20 AT-YOUR-OWN-PACE LESSONS ON MODERN SPOKEN FRENCH (AND HOW IT DIFFERS FROM TEXTBOOK FRENCH)
Module 01: Spoken French basics, it's a different language
Learn the first step of spoken French grammar: dropping the negation. In this module, we’ll also see how the e disappears. French swearing is an important part of the language too. Don’t use it: know it!
- Lesson 01: Remembering to drop the “ne” in most spoken French.
- Lesson 02: Les “tics de langage”, the peculiar things we say without even realizing it!
- Lesson 03: The disappearing “e”, swallowing the vowel sound in conversational French.
- Lesson 04: “C’est génial!” Showing enthusiasm in spoken French.
- Lesson 05: French Swearing, it’s important to understand them, even if you don’t use bad words yourself.
Module 02: Buying things, on the phone, and expanding your yes/no vocabulary
Conversations on the phone are scary. I’ll show you exact scripts to be confident on the phone. We’ll also cover the dreaded “y”. And you’ll learn nuances to go beyond the dry “oui” and “non”.
- Lesson 06: “Au téléphone”, speaking clearly and confidently on the telephone in French.
- Lesson 07: The tricky “y”, it’s hard to know where to put it, so learn some of my tips and tricks.
- Lesson 08: “Acheter”, buying things in French.
- Lesson 09: “Oui” saying yes and agreeing with expanded vocabulary.
- Lesson 10: “Non” saying no and disagreeing with expanded vocabulary.
Module 03: Sound more French, tips and tricks
We’ll see the different sounds of the “e” (oh… accents…) and la liaison. You’ll learn how to drop the formal “nous” and add little French words to sound more French.
- Lesson 11: Le “e”, how to pronounce this vowel in different ways.
- Lesson 12: Le “on”, using this more informal pronoun is a must for spoken French.
- Lesson 13: The verb “foutre”, used in many different ways this is an important verb to master.

- Lesson 15: “Les liaisons” how to know when and where to put them.
Module 04: polite French, logic words and slang
Spoken French evolves as familiarity grows. We often start with formal French to move on to slang and more relaxed vocabulary. Learn how to tell a story and use modern slang verbs.
- Lesson 16: “La Politesse” how to be pleasant and polite in spoken French.
- Lesson 17: Asking for corrections from French people: “Tu peux corriger mes fautes?”
- Lesson 18: “La logique” telling a story in a properly laid out manner.
- Lesson 19: “Les mots anglais” all of the English words used in everyday French.

Although I have passed B2 level at Alliance Française, I found I was lacking in everyday phrases i.e. street French. French conversational language isn’t found in French textbooks! Even grammar is different: sometimes it is constructed differently in conversational French. Thanks to Géraldine’s program, I try out some new phrases when speaking and with more confidence knowing that a French teacher, living in France, was guiding whole lesson.
Going to France in June and wanted to get my French as polished as possible. Plus, I really, really love Geraldine’s videos! I took the course to understand French slang and to have better comprehension of “la logique”. I’ve studied French for many years and even lived a year in France, and I never noticed that true French speakers drop the “ne” in spoken phrases that include “ne pas!” First lesson was a real revelation!”
I love languages, and I wanted to improve my french from high school with real, spoken french so I could travel abroad. I loved having the insight of a native french speaker and I was surprised by all the little subtleties about spoken french. Instead of learning lists of vocabulary, it’s more like nuances that a non-native would take a while to pick up on.

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 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.
