- How long does the course run? Divided into 4 sections, it is designed to be used at your own pace.

- How much time do I need to set aside for the course? We suggest setting aside 6 hours per week in order to complete it in 4 weeks.

- Is there homework? Oui.

- Will I be graded? Yes. You will have the opportunity to grade your work immediately and learn from any incorrect answers using the answer key provided in your course’s e-book. 

- Do I need to be online at certain times in order to participate? No.

- Will I have access to all of the course's content at once? Yes.

- Do I need to already know French to participate? This course was designed for Francophiles who took French in high school or college (but, any highly motivated intermediate learner is welcome to add it to their French learning library).

- When will I be able to watch a French movie without subtitles/read a French book or French magazine? Bonne question. Starting today! The best way to learn quickly is to begin at your ideal destination, with your imagined goal, using films, books and blogs whose subjects inspire you (not beginner’s materials). However, in order to comprehend most of what is being said in a French film without subtitles, or written in French without a dictionary handy, you will need to successfully complete Basics for Beginners and Université 1 / Comprehensive / Université 2 and, of course, make an effort to have French in your daily life using our free French Weekend emails, par exemple

- What if I don't love it? As this course is delivered in-full upon purchase, and completely digitally, returns and/or refunds are not available. We encourage you to enjoy all of the available free content on this site, including our InstagramFacebookTwitter and SoundCloud accounts for more free content, to determine if Carrie Anne’s method and coaching style are right for you before making your purchase. The Université 1 & 2 programs come with a first lesson trial offer.


As a fluent non-native speaker who spent years in the classroom learning French grammar and later studying French literature at U.C. Berkeley and La Sorbonne, as well as classical piano at L'École Normale de Musique in Paris before obtaining real-world fluency, she knows precisely which aspects of the French language are perceived to be the most difficult. Carrie Anne focuses on those aspects in order to coach you to feeling fluent and expressing your full personality in French as quickly as possible.
