Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White... you know them all, don't you? That's why I picked this topic. Because you do already know the story, it is that much easier for you to understand in French. There will be 2 versions of the same tale, whenever possible; my own version, like I tell it to my daughter, which comes with a full transcript and translation available on FrenchToday.com, and the original tale, often dating back to the 18th century, hence quite more challenging. Go to FrenchToday.com for more details and more Classic French Tales and audio material (from the author of LearnFrenchInBoston.com)
||Cendrillon - Original Tale by Charles Perrault||This 18th century tale is going to be harder to understand, but I do my best to enunciate, I read clearly and a bit more slow than normal, and it should be feasible, specially if you studied my easier version of the tale.||1 9 08||Free||View In iTunes|
