Classic French Tales

Timeless French classics recorded with a modern twist!

What makes tales so great is that you already know the story: so they are easy to understand in French!

My version of the tale is extremely lively, sometimes even a big goofy. I tell the tales like I tell them to my daughter, it’s lots of fun.

I will also read – whenever available – the original version, from the 18th century. This is quite advanced French, however my version will have prepared you to a lot of the vocabulary, and will work as a bridge to help you conquer the original version.

It’s a great way for adults to learn more advanced, sophisticated vocabulary and verb tenses, and stay focussed through longer recordings.

All tales read by Camille Chevalier-Karfis.
