des macarons Enjoy this simple, relaxing story about a picnic which gradually unfolds as vocabulary is introduced item by item to a musical accompaniment!

The story is about a picnic, but as it’s a very posh one with full table settings (including napkins!) it’s equally suitable for use in café or restaurant topics or daily routines. It's narrated by two lively native French speakers and divided into ten sections, although it will play through without stopping. There's an option to replay or skip to a particular section, pause the action at any time, or turn off the music.

The first 3 sections are available to preview. Subscribers can enjoy the complete story full screen.
