Easy French Poetry

(25 customer reviews)

I use simple, everyday French to explain the most famous French poems. Not only is it a great cultural subject but it’s a fantastic way to learn new vocabulary, verb tenses and improve your understanding of deeper conversations. French culture is deeply engrained with poetry and these audiobooks will teach you both formal and modern pronunciation.

    If learning is fun it is so much easier. Camille’s clear diction, explanations, and repetition make French poetry so interesting and useful. I am not able to learn the poetry because of my age but I still appreciate the beauty of it and pick up a few phrases which broaden my vocabulary and her love of nature brightens my life. How better to learn the names of flowers and birds than through poetry. The poems follow a natural sequence from the very ancient to the modern and are a good choice, not too long nor too complicated. This audio book is a good companion to her travel blogs and her fairy tales are really interesting even for an adult. Carry on Camille.

    Super bien expliqué et très clair. La poésie, pour moi, a toujours été un peu absconse … je la comprends mieux maintenant. Merci.

    The poems selected are wonderful examples to use for pronouncing French correctly and for learning about the various poets in the audio book. I thought the poetic analysis was very good too! Highly recommended!!

    It is really a joy to listen to this beautifully spoken French (and English). The blogs that I receive frequently are very interesting and helpful. I’m Dutch so I learn French and English at the same time.

    I recently added Easy French Poetry to my collection of audiobooks and have found it to be a really valuable resource. Not only is it enjoyable to hear and to learn about the poems, but as it’s delivered completely in French it’s a perfect exercise for sustained listening without interruption.
    Thank you all for your outstanding work,

    Just what I hoped to find, but didn’t really expect to.This is how I love to learn. It helps to improve my French, especially in video calls with a French friend where I can read the poetry aloud. The poetry is well read and the commentaries are very perceptive. Not at all stiff and academic. Just right for me; a poetry lover and student of spoken French.

    I have two other audiobooks from French Today and purchased this one because I love Camille’s clear and encouraging style and I knew her reading of these classics would be most enjoyable. Hugo’s Demain Dès L’aube (a personal favourite of mine) is so beautifully read and analysed! Likewise La Cigale et la Fourmi, Verlaine’s Chant d’Automne and so many others. Thank you for this beautiful audiobook.

    If you want to have fun learning French AND feel the satisfaction of listening to yourself speaking meaningful passages, try learning French poetry – along with the meaning behind it. Camille will get you started (and reveal unexpected twists and traps as well as nuance and idiomatic expression). The rest is up to you. In my case, I walk to work every day – and what a quiet time to practice and get the words and rhythm flowing. And I’ll guarantee you, there’s at least one person you’ll find at work who’s keen to hear you recite what you’ve gained each day.

    One more thing., wildly important. The complimentary emails that I get from Camille with French language tips, explanation and general guidance are easy to consume, timely and absolutely priceless. I really believe that these alone have more value than most of the weighty ‘Learn French’ books I’d bought from others in the past!!!!

    I have really enjoyed listening to this – Camille speaks beautifully clearly, explains the vocabulary and structure of each poem, and offers an interesting insight into the life of the author. I’m happy to recommend it.

    I’ve always wanted to be able to appreciate French poetry but found it rather daunting. When I found the French Poetry course on the Frenchtoday website I was delighted. I am lingering over the beautiful words and amazed at the wealth of information that the course offers. I have set aside a two-hour time in the morning to work on this course and the time flies. Not only am I learning French poetry, but I’m learning about the poets, the history and the people of France. It is absolutely the most interesting course I’ve taken and I find myself thinking about the poetry a lot during the day. Thank you to Frenchtoday for putting this course together. I couldn’t have wished for more. It is very well set out and easy with lots of explanations and background information. I’m looking forward to other Frenchtoday courses when I’ve completed this one.
