaffirm their meaning and to remember it.
After a few listens I felt much more confident whit my french and really eager to hear more. Completely recommended!"
Really useful for beginners
It was interesting for me as I had never tried to listen to audio books especially for studying.
This book is a good way if you want to improve your french. I have studied french at school for almost one year and this really helped me to remind myself some really important basics.
Of course, I would listen to it again and again because there is always something new to understand and learn from it!
