Classic French Tales

4.97 out of 5
(76 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!

    What a treat to listen to these classic French fairy tales en français and spoken in Camille’s mellifluous tones! It’s great fun hearing stories that I know well in English and I very much appreciate that I am able to show or not show the simultaneous English text translation. I found myself leaving the translation hidden most of the time and only turning it on to check a word or a phrase. And, for the stories that I don’t know well, I can listen with the translation on and then listen on another day with the translation off, paying closer attention to how the scenes are described in French. The free downloadable app for my iMac makes it easy to control the playback of the story, allowing me to jump to a particular chapter, for instance. Bravo Camille and Olivier for this wonderful learning experience that is both ancient and dear to me and wonderfully new in how it is presented. Merci!

    Outstanding audio– clear pronunciation with a bit of drama to make the tales come alive. Can’t wait to share these with my granddaughter! Thank you so much for your very generous free offer during these challenging and tenuous times. You guys, and your program truly are the best!

    Well done and I appreciate the free access during this time. However at L2 in the French Today program I find these too advanced for me, especially when only using audio.

    There are many uses of tenses, here not yet studied at L2 and unfamiliar nouns and adjectives. The new words can be gleaned from following along, but that does not work for new tenses, which I find need to be studied methodically.

    We were reading several short French stories in a class at Aliance francais. I wanted to hear the prononciation and explanations and found this audiobook from French truly. It was exactly what I was looking for and has many short stories to hear and read.

    Poor ‘petit chaperon rouge’, and I always though she was rescued by a forest worker, well not in this original story! Very interesting. Very good audiobook!
