Learn French with Stories for Beginners Volume 2 by Frederic Bibard

I took two years of French in high school 30+ years ago and wanted to brush up on it for a trip to Quebec, Canada, this summer. After reading Mr. Bibard’s book, I found it easy and practical to use and also found the audio files to be especially helpful.

I was able to pick up the language again after so many years of not using it by using the short stories and new vocabulary words highlighted in each of them. I especially found the audio files to be most helpful since I will be speaking more with people face to face instead of reading the written word. The audio files were easy to download from both my PC and my Amazon Android App and the files were very clear and audible.

If that wasn’t enough, I also found a link ( to a free French learning package in my eBook that has a collection of free resources that will help me learn French must faster, and Mr. Bibard also has a Facebook page at with tips and information about interesting French topics such as French cuisine and of course, more new French vocabulary words.

In all, I hope to become more fluent in French before I leave for Canada in late July and I think this tool will assist me significantly in that goal.
