I assume you’re reading this page because you do not speak French but you’re willing to.
You’ve tried many different techniques but nothing worked though…

Your fluency relies on three pillars

  • Regularity:
    To speak a proper French you must practice frequently, more you speak, faster the connection in your brain will be, and you will have a larger vocabulary. Obviously, if you speak French twice a week it’s better than nothing but it will take you ages to be fluent. Without regularity you have no chance to succeed that’s why you should speak French as much as you can.
    By practicing on a regular basis you maximise your experiences with the language and significantly increase your odds to reach your objective.

  • Support:
    One the biggest difference between oral expression and the other competences of a language is the absolute need to be supported by someone. Thanks to all the resources available online you can learn on your own how to read in French or get better at understanding spoken conversations, but you won’t be able to speak properly if nobody is with you to support you, correct your mistakes in a real time, and help you to improve your accent. You need an actual person, not a Youtube video.

  • Engagement:
    By engagement I mean the level of investment of the student as well as the one of the teacher. For instance, the engagement you will have with a mobile app that you will open twice a week is very low.  In the same way, practicing spoken French with videos sent by an online training can be a good complement but will never be as efficient as a real conversation in real time. The engagement of both parts has to be balanced, if you’re serious enough to be present to the course it has to be the same for your teacher, otherwise, it can’t work. 

Why it didn't work so far?

  • Private French lessons 
  • Discussions with a native French speaker (not on a regular basis)
  • Going in France 
  • Language apps
  • … 

All these things did not work for very simple reasons. Your success rely on (motivation; regularity; support
