Improve your spoken French from home with 101 real-world conversations in simple, everyday French.

101 Conversations in Intermediate French offers a unique opportunity for learners to improve their spoken French skills from home. The book contains 101 authentic conversations in intermediate French that are designed to help learners move beyond beginner level and speak French in the real world. The conversations are between six French characters and are told in their own words, providing an immersive experience for the learners.

The book is centered around a gripping story of a mysterious painting that appears on the wall of the Louvre. Detective Claire Gentil is called in to investigate and soon discovers that the painting is full of clues representing five different crimes that will be committed somewhere in Paris by the end of the day.

Here's what you'll get:

1. 101 conversations in simple French, so you can learn the real French spoken in the street, understand spoken French with ease, and have French roll off your tongue more fluently;

2. Over 15,000 words of dialogue - an unparalleled resource that will immerse you in French, at a level you can understand, so you can learn real spoken French without getting lost or overwhelmed;

3. Real, daily spoken French throughout - it's as if we held up a microphone and recorded the exact words coming out of people's mouths - so you can learn the expressions that real people use on the street (not in textbooks). You'll sound more authentic when you speak and make French-speaking friends more easily;

4. Situational dialogues from typical daily circumstances, so you'll prepare yourself to survive realistic French encounters, in shops and cafes, and make meeting people and making arrangements second nature;

5. Conversations that are carefully written to be accessible for beginners (A2-B1 on the CEFR), so you can start to learn from real, spoken conversations, even as a beginner, without having to go through the rollercoaster of difficult conversations with strangers;

6. Each conversation is limited to around 15 lines of dialogue (150 words), so you can get that crucial sense of achievement and motivation when you finish each conversation, and say I actually understood all of that!

7. Word lists with English definitions in every chapter, so you can get instant translations of any difficult words and focus on reading and enjoying the stories rather than wasting time in a dictionary (eBook & paperback only);

8. Summaries of each conversation which contextualise each dialogue, so you can easily follow the plot and enjoy the story without getting lost;

The story is set in France and includes expressions that are typical in Parisian French. However, since the conversations use mostly neutral French, you'll have plenty to learn, whether you're learning the French of Canada, North Africa or any other French-speaking community.

Created by Olly Richards, internationally-renowned language teacher and author, 101 Conversations in Intermediate French gives you an education in real French that you won't find anywhere else. You'll be better prepared for using French in the real world, speak with more confidence, and take a giant leap towards fluency in French!
