Classic French Tales

4.97 out of 5
(77 customer reviews)

Fairy tales have been used for centuries to build up children’s vocabulary and teach French verb tenses, pronouns, linking words…

Here is my own lively rendition of these eight very famous French tales. I tell them here using relatively simple French, in a very lively way, the same way I told them to my young daughter, the same way my mother told them to me. Each tale comes with a French transcript and English translation.

Fairy Tales are a fun and enticing way to practice French for children and adults alike!

    This is the best audio I could find for my daughter who is learning French for the first year in high school. She’d had some French, and this was perfect as it has different speeds one can listen to the same story, and also offers the familiar fairytales that she can listen to repeatedly until she understands them better. Perfect for building vocab and listening comprehension! As a French teacher, I give this audio 5 stars!

    Great value. Extremely resourceful.

    Camille’s versions of these stories and her voice-acting talents make the tales enjoyable and easy to understand.

    Even in just a few months, my French conversational skills have much improved thanks to Camille and Olivier.

    I would need a thick notebook to describe how superior the courses and the teaching method of French Today. With time, I gradually purchased all French Today’s audiobooks after a thorough research and after several trials of many other courses.

    Briefly, all of Camille’s and Olivier’s courses are of great value and they are the best that I could find. Camille seems to understand all the errors and confusions that French learners could make and addresses them timely, and she clarifies all my questions as if she were my private professor.

    All French Today’s audiobooks are my favorite and it’s difficult for me to rank them in order of preference. It’s all depending on the level and the effort of the learners.

    I appreciate being able to download all books to all my devices since I use both PC and Mac. The best part is to be able use the French Today app on my mobile phone since I have more time to listening using my phone than sitting by the computer. Olivier’s technical skills in providing this features places French Today learning program above all others.

    Interesting and useful and recommended to others. I play them last thing at night, where they are just the right length.

    Marvellous!
    Beautifully spoken classic tales. As a former teacher of French I really appreciate quality, and this is quality. Perfect for me, and perfect for my grandson, who is being brought up bilingually.
    Thank you French Today.

    Such a good idea to put these tales that we already know into simple French. Camille’s interpretations are excellent and it is an almost effortless way to learn some new vocabulary and be entertained.

    I loved reading these classic French tales. They are a pleasure to read and so clever to have a translation after each paragraph. I made myself read each paragraph first and then checked the translation to see if I was right! (Not always)!

    As Ms. Camille said, listening, sometimes reading along with the recording is invaluable to learning French. I am a teenager who is currently in the A2-B1 level and I found that although these stories had unique words, they really got me used to hearing French, especially in such an engaging manner. I could not be more happy that they released it for free, because I would not have otherwise been able to access this material. If you are thinking of experiencing classic storytelling (in French), definitely download it for free if you can. It is helpful to listen to in the morning, right before bed, or even while taking notes on new phrases and pronounciations… which is really helpful, as French is my fifth language and when there are all these language structures jumbled in my head, someone like Ms. Camille is here to save the day! Thank you so much for this material… I hope some more free content might be available sometime :)
