Wonderful

These stories are fabulous. It is so helpful to have the context explained in English. The French isn’t translated directly, which enhances the learning experience. I find my attention to the French passages automatically increased simply as a result of the interplay between French and English. Beautiful, meaningful, enriching stories! A delight to listen to.
