This won’t make you fluent
Actually, it won’t make you close to fluent.
Then again, you didn’t come here because you’re looking for fluency … at least not right away.
While we can’t make you fluent in 7 days, we can do something else. Something I’d argue is equally exciting and probably almost as impressive.
Something so many students take forever to figure out (some spend months studying before doing this, if not years).
I’m talking about starting to speak French.
Hold on. What kind of witchcraft is this? Jamais de la vie!
“Don’t you need to know a ton of background before you’re ready for conversations in French?”
Many students feel this way, and they love to think that French is more complicated than it needs to be.
These students live in a beginner's illusion.
There’s a common fallacy in the French language community that you can’t start speaking until you reach a certain level.
In reality, it's just because these people overcomplicate the situation and pile wild expectations on top.
They think you need perfect grammar, flawless pronunciation, and vocabulary the size of a dictionary before you can even think about talking to native speakers.
Because of their conviction, they insist on spending all their time learning “background stuff” with Duolingo, French Podcasts, YouTube channels, etc. – even if none of those have helped them have a single conversation in French.
It’s like they caught a French language version of Stockholm Syndrome.
I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with spending time on resources like Duolingo, but you can spend ages learning “background stuff” and never make it to your first real French conversation.
Then when you finally talk to a native speaker for the first time, you realize you didn’t have to spend so much energy getting the perfect background knowledge.
Think about it this way…
If you suddenly moved to France, would you spend months in solitary before trying to talk to anyone?
Of course not. That would be ridiculous.
You’d more likely try your best to engage in conversations because being alone and isolated would be much worse than the mistakes and embarrassments you’d make in French.
The problem is that most French students don’t learn in a context even remotely similar to this. So they want to use most of their time on “background stuff” because it’s comfortable.
That’s the grand illusion in a nutshell.
You don’t have to accept these terms.
The biggest part of being ready to speak isn’t about how much French you know – it’s about how much courage and confidence you have in what you know
Of course, you need some foundation, but it’s much less than you think.
It’s just that you got all tangled up in your affection for this language.
It happens, and you wouldn’t be the first one.
Like any francophile or French student who started a love affair with the French language, you know that it can be an overwhelming partner.
One second you feel like you could stay in its warm embrace forever, caressed by the sweet music and romantic sounds you discover with each word.
The next moment, your poor French soul is pulled in opposite directions, tearing you apart.
Tormented by tongue-twisting pronunciations, math equations when you count, people speaking so fast you might as well be zip lining at 100 mph trying to pick out words zooming by – and grammar confusion so diabolic and convoluted you’re wondering if it’s a conspiracy.
Ahh, l’amour français.
You need expert guidance to keep your relationship with this language from spinning out of control and into frustration.
There’s a good chance we can help you make this relationship work if you are here for one of these reasons:
- You don’t have much time to learn French before you want to use it (or before you need to use it).
- You took classes before, perhaps in school, but never really got what you wanted out of it (let’s be honest, very few people did back then).
- You’ve been doing some Duolingo here, a few YouTube videos there, but in reality, it would be so sweet if you could start speaking in full sentences instead of trying to assemble disjointed words that don’t make sense.
Either way, you don’t have months. You might have weeks.
Potentially only days…
You’re in luck because that’s exactly the situation this crash course is for.
Of course, the time limits how far we can get.
You might not become a silver-tongued conversation connoisseur, but you can start speaking French in the most basic and beautiful sense of the language – and a whole lot faster than it would take you to catch a glimpse of every art piece at the Louvre on your next vacation.
(Some estimates claim that it would take 200 days if you spend 30 seconds with each art piece, but Mona Lisa won’t teach you French.)
This course will get you speaking in just 7 days.
We’ll equip you with a rock-solid repertoire of basic French that’ll impress native speakers and make your francophile heart swoon and grow hungry for more.
Even crazier, you’ll be speaking in sentences that you formulate from your own French ability (even if they’re basic). Not something from a rehearsed script.
How thrilling is that?!
The French Crash Course is a one-week fast track where you go from an overwhelming and confusing love affair with the language to having your first basic conversations.
Warning: this might get you into (fun adventurous) trouble.

What Your Time Will Look Like Inside Our French Crash Course
It’s an intensive course, and we decided to trim, cut, and discard anything that doesn’t go into the recipe of basic French conversations.
Because of that, we won’t be doing lengthy lessons or lectures with hour-long videos.
Not that we’re against it.
Comprehensive courses have a place, of course, and we’ve actually developed quite a few of them that can bring you to French fluency – but that takes more than one week.
If you’re looking for something like that, you can find them on our course page.
This crash course is going to feature short videos that cover the bare necessities so you can get started speaking from day one.
The entire class has 5 hours of video instruction and guidance, and each video lesson is only 2 to 10 minutes long.
This format ensures that it’s easy to complete every daily lesson. You can even review or go through the material several times if you need to.
Although the videos are short, they're packed with material focused on basic conversation, and you're guided by instructions from a real native speaker.
Your practice will mimic live conversations, similar to living in a French-speaking country – or at least as close as possible.
This way, you’ll absorb the language and get confident about speaking faster than you can get to the front of the line for the Eiffel Tower (nearly).
Every day follows a structure of 4 types of lessons
Combining language instruction with immersive practice
We cover language basic instruction in the first 3 types of lessons (in English).
A quick coffee break, healthy juice, glass of wine (or whatever you’re into) later, we jump head first into French practice.
It’s great because you get used to the feeling of having the conversation flowing under your skin.
When you eventually encounter a native French speaker, it won’t feel terrifying and new because you’ll have been immersed in this already.
The conversation lessons are centered around the scenarios you’re most likely to encounter but teach you to build and formulate your own versions. So, you’re not in any way limited to these specific scenarios.
Everything is building towards getting you speaking.
Don’t worry, there’ll be English subtitles available all the way, so you don’t get completely lost.

This Course Is For You If You Can Relate to One of These Situations
You’re traveling to a French-speaking country and don’t want to look stupid
Your bags are packed, the hotel is booked, and you’re going to potentially experience things you’ll treasure for years, yet you have no idea how to get around in French once you get there.
You’ve been frantically downloading language apps to learn something at the last minute. Still, it feels like you’re trying to connect disjointed words you may or may not be able to use, and you’re also wondering – “Do French people even talk like this?”
Nothing gives you unique experiences and insights like knowing the language where you’re going, but a frantic shuffle of language resources won’t get you there in time.
Do you want any of the following?
The French Crash Course will open these doors in 7 days (even if some of the days are during your trip).
You took French in school but never really learned anything
Maybe you once took a few French lessons that slowly faded away because other more important things entered your life.
Maybe it was fun and fast at first, but after a while, you stagnated, and you didn’t really have anyone to practice with and couldn’t find the time to be consistent about it.
Maybe you want to reignite your high-school French (let’s be honest, very few people actually got far enough that they can use it to this day).
Do any of these sound familiar?
Perhaps you should give it one last chance…
Even if your dream about speaking French has been on the back burner for years, that doesn’t mean it’s gone bad.
If it feels like your French is in slumber and needs to be woken up, isn’t it time to replenish your francophile heart and see what could come of it?
You can reignite your dream in only 7 days.

You’ve been spinning your wheels far too long wondering about all this.
You don’t need an ear for languages or a special app that uses gamification to trick you into studying.
You just need a firm basic understanding that stops when things get complicated – and then lots of room to play around with it all.
We can guide you there in 7 days.
