I am a lower intermediate French learner trying to introduce reading into my program to accelerate my french learning. The problem that I am facing however is that fact that most French books seem to be written in Le Passe Simple which is a tense that is redundant to spoken French. While I appreciate the need to understand this tense eventually to be able to appreciate French in its fullest I am still struggling to fully grasp the spoken tenses and not ready to add an additional (“unnecessary“) tense to my load as well as, more importantly, deprive myself the opportunity to learn the tenses that I really need to learn. So I come here seeking advice on where I can find a selection of books written in “spoken French”. I imagine that I am not alone in this scenario and most beginner or intermediate learners want to focus on the spoken tenses when choosing their reading material. Any advice is appreciated. Merci!
