I’m Frederic Bibard, the founder of

Originally from Paris, France, I spent over a decade teaching French abroad and developing the most effective approaches and tools that fit the modern student -- whether you're interested in passing an exam or driven by personal goals.

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.

"The writing exercises became the most useful and rewarding aspect..."

"There were several things that really impressed me about this course. First (and most important) is the practice actually writing essays in French, and having them corrected! I spent a huge amount of time on the writing exercises, and they became the most useful and rewarding aspect of this course. I cannot imagine how anyone finds the time to read and comment on these, but you have my heartfelt thanks."

  • Converse with native speakers with a degree of ease and spontaneity, and without any strain from both you and your conversation partner

8 weeks of lessons to master advanced French and become ready for fluency:

  • A structured learning plan that's easy to follow
  • A final test similar to the DELF certificate B2

Do I have to finish the whole 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, and most students have been able to finish the entire course within 3 months.

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.

This course is not for you if:

  • You’re not confident as an intermediate student already and don't look towards the last stretch before fluency
  • You want to spend less than 1 hour each week to study and practice
  • You don’t want an online program to help you master advanced French
  • You prefer extensive 1:1 tutoring
  • You want to keep using material that reinforce your comfort zone

This course is for you if:

  • You’re looking for the final confidence needed to become fluent
  • You want to get a fully advanced French by putting aside a minimum of 1 hour for practice each week
  • You want a comprehensive online course you can follow independently
  • You want to take advantage of practical exercises after each lesson and get personal feedback directly from me, to level up your French
  • You are committed to following a structured learning method
  • You want to master a better and more fluid French


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 gonna 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 an entire beginners level can ramp up quickly.

Use free YouTube video 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 yourself 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 it.

Here's what students say about Complete Advanced French:

"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 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."

LINDA MORLEY // 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 !"

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

"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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

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

If you follow the basic requirement most students finish a complete course within 3 months. If you decide to follow the most effective 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 something 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:

What if I regret joining a course?

I offer a 30-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 you at any time in the first 30 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 30-day guarantee).

Any other questions you wonder about?
