You can select a few words at a time and repeat the audio as many times as you need for comprehension, pronunciation and speech fluidity. The translation is available for any selection at a click.
Although the program comes with full text, audio files included are for the first chapters.
The files for the complete audio book just needed to be downloaded.
I have dowwnloaded both this and Le Petit Prince and was pleasantly surprised with both. Since I like to read, I thought a book would be a good medium to register French thought, and this is turning out to be was a great addtion to my tools for my self study of French. I think it would also be great in a language lab in an educational facility.
The program comes with full text so you can read along as you are listening. You can stop and select a small section of words, and repeat the audio as many times as needed for comprehension and pronunciation practice. The narrators are pleasant sounding and have clearly understood voices.
