We're talking language acquisition, French culture, language learning techniques, books, resources, and everything you need to learn French.

    No one cares how good your French is

    No one cares how good your French is

    I’m battling perfectionism everyday. In myself but also in my students.

    And you know perfectionism is a really perverse thing. Because it presents itself like a quality. And when we are children, we are pushed toward it too. So those of us who have to tendency to listen to the grown ups a little too well, end up as adults who are never truly satisfied with themselves. Who think we should have tried harder, and who only see where there is room for improvement.

    Why the French you learn and the French you hear are different

    Why the French you learn and the French you hear are different

    There comes a time into any learner’s journey when you realise the theory and the practice really are two different things.

    And this happens in almost all fields.

    But in language learning it’s usually quite difficult to deal with, especially when learning French.

    One day, you realise the French you are learning, and the French that natives speak, is… not the same.

    When is it ok to give up French?

    When is it ok to give up French?

    Grit - grit is probably the number one quality you need to succeed at about anything. Sticking up with things, keep working, hustling,…

    But it can be harmful, even in language learning.

    So when is it ok to give up?

    One historical event to understand French culture

    One historical event to understand French culture

    Today is French National Day - the 14th of July, le 14 Juillet.

    And I thought it was the perfect occasion to talk about one French historical event that you definitely need to understand, to understand France.

    And that’s the French Revolution.

    So sit back, and let me tell you a story of what makes the French, French.

    How to listen to French to understand as much as possible

    How to listen to French to understand as much as possible

    Let’s talk about how to listen to French.

    Because being able to hear French correctly is a skill that you need to develop before you can even try to pronounce things properly.

    It’s the skill that is going to:


    help you make sense of what people say
    teach you new words in context
    show you how French people really pronounce words
    And if you do it right, it’s the skill that is unlocking access to French people.

    Being able to hear and understand what people say is obviously crucial if you want to ever have a conversation with a French person.

    Now, depending on your level, if you are a beginner or an intermediate, or an advanced learner, you shouldn’t concentrate on the same things.
