Alvin et Mimi
(Alvin and Mimi)
A small squirrel moves into the neighborhood and disturbs a cat's peaceful life...
This book is a collection of five short stories, inspired by the two rascals in my back yard. It is aimed at intermediate students to help you deepen your knowledge of French. The sentences are simple, using everyday vocabulary. Each chapter is accompanied by a list of the harder words and expressions to help you understand the text without the use of a dictionary. The complete English translation is included, so that you can double-check your understanding.
Always learn new words in a sentence, preferably in a sentence that relates to your experience, as it is a lot easier to commit them to memory that way.
The short stories are written in past tense, helping you practice the passé composé, the imparfait, and the plus-que-parfait in an easy way. You will also find a few conditional and subjunctive forms, although they do not represent the main grammatical focus of the text.
This book is not accompanied by audio. However, the recording of the first story is available below.
