Say It with... a French Accent

A 90 pages e-book with French-English Scenarios of Daily Life in France, Vocabulary and Grammar Tips with Audio Links

Why this book?

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. 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 in this book every single scenario we have written since December 2006. 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… 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.

How to start?

Download the pdf book to your computer. Then you can either read it on your computer or print any pages you wish. To listen to the French audio files, you need to be connected online. They can also be downloaded in an MP3 format for Ipods or other MP3 players.

How to use it?

If you are learning French on your own, we would suggest that you pick a scenario of interest to you and follow the following 5 steps process:

1) Listen to the scenario without reading it in order to try to understand as much as you can.
2) Then, listen to it while reading the scenario. Pay attention to the sound of every word and try to figure out the meaning of the conversation.
3) Listen to it one more time without reading it in order to try to recognize some words that you could not identify the first time you read it.
4) Then compare it to the English version.
5) Once you have understood the meaning of every sentence, listen to it again in order to focus once more on the sounds of the syllables and to pay attention to the liaisons in between words.

For the vocabulary sections, we would suggest that you repeat every single word out loud.

You will need the last version of Acrobat reader to read the e-book. If you don't have it, download it for free here:
