Learn French with our books/ebooks

Why these ebooks?

One of the most difficult and challenging aspects involved in learning another language is gaining a real understanding of the day-to-day language. Many books accompanied with CDs offer listening comprehension exercises, but the scenarios or conversations are not always on situations that you would actually find yourself in on a daily basis when living in France.

In each issue of French Accent Magazine, we have written scenarios to integrate French grammar points and up-to date and useful vocabulary based on real life situations, and dictations. In order to train your ear to the sound of French, we have added audio links to each scenario so that you can listen to it repeatedly.

To give you substantial listening practice, we have compiled these ebooks which include most of the scenarios we have written since December 2006. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced French learner, you will learn the language used in different contexts such as having to speak with an Internet technician, or at the hairdresser, or with a potential employer while going through a job interview, or with a doctor, etc…

We have also created an ebook to help you improve your writing skills, a grammar ebook for the beginner learners, a bilingual cooking ebook, a ebooks serie for children who are starting to learn French and our latest audio e-book (or paper book) specially designed for people preparing a trip to France!

Short Suspense Stories in French with audio
For French Learners

(Intermediate and Advanced)

With Glossaries, Grammar Tips, Cultural Notes, Exercises
and Full Audio for Each Story

Special Introductory Price
E-book: only $5.99/5.90 €!!!

Paperback book: only $8.99/8.90 €!!!

French short storiesAs French teachers, we always like to recommend French books to our students, but most of them are too difficult for them to understand fully, which can lead to considerable discouragement or frustration. Therefore, we decided to publish a collection of short suspense stories with vocabulary glossaries sprinkled throughout the text, along with complete audio recordings of each story. The readers will have the option of listening to the entire story and, thus, improving their listening comprehension. The glossaries will make the reading more enjoyable as the student won't have to spend time looking up definitions in a dictionary.

Compared to other stories that have been published with the objective of helping students learn French, these well-crafted stories are more exciting, even suspenseful, to read because each of them ends with a surprising twist that will bring a smile to the reader's face.

Cook Like a French Person(pdf file)
New Edition 2017

Learn French while cooking!
33 bilingual
(French-English) traditional French recipes adapted to an international taste
(Note: e-book without audio)

Special Price this month!
Only $1.99/1.99 €!!

Bilingual recipesThis Updated edition presents a selection of 33 traditional French recipes, adapted to an international taste.
All the recipes in this new e-book were originally published, beginning in our e-publication French Accent Magazine. As French Accent is a family venture, all of them are creations of a member of the family.
Since most of us don’t usually eat meat, all of these recipes are mostly fish or vegeterian dishes, but many of them can easily be adapted to include meat or substitute meat for the fish in the fish recipes. Many can also be served as side dishes to accompany a main course containing meat.
The advantage of having all of these recipes published together in one easy-to-use document is that it is far easier to simply print out the pdf version of the recipe you would like to use, making it much simpler than using a large and heavy cookbook to place the recipe in a convenient place in the kitchen while you are cooking.
To make your life easier, all the recipes are bilingual, but we encourage students of French to read and use the French version also, and to take the opportunity to learn very useful vocabulary and expressions that are invaluable for those who travel or live in a French-speaking country.
Bon appétit!

35 French-English scenarios
, with audio links!

Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate level learner, the combination of learning grammar points and working on your listening comprehension will greatly help you raise your comprehension level.

To give you substantial listening practice, we have compiled in this book most of the scenarios we have written in the French French Accent Magazine since December 2006.

Do you find it difficult to understand when to use ‘passé composé' or ‘imparfait'? Or which polite forms do we actually hear in the real world? Are the time prepositions confusing? How do we place the negatives words? These are the type of grammar points (and there are many more) you will find in this e-book. Understand better how they are constructed and used through these lively scenarios!

Write Like a French Person

50 French "dictées" (dictations) with audio links!
Practice your French through dictées! Two levels : beginner and intermediate.

One of the best exercises to help those studying French improve their writing skills in the language is to do a “dictée” (dictation):

Listen to the passage that is being read, then check to see if you've made any mistakes. Learn from the mistakes you've made in view of avoiding making the same ones the next time.

As it is not always easy to find a French person who would have the time and the availability to dictate a French text to a student, we have, in every issue of our e-publication French Accent Magazine since its start in December 2006, published in most issues two dictées, corresponding to two different levels: débutant (beginner) and intermédiaire (intermediary). Each of them is associated with an audio link of a person reading slowly the text, exactly as a French teacher would do in a class.
In this e-book, we reproduce all of them, and we encourage our readers and students to try to do them, if they want to pursue the goal of writing, one day, like a French person.
If you click on the audio links below each dictée, you will be able to listen to the passage that will be read at a moderate rate and with each sentence repeated twice. You can, of course, listen to the recordings as many times as you like, but we recommend that you try and limit yourselves to two repetitions.
