Another great book from Dylane, in short, if you liked the first book of short stories by Dylane then volume 2 is another must buy. The short stories will allow you to practice your reading skills, the free audio will help you improve your listen skills and the long-form questions after each stories will help you improve your writing skills so 3 of the 4 core skills are covered in this one book.
Great Teacher

I have the first book and I am still reading through it, I really like the stories and the exercises afterwards along with the audio. I was excited to see her come out with a second book. I have glanced through it and downloaded the audio, so I am ready to keep moving forward with my French learning.

This book continues where Dylane's first "French Short Stories" book left off. While enjoying listening to & reading each story, one acquires rich vocabulary (plus all the other goodies) in context, as well as the ability to practice proper pronunciation with the aid of the downloadable audio. Dylane, your work, time & talent to provide us with quality learning/acquiring materials is greatly appreciated.

I have been studying French with Dylane for a couple of years and I have purchased everyone of her study books. She has been instrumental in keeping me motivated to learn French and I have come so far in my journey. This latest book of Short Stories is a perfect way to test ones knowledge and the blessing for me it uses everyday French language. The fact I understand it all, and for the most part, i answer all the questions correctly is a testament to Dylane's teaching skills. She understands what her students need to progress. I really recommend this book to any beginner!

Book two is helpful in getting one familiar with hearing French spoken. There is no quick way, but I have found reading and listening to this book with the help of Hugo French in three months is helping.

After thoroughly enjoying Volume 1, I was thrilled to discover "French Short Stories: Volume 2" by Dylane Moreau. I opted for the Kindle edition and found it to be an equally captivating and educational read, designed to enhance French language skills for beginners and intermediates. Pros: Well-Crafted Stories: The book comprises 30 new stories, each succinct (about 4-6 paragraphs) and covering a range of relatable topics like travel, friendship, and family. This makes the learning process enjoyable and practical. Bilingual Format: Each story is followed by an English translation. I try to challenge myself by not referring to the translation unless absolutely necessary, which greatly aids in improving my comprehension skills. Effective Learning Tools: The inclusion of a vocabulary list, comprehension questions, and short answer exercises at the end of each story is immensely helpful. They ensure not only understanding of the content but also retention of new words and phrases. User-Friendly Approach: Similar to the first volume, this book maintains a clear, concise, and learner-friendly format, making it accessible for those at beginner and intermediate levels. Progressive Learning: By dedicating just 15 minutes a day to reading a story, I've noticed significant improvement in my French vocabulary and overall language comprehension. Cons: As of now, I have no negative feedback. The book has met and exceeded my expectations as a language learning tool. In summary, I highly recommend "French Short Stories: Volume 2" by Dylane Moreau to anyone looking to improve their French in an enjoyable, efficient, and structured way. It's a delightful blend of entertainment and education, ideal for both beginners and intermediate learners.
