Barbe bleue

Barbe Bleue is a fairytale by Charles Perrault. These days it is probably not suitable for children . Listening to tales , though, is a very good way to learn a language and improve pronunciation. Pierre reads it really clearly and there is the text , podcast and an exercise on his site français avec Pierre. All of this supports language learning.

If you prefer something lighter then you can try La Princesse au Petit Pois on the Lire et Récréer site.


Blanche Neige

Blanche Neige is a story a lot of people know. You can get a sound version of it here which you can listen to online or download. It is read very well. There is a text version here. Even if you don’t understand all of the story then the practice of hearing and reading along is very good. It helps rhythm, intonation and fluency. The link I gave you has an English version of the story so you can cheat a bit!
