French Book recomendation for Beginnner
I started learning French so that someday I could read "le petit prince" in French. Is there any easier book to read for practice?
Le Petit Prince is a classic and it is fairly easy to read in your beginnings of learning French. Le lion et l'oiseau isn't bad either with lots of illustrations and simple sentences.
I'm reading Le Petit Prince right now, and it's helping me to look up words I don't know, circle them, and write the definition in the margin. This way, I know I'm understanding the words. Also, I can go back and reread much easier and faster. My goal is to be able to read without looking up words, just inferring from context, but that's just too many words right now!
With a book in French - don't be afraid to read a chapter or section in English first, and then read the same part in French immediately after. That way you don't have to worry about getting lost and feeling like you have to look up every word or phrase that confuses you.
You can get used to reading whole paragraphs and pages without stopping. Afterwards you can look up particular words you want to understand.
"La Ville Souterraine" est une manifique livre. The best part is that it comes with a CD that includes the full audio of the text. This book is part of a series of books "lire en francais facile" from the publisher Hachette and are based off of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Even though this book is at an A2 level I found it to be easier to read than some books at an A1 and also easier than "Le Petite Prince". All of the recordings are top quality and even help with understanding the books due to the tone of the narrators voice. Bien sur, Duolingo stories are fun practice as well.
