Free Stories in Multiple Languages - en español tambien!


Reading, at any age, is so important for continued learning!  Fortunately, many free resources have become available lately!  At the link below, you can choose a story at different reading levels and even different languages (en español tambien).  Do you only speak English?  It might be fun to hear a story in English and then hear the story again in a different language!  Do you notice any words that sound similar in both languages?  You can choose from English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese and Italian.

To access the free titles, just visit stories.audible.com from any web browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.).

The experience is completely free – no log-ins, credit cards, or passwords required. Just click, stream and listen.  Enjoy!
