French Self-Taught

Franz J. L. THIMM (1820 - 1899)


Part of a Librivox initiative to develop a free language-learning resource. This book is old, but the basics haven't changed too much. All the French content is spoken by native French speakers.

The book includes sections on vocabulary, nouns, adjectives, verbs and phrases, and will still prove useful. Some of the phrases are dated but hilarious. If you need a flannel petticoat, or to chastise your washerwoman, this book is definitely for you! (Summary by Ruth Golding)

French read by Michaël Cadilhac, Nadine Eckert-Boulet and ani poirier.
English read by Ruth Golding.
