The Complete Advanced French Course

When you have been learning French for a while, your motivation may begin to wane. You may find yourself needing an extra push to face your lessons.  Or perhaps you procrastinate and move it to the next day… and the next, until you simply stop. Your current level has become your comfort zone and while you still dream of becoming fluent in French, it is slowly starting to move farther from your grasp. 

Being an advanced level French learner has its own set of challenges. Some find themselves stuck at upper intermediate or early advanced stage with no sign of additional progress. Some feel that they’ve reached a plateau and don’t know how to move forward. 

These problems often happen because of a lack of learning materials for advanced level French. Sure, there are plenty of books and online courses available but, as many learners can attest, these are either too easy so that learning becomes boring, or too difficult and complicated that they lead to frustration. Besides, most resources are incomplete and you would find you need two to three different learning materials for it to be truly effective. 

Do you find yourself in this situation? 

This Complete Advanced French Course Will Help You Become Finally Fluent in French

As an advanced level French learner, you need a thorough learning method that complements your needs at this point of your learning. You need structured, carefully planned, and specially prepared lessons that will neither bore nor frustrate you but, instead, offer enough challenge to develop and polish your skills in French.

You need a learning method that covers it all, thereby eliminating the need to have two or more learning resources simultaneously.

This Complete Advanced French Course is what you’re looking for. 

With 40 highly-intensive French lessons covering all aspects of advanced French including grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening, speaking, and writing, you will get a step-by-step course that is perfect for independent learners. 

Meet Your Instructor

This course is created by Frederic Bibard, the founder of top French website TalkinFrench.com. Frederic, a native of Paris, France, has spent more than a decade teaching French abroad. 

One of the things that struck him when he was teaching French is the limited range of resources that fully meet the needs of the busy, modern learner. Since then, he has made it his life’s work to remedy this, one French book and one French course at a time.

Drawing on his long years of teaching, he has selected the most effective approach and tools that will resonate best with the modern student--young and old alike. 

This course is one of the results of his careful analysis and fine-tuning of the learning methods he’s used over the years.

"What if I can’t study full time and finish the course in 8 weeks?"


The course is constructed in a way that you should have at least 1 hour a week to get something out of it, (I recommend 5 hours for the absolute best results). This way you’ll complete the entire level in about 8 weeks.

But don’t worry if you need to take a break or something is keeping you from finishing the lessons within the ideal timeframe. 

You get lifetime access so you can always move through the course at a pace that suits you best and return to lessons whenever you feel. Most students have been able to finish the entire course within 3 months.

And as an extra bonus and to make sure this program is still valid long after you sign up ㇐ you’ll have access to all future updates I make to keep this course a top French learning product ㇐ at no additional charge.  

The last time I launched an update was in February (2021) ㇐ it focused on daily speaking exercises. Before that, I rolled out another update in October (2020), that restructured the entire course based on feedback from previous students, to make it even better. I plan to keep developing the different areas even further in the future so this is not a course that gets lost in time.


After this course, you will be able to:

  • Conduct your daily affairs (business, entertainment, banking, booking appointments, etc) in French without much strain on your part.
  • Clearly express your thoughts, ideas, and opinions in French, when speaking and writing, and be able to defend these when the situation calls for it.
  • Understand and discuss complex text or abstract ideas in a clear and detailed manner. This includes technical discussions in your field of specialization.
  • Converse with native speakers with a degree of ease and spontaneity, and without any strain from both you and your conversation partner
  • Have a good command of French vocabulary to the point that you can understand French wit and implicit meanings of some words. You may also be able to grasp French jokes and even produce your own.
  • Create clear and detailed texts on a wide range of subjects, explain your viewpoints on some issues, and discuss the pros and cons of certain topics.
  • Develop your listening skills to the level that you can easily understand and even summarize information gathered from spoken French.
  • Read French publications (newspapers, magazines, books, blogs, comics), with only an occasional reference to a dictionary.
  • And so much more

Is This Course for You?

Do I have to finish the course within a certain timeframe?

The course is constructed in a way that you should have at least 1 hour a week to get something out of it, (I recommend 5 hours for the absolute best results). This way you’ll complete the entire level in about 10-12 weeks.

But don’t worry if you need to take a break or something is keeping you from finishing the lessons within the ideal timeframe.

You get lifetime access so you can always move through the course at a pace that suits you best and return to lessons whenever you feel. 

As an extra bonus to make sure this program is still valid long after you sign up - any updates I make in the future to keep this course a top French learning product - you’ll have access to at no extra charge.  

The last time I launched a massive upgrade was back in October (2020) and I plan to develop it even further in 2021. So this is not a course that gets lost in time.

Here's what our students are saying about The Complete Advanced French Course

"I came away with a much better sense of how to communicate..."

"I came away with a much better sense of how to communicate in writing, and, from that, with less apprehension about actually working on conversation (which is still a challenge). There are two problems I had in learning French that this course helped with:

1. I started to learn how to write in French. Learning a language requires creating sentences. 2. I learned how to use a number of sentence forms, verb tenses, and pronouns that I had not really used much before. I have the feeling now that I understand better a fuller range of how French grammar and verb tenses work. What I need now is more practice."

DAVID WRIGHT // Talk in French Graduate

"I feel much more accomplished and confident after taking this course..."

"This was an excellent refresher for me. The part I especially appreciated was the listening practice. I don't have the occasion to hear native French spoken and this was excellent practice.

I've always loved the French language. I'm not sure I could love it any more but I feel much more accomplished and confident after taking this course."


LINDA MORLEY // Talk in French Advanced Student

"100 fois grâce à ton cours..."

"J’adore le français depuis l’âge de 8 ans. À mon anniversaire le 20 février, je viens d’avoir 66 ans, et le français me plaît encore plus chaque année, x 100 fois grâce à ton cours. Je ne peux pas imaginer une vie sans mon apprentissage perpétuel de la langue qui durera jusqu’à la fin de mes jours !"

MICHAEL // Talk in French Advanced Graduate

"chaque leçon du cours est d’une durée convenable pour l’utilisation quotidienne..."

"J’ai beaucoup apprécié ce cours. Il m’a aidé à me souvenir les bases de français et il m’a aidé à améliorer. En outre, je voudrais rajouter que chaque leçon du cours est d’une durée convenable pour l’utilisation quotidienne. Le mélange d’enregistrement audio et les exercices assez interactifs est utile. Merci beaucoup."

WILLIAM  WATSON // Talk in French Advanced Graduate
