Ready To Learn The French Language quickly and in a practical way with exciting short novels?
It is no secret that language proficiency grows through practice. The more you practice a foreign language, the more comfortable you will become with it. For beginner French speakers, it is important not only to expand your vocabulary, but also to build confidence in your ability to speak, read, and master the language.
The 21 captivating French stories in this book (I have included one bonus story at the end) have been carefully crafted for new French speakers to help with learning new words and phrases, while also strengthening your confidence by reinforcing what you already know. Did you realize that you are already prepared to read short stories in French? Many of us have spent so much time repeating sentences and conjugating verbs while studying a new language that we haven't realized that we can assemble that knowledge to read and understand entire stories.
So, how should you use this book? It is best to start at the beginning, as the stories in this book will get progressively more sophisticated. Each story comes with a series of questions in French to gauge your comprehension of the story, as well as a glossary of some new words or terms that were introduced in that story. If you have trouble understanding any of the questions in French, refer back to the glossary for help. Words and phrases in the questions that could be confusing are defined in the glossary as well.
Each story is also followed by a short synopsis in English for readers who want to make sure they have understood the story's meaning. We recommend that you read each story—using the glossary definitions if necessary—and then answer the questions. You should refer to the English summaries of the stories only after you have answered the questions. The summaries are a great way to check your answers and determine how well you have understood the material, but it is important to try challenging yourself to understand the French.
