Your introduction to real, authentic spoken French

You've never learned spoken French like this before!

Created by popular demand from the Comme une Française community, “Spoken French Essentials” covers the spoken French foundations that every French learner needs, no matter how long they’ve been studying French.

Spoken French is very, very different from the French that you learned from those dusty high school and college textbooks many years ago. This program introduces you to those key differences in a clear, easy-to-understand way.

You can think of it as a “fresh start” in your French learning journey, so that you can “forget” your wrong assumptions about spoken French and learn to speak it the right way.

I created this program to give you a comfortable, engaging, and fun way to refresh your spoken French. In just 10 minutes a day for 30 days, I can promise you’re going to learn modern spoken French that STICKS… and it won’t feel like schoolwork.

This program isn’t just “French 101”. It focuses on the foundations of speaking like a true, authentic French speaker. With “Spoken French Essentials”, you will:

  1. Learn the correct pronunciation when saying even simple, common sentences, so you sound less like a learner and more like a confident French speaker;

  3. Learn how to express yourself in French the way real French people do
  4. Become more confident with your French, and actually want to use it!

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 courses, but the organization and content of your courses are the best. 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.

Spoken French Essentials is for you if...


What level of French is this program for?

Spoken French Essentials is suitable for both complete beginners and more intermediate learners who missed out on learning the foundations of spoken French. Even if you have a more advanced level of writing and reading French, this program is for you if your spoken French still feels rusty. Inside, we'll focus on the Spoken French Essentials that every French learner needs, no matter how long you've been studying French. The majority of my students and the people who watch my YouTube videos would benefit greatly from this program, even if they’re not “brand new” to French.

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!

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.

What if I have questions? What if I need help?

We keep an eye on each of our students. We know how tricky computers can be so if you need any technical help accessing the program, or with any email, just ask. My team of Customer Care Superheroes will come back to you, in no time. Anytime, as many times as you need.

For your questions about the lessons, use the comment area of each lesson and you'll receive my personal answer to clear a point or get more explanations on the topic.

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.


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 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.
