Ever Felt Like You’ve Hit the “Intermediate Plateau” & Aren’t Making Progress in French? 😟

You’ve come a long way since “Bonjour” and “Merci.”

You’re chatting with others, and surprising yourself with just how much you've picked up.

But lately, it feels like you're running on a treadmill – moving, but not really getting anywhere.

Ordering at a bistro? Mostly a breeze. But the moment someone brings up that recent news story or documentary they watched? Blank.

And let's not forget work. A Skype call with a French colleague starts on a formal note…

But as the conversation takes a more casual turn, they dive into their natural, expressive French.

Accents from various regions, slang from the streets of Montpellier or Nantes – it’s like they’re speaking a different language!

Before you know it, you're back to speaking English, missing out on the authenticity of the interaction.

Your vocabulary learning seems stagnant, and you struggle to formulate more complex sentences that sound natural.

Between juggling work, family time, and that never-ending list of chores, carving out hours for French classes seems impossible.

It’s Not Your Fault You’re Struggling

Bonjour,

I'm Frédéric 👋🏼

In 2013, I started Talk in French out of a passion for French and a wish to teach others.

I’ve discovered that most people take years to break through the “Intermediate Plateau.” They struggle to sound more natural & authentic.

For them, textbook French doesn’t translate to the nuanced rhythms of everyday language. Slang sounds like a different language, and diverse accents throw them off balance.


This happens because of two reasons:

One: Most people don’t have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the French language.

Two: Most courses out there don't offer feedback from native French speakers.

Without feedback from native speakers, it's like being lost in a maze: you know you're close, but you can't find the path forward.

It’s a bit of a bummer, right? You’re not a total newbie, but you can’t quite move to the “proficient” zone either.

So I created a solution.

I decided to create a step-by-step, comprehensive French program that allows intermediate learners to get personalized feedback from native speakers.

So you can amplify your vocabulary, refine your pronunciation, and master the authentic rhythm of the language…

And you won’t have to waste years to move past the “Intermediate Plateau.”😉

Your course managed to keep me going...

"My story with French is a search with a lot of frustration and some joy. But your course has managed to keep me going, and this has to do with the system of the graded essays and the way you structure your lessons, and the useful listening material. Your course, for my taste, is not overloaded. This is a great accomplishment!

Getting targeted feedback and corrections makes all the difference...

"I’m loving it. Getting targeted feedback and corrections makes all the difference compared with other online platforms. As they get harder, I’m spacing out the lessons to give me a chance to revise what I’ve learned. I’d like to think my pronunciation was improving too but won’t know that until I get to France"

I had a real problem interpreting the spoken word...

"Although I could read French and be able to translate most articles, I had a real problem interpreting the spoken word, which in turn inhibited me from starting a conversation. The ability to listen to conversations at various speeds helped me to attune my ear better and also helped me realize that I didn't have to translate every single word to get the gist of what people say."

"I have already experienced an improvement in the level of my French comprehension. In particular, my understanding of when to use which past tense has really improved.

I appreciate being able to go back over previous lessons and refresh some of the knowledge I have picked up.

Spoken examples in each module are useful, as understanding spoken French was always an area I found difficult. I also participate in online French class, and now feel quite comfortable describing past events to the teacher and other students.
