Learn about Stories

Stories are just that, a story that is written and narrated by native speakers of the language you're learning. You can listen and read along at the same time. Stories offer broader exposure to your new language in a wide range of entertaining pieces—read poetry, take a tour of a city or hear about a family's work on their farm.
