Summary

There is a storyteller in you.
 
She doesn't care how old you are. She doesn't care if you're retired, semi-retired, nearing retirement or just over it. She doesn't care if you used to be a repairman, or an accountant, or a rodeo clown. She doesn't care how sure you are that it's too late to start something new.
 
There is a storyteller in you. And it's time you started listening.
 
My name is Ninie Hammon and I'm 72 years old. (If you say 72 years young, I will reach out from this page and punch you in the face.)
 
I started writing my first book when I was 58. Too late? Nonsense. In fact, it was the perfect time to start writing.
 
In this short little book, I'll do my best to show you that ...  - Retirement is the perfect time to start writing.  - Expendable time is the most valuable time there is.  - Technology sucks, but it also doesn't matter.  - Readers matter even more than you think.  - Community is the secret sauce on everything.  - Doing the thing is the most important thing.
 
And so much more. Or maybe just those things. But also stories! And tangents. So many tangents. And references only you will get.
 
There's even something in here for *gasp* people that aren't 72 yet. Or 52. Or even 32.
 
It's time to stop thinking about who you were before and consider who you can be right now. It's time to become a storyteller.

    Is conversational French turning a little too tricky for you? Do you have no idea on how to order a meal or book a room at a hotel?If your answer to any of the previous questions was ‘Yes’, then this book is for you!If there’s even been something tougher than learning the grammar rules of a new language, it’s finding the way to speak with other people in that tongue. Any student knows this – we can try our best at practicing, but you always want to avoid making embarrassing mistakes or not getting your message through correctly. ‘How do I get out of this situation?’ many students ask themselves, to no avail, but no answer is forthcoming.Until now. We have compiled MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED French Stories for Beginners along with their translations, allowing new French speakers to have the necessary tools to begin studying how to set a meeting, rent a car or tell a doctor that they don’t feel well! We’re not wasting time here with conversations that don’t go anywhere: if you want to know how to solve problems (while learning a ton of French along the way, obviously), this book is for you!How Conversational French Dialogues works:
     
    Each new chapter will have a fresh, new story between two people who wish to solve a common, day-to-day issue that you will surely encounter in real life.
     
    A French version of the conversation will take place first, followed by an English translation. This ensures that you fully understood just what it was that they were saying!
     
    Before and after the main section of the book, we shall provide you with an introduction and conclusion that will offer you important strategies, tips and tricks to allow you to get the absolute most out of this learning material.
     
    That’s about it! Simple, useful and incredibly helpful; you will NOT need another conversational French book once you have begun reading and studying this one!
     
    We want you to feel comfortable while learning the tongue; after all, no language should be a barrier for you to travel around the world and expand your social circles!
     
    So look no further! Pick up your copy of Conversational French Dialogues and start learning French right now!
