Easy French Poetry

5.00 out of 5
(31 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.

    This poetry is such a pleasant way to learn French and the audio is easily understandable and gives such a lovely insight into the rhythm of the language. I am so glad I decided to get this . . . a unique and joyful and less stressful to improve listening and in fact speaking skills.

    I love this book! It’s so interesting. I listen first a couple of times to improve my listening. I can usually understand most of it. Then I read it to make sure while listening to the audio again.

    I’ve only done the first two poems so far. So I’m looking forward to the rest of them.

    Camille reads the poems so clearly and analyses them line by line. Then gives a short resumé of the poet’s life.

    It’s such a good introduction to French Culture.
    And improving my aural comprehension in an interesting way at the same time. I highly recommend Easy French Poetry!

    Great resource! The analytic content is very insightful and enabled me to appreciate even more the poems Camille has chosen. Her voice is easy to listen to and her speaking pace is just right to read out loud along with her.

    They say the aim of art is to enlighten, entertain and educate and Camille has created a fabulous piece of art. I only wish there was a volume two!

    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.
