Complete Advanced French

The complete step-by-step course for advanced-level French with
practical writing feedback directly from a French teacher

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 the 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 so that they lead to frustration. Besides, most resources are incomplete, and you find you need two to three different learning materials for it to be truly effective.

Do you find yourself in this situation?

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.

Here's what students say about Complete Advanced French:

DAVID WRIGHT

Talk in French Advanced Graduate

"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."

LINDA MORLEY

Talk in French Advanced 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."

MICHAEL

Talk in French Advanced Graduate

"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 !"

Bonjour !

Welcome to Talk in French!

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

Drawing on my long years of teaching, I have 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 my careful analysis and fine-tuning of the learning methods I have used over the years.

Learning French is a daunting task but, in this course, you will discover how easy, enjoyable, and convenient learning French can be."

WHY JOIN THIS ONLINE COURSE?

Why wouldn’t I just...


Buy a book?


You can. I have published a few books and audiobooks on learning French myself that are featured here on Talk in French, and I know there are other great books out there for learning by yourself.

But it takes a good amount of time and self-discipline to read through each step of a language book and apply the method presented.

Plus, when you need to keep up with the rest of your life ㇐ a job, your family, daily tasks, and some kind of social life ㇐ it’s going to take much longer and a lot of self-discipline to evaluate your progress without anyone there to guide or help you.

Get a tutor?

Tutoring can be great. I used to help students as a tutor and would often see good and fast results. Especially once you find what specific parts of French you struggle with, it’s certainly one of the most effective ways to learn.

But it will easily cost you around $20-$40 per hour, which means moving through the entire advanced level can ramp up the cost quickly.

Use free YouTube videos or language learning apps?

Yes, there's certainly a lot of free material out there that's very helpful. I offer some of it on my YouTube channel and blog as well.

The drawback is that if you're ready to move on from the “introduction phase,” it’s up to you to sort through everything that’s out there and organize a structure with appropriate lessons that are right for you.

You’ll likely have to combine several different approaches and material and be your own judge about when it’s time to increase difficulty to keep moving forward ㇐ and figure out how to test your progress.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the course take to complete if I follow the schedule?

You'll hit the ground running and start speaking from day one with the speaking exercises inside the course. If you follow the basic requirement most students finish a complete course within 3 months by spending up to 30 minutes a day. If you decide to follow the most ambitious plan I designed (5 hours a week), you'll complete the course within 8 weeks.

What happens if I need to take a break or have some days/weeks where I can't study?

No problem. I realize things can happen in life where you won't be able to study as much as you'd like, so I offer lifetime access to any course you join. This includes access to any updates that I add in the future after you join.

Will I get any help from a teacher throughout the course?

Yes, I’ll personally correct your in-course writing assignments and give you feedback on everything from how you put your sentences together to your choice of words and grammar.

There's also a comment section inside each course where you can ask me about each lesson and you can always email me about any topic related to the French culture and language at: contact@talkinfrench.com.

What if I change my mind after joining a course?

I offer a 60-day money back guarantee. That means if it's completely different from what you expected or you don't see any progress at all ㇐ you have a chance to quit. I'll refund your money at any time in the first 60 days.

 

What if I find out I joined at the wrong level?

It doesn't happen often, but if you find the level you joined is either too easy or too difficult I will happily let you switch to another level (up or down), at no extra cost.

This is about you getting the best results, so I don't want you to struggle through a level that isn't right for you. (This is also covered by the 60-day guarantee.)

Any other questions you wonder about?

Don't hesitate to contact the course creator (which conveniently is me) if you have any questions about a course you're looking at. You can write to me at this email address: contact@talkinfrench.com.

Here's what students say about Complete Beginner French:

WILLIAM WATSON

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."

DAVID WRIGHT

Talk in French Advanced Graduate

"I particularly enjoyed the daily challenge..."

“I particularly enjoyed the daily challenge in the course, and found the length of each lesson just right to feel I was staying in touch with learning the language. The story lessons were very helpful too.”

LIS

Talk In French Advanced Graduate

"I definitely found that these graded lessons pushed me a lot further, and creating my own sentences became easier (and grammatically correct).

This course is great. I have been working on my school French for a year, getting ready for retiring to a house in France. I completed several other online courses and was looking for something more advanced.

The ‘graded essays’ are the best! I definitely found that these graded lessons pushed me a lot further, and creating my own sentences became easier (and grammatically correct). Amicablement!

I also love how often Frédéric shows alternatives to make the sentence sound more natural and conversation-based."
