Imagine something amazing.
You are a beginner in French (that means you don’t know a lot of words yet, but that’s normal, maybe you’ve never even spoken French).
But you discover the solution that, in 21 days, allows you to have your first conversation in French for half an hour!
That would be great! No ?
Unbelievable? Impossible? No, not at all, it’s completely possible!
But you’re going to say to me: « Jérôme, that’s a nice idea, this solution in 21 days.
But it’s not for me. »
- Maybe you’re shy.
- Maybe you already have difficulty to speak in public, so in French it’s unthinkable.
- Maybe you already have difficulty to speak in public, so in French it’s unthinkable.
- It is likely that you have already tried miracle solutions for French, and it did not work.
- It is likely that the first time you had to speak French, it was a disaster and you felt ashamed.
- It’s likely that you’ve been a ‘beginner’ for a while and do not feel you are making any progress.
However, is this a reason to do nothing, if your desire is to be able to speak French?
If you do nothing, you will not get very far with French, that is obvious.
If you don’t find a way to speak French in a safe and caring environment, you will reinforce the idea that you will never be able to speak French.
And all that time wasted learning vocabulary and doing grammar exercises for nothing, not even knowing how to say who you are in French.
Not to mention the way people around you may not take you seriously when you want to start a new project.
To do nothing is to engage in a negative spiral… and you can say goodbye to French.
Once again, you’ll say to me: « But, Jérôme, I’ve taken action. I’ve done things! »
I’m not saying the opposite!
- You may have bought books to learn French. Methods with texts, vocabulary lists and grammar. For speaking French, this is not ideal.
- You have probably set yourself a goal too broad to begin with: to speak everyday French fluently with everyone in France. You have to be realistic, it’s a great long-term goal that should be cut into many smaller, simpler goals…
- You may have bought a course on the internet, but there was no one to correct your mistakes and tell you what to do to improve yourself. And so you went around in circles with your mistakes, not sure if you did it right.
Your problem is not your ability to learn vocabulary or grammar.
Your problem is not your willingness to speak French.
Your problem is that you lack a reassuring support and above all the final feedback in kindliness.
Because the key to being able to speak French is
- set small goals over short periods of time
- have content adapted to these objectives
- know the right communication strategies in French so as not to waste time
- have the right mindset
- and have a reassuring support and be able to take the time with a benevolent specialist who will validate your knowledge through practice.
This is why I created the course
« My very first real French conversation »
It’s a 21-day training: 20 days of useful and strategic learning, and the 21st day: a conversation in French – your first real conversation in French with a French person (with me, on Zoom or Skype)
The goal is very simple: to be able to present yourself in French and to get to know a French person. That’s concrete and it’s accessible in 21 days.
But there is also a secret purpose.
And it is twofold:
- to make sure that you gain confidence in learning French,
- and to have the satisfaction of finally speaking French!
Such a positive experience is priceless. This will be the beginning of a more effective learning process as your mindset will be oriented towards success.
Such a positive experience is the beginning of a virtuous spiral: since you have overcome your fear of speaking French, you will be able to speak even more French, and then your level will increase by the day.
How proud you will be to show others what you have achieved, and how you will be able to manage on your own in French, perhaps making a few mistakes, but still speaking with ease.
And you can choose your option:
- option The right basics
- option Hand in hand learning
- option PREMIUM
The « My very first real French conversation » course is built, whichever option you choose, on a 20-day learning process…
… step by step, hand in hand: thanks to worksheets, I show you what to do at every moment
… with a visual presentation of French: I use the principle of illustrated French to make learning French easier
… with a logical progression: we obviously start with your name to extend the conversation to your hobbies, your preferences, the other languages you speak and even your pets
… with time for revision: if there are 12 lessons with new content, there are also 8 days devoted to revision – essential for mastering the content
… with, per day of content, the progressive method of the 3 phases: phase 1 – learn the minimum of French in order to be able to speak about yourself in French; Phase 2 – learn to answer simple questions; phase 3 – learn how to ask questions
… with an original system of videos to train you to speak: you will feel like you are talking to me, and you will also be so used to seeing me, that on the 21st day, I will no longer be a stranger to you.
… with a feedback at the end of these 20 days of learning (which no online training offers).
This is « The right basics » option: a mix of autonomy and guidance that provides you with the content you need to succeed in your challenge.

In addition to the extra services of the « Hand in hand learning » version (unlimited emails and audio feedback), the « Premium » package offers 7 training sessions of 20 minutes each in the form of a workout after each revision session: with your French teacher, online, you work on your pronunciation, for example.
