French Stories

Build up your confidence in French, and learn about France and French culture in the context of French stories you can actually understand. 

Most of our free French stories are French/English bilingual stories: they come with an English translation and are written at an intermediate/ upper intermediate level of French. 

What if I only want to read the story in French?

Most of our French stories have a hide/reveal English translation button in the bottom right corner of the page. If you just want the French practice without the option of “cheating” with the English, just press the blue button!

Will I enjoy your French stories if I am a French beginner?

Of course you will! French Beginners will still enjoy the story thanks to the English translation. Besides, since the stories are mostly written at an intermediate level, the gap is not too high and you may even be surprised at how much you understand.

What If I don’t speak French at all?

You don’t need to speak French to enjoy the English translation. Francophiles will discover France off the beaten path and dream of France with the gorgeous pictures.

Do your bilingual stories feature audio recordings?

Some stories feature a French audio recording. Most don’t. If you would like to listen to French stories with audio recordings, I suggest you check out my French audiobooks.

Since we have over 150 free French stories to choose from, I’ve presented them as a list for your convenience. Bookmark this page and come back often!

Can You Understand Today’s Spoken French?

It’s not just slang. The French everybody speaks in France today is NOT the overly enunciated, extremely formal French usually taught to foreigners.
