  2. Learn to understand and speak enough French to have a basic conversation, like asking for directions, telling the time, or ordering your lunch at a cafe
  3. Become more confident with your French, and actually want to use it
  4. Have an easy-to-follow, step-by-step learning plan, with lessons that you can complete in just 10 fun minutes a day

About Géraldine

Salut ! Moi c’est Géraldine Lepère.

I’m a French woman (Paris-born, now living in the Alps) with a passion for sharing my love for French language and culture! I started Comme Une Française in 2012 and have since helped more than 3,500 alumni learn to confidently understand and speak real, modern French through my paid programs – not to mention taught more than 5.7 million French learners through my weekly YouTube lessons.

Born to a French father and Mexican mother, I know the challenges and desire to blend into life in a foreign country. After two years of living in the UK, I knew that going beyond just grammar is essential to fitting in and feeling at home wherever you are.

If you love France and French life, I’m here to guide you, answering questions you wouldn’t dare ask about anything and everything French, so join me for learning and fun.

You’ve been following my weekly episodes for a while and now I’m happy to introduce you to my premium programs.

Enchantée !

HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL RECEIVE IN EACH LESSON

It’s easy and enjoyable to learn in this way. I’ve enjoyed learning a bit more conversational phrases, and I liked that each lesson offers multiple parts to practice: vocabulary, videos, etc. I know I will feel a little more confident when I visit France again.

It’s been many years since I learned French, and this course helped me believe I can re-learn it. In fact, it helped me know how to speak French the way it’s actually spoken, not just from a 35-year-old textbook. It was set up in a way that made learning easy and fun, and I loved the way each lesson was divided into sections with different videos for each. I feel more confident in speaking and understanding basic French in the way I need to be able to when I visit France later this year.

It is possible to learn French at a mature age! I’m 62, and this introduction has made me want to learn more and hope that I may be able to communicate in French one day. I can learn on my own time, and the ability to repeat the lessons at my discretion allows me to practice.

I have tried other online beginner courses, but the organization and content of your courses are the best. This is a “real” beginner course. Your lessons are very helpful with the nuances in everyday French, and I particularly like the length of each lesson as I learn better in shorter lessons. Now, I feel more comfortable each time I try to speak, and I can listen to each lesson over and over.

OUR 60-DAY MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE

I stand by my programs, just like a real-life teacher would, with the advantages of a normal purchase. In your city, if a shirt doesn’t fit, you take it back to the shop!

Good news. You have 60 days to go through all the lessons and see if the program works for you. So you can be sure that it’s up to your level, that you like my style of teaching, that your French is really improving.

If the program doesn’t suit you, email me or my team, ask for a refund and you’ll get 100% of your money back. No need to threaten, to plead or to send an official letter, just send an email to school@commeunefrancaise.com asking for a refund. If you’re super kind, tell us why so we understand what’s going on (maybe we can help?). But if you don’t feel like it, just say you want a refund.

We’ll close your access to the program and send your money back (yes, including the VAT if you live in Europe).

We are super dedicated to customer care and your happiness comes first. Always.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I'm very busy right now, how long do I have access to the program?

No worries because you have lifetime access to the program. So you can follow the program at your own pace and revisit the lessons before your next trip to Paris.

I’m a man and this site says "Comme une Française". Can I join?

Oh oui ! Comme une Française welcomes smart women and men. The content isn’t gender-specific . And already, 30% of the students are men. You'll find their testimonials below. Come on in!

Am I too old for this? Is this program only for 20-somethings?

Most of my students are women over 40—women in charge of their lives who know how important it is to learn and keep learning. Ages range from 25 to over 70—so you’re more than welcome. And between us, if you fear running into technical difficulties accessing the program online, fear not! I’ll be there to help if needed.
