This is the self-study, archived version of the May 2019 Membership. It’s topic was the travel French you need at the boulangerie and at the brasserie, including bonus guided French practice and meditation audios and some of Carrie Anne’s favorite ‘adresses’ (spots) in Paris to use your travel French. This month also places special emphasis on the correct use of the word ‘à’.

Suitable for intermediate and advanced learners, you will receive a link to download your 20+ page e-book and 90 minutes of audio upon completion of your purchase. Please find an excerpt from its e-book below :

‘This month is all about the language and the culture required to enjoy two of the establishments that I enjoy the most in Paris : la boulangerie and la brasserie. I chose the cover photo for this month’s e-book because it is exactly where I take you in the above méditation - Au petit fer à cheval on the rue Vieille du Temple in the 4th arrondissement (the southern half of le Marais). It has been open for more than a century and I have been going there since my early days at the Sorbonne. It remains my favorite place to meet a friend for a drink, to catch-up with family over a long lunch or to enjoy an impromptu café allongé at the comptoir (the bar) … and likely a croissant if there are any left in the baskets lingering from breakfast hours. Only because it would be so tragic to let them go stale, n’est-ce pas ? I usually go there in the mornings during the week so that I can say bonjour to my friend Didier - one of the most regal serveurs in Paris. For this month’s grammar lesson, we will study that beautiful, tiny and - at times - confusing preposition à, especially as it pertains to French dishes in order to help you order confidently or simply to better explain what you have cooked for your guests from The Joy of Cooking. Spending more time getting to know this powerful word will have you having more ‘a-ha!’ and less ‘pardon ?’ moments with your French going forward.

Carrie Anne is excellent. Her courses are like visiting a dear friend and unexpectedly you’ve just become immersed with her in France. The monthly membership offers so much content, it’s affordable and keeps me on track in my French Journey! I can’t say enough about her graciousness, skills and insight!

- Sandy, San Francisco

The French is Beautiful monthly membership has brought so much value and inspiration to me, more than any other web or podcast materials I have tried. It's fun and engaging, as Carrie Anne breathes life into studying French, making the gap between where I am now and where I want to be an exciting one to explore! Receiving the emails feels like opening a gift with surprising new content each month and I feel part of an awesome international community of like-minded souls. Carrie Anne is the teacher you wish you had tutoring you every day, but the monthly is a pretty good compromise. Thanks, Carrie Anne, for changing my mindset around studying French.

- Rachel, Australia

Carrie Anne has provided an accessible way for busy working people to study French for passion. This course means I can study every day in my car & at the gym. I don't feel stressed with the limitations of getting to a class. It is learning for the digital age.

- Katie, Australia

The monthly membership has been everything I knew it would be from taking other courses with Carrie Anne ... and then even more!!! She presents so much valuable content and then always adds extra. I am grateful to Carrie Anne for her generosity in offering such incredible value for the money. She truly understands the challenges an Anglophone faces in learning to speak French fluidly and gently guides us on our journey in her own unique manner. I am excited to see what she has in store for us in ‘novembre’.

- Peg, Connecticut

I am LOVING this! Wow, we are getting so much for this membership. So many great lessons already with just « en ». I was surprised and thrilled at how much you’re giving for that price. 

- Lauri, New York

Not even through the audios yet and I have chills! Learning so much! It’s a great program! I can’t wait to see what is up for next month.

- Kieran, Paris

The monthly membership has been the best way to practice my French on a regular basis. Because it's not for beginners, we are able to dive into concepts that build on the knowledge I already have. I've been reminded of concepts, but I've also learned practical things not taught in a traditional course. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

- Marina, Missouri

I was absolutely NOT expecting this! There is a TON of material here. This program is an incredible value for the money!! I hope people realize how generous this is...and you are!

- Rebecca, Oxford

I love to listen to Carrie Anne's soothing voice speaking clearly and eloquently to guide my pronunciation and understanding!

Carrie Anne is extremely genuine. Her work and class content is thoughtful, engaging and tasteful. I’ve grown to expect nothing but the best from her.

- Bonnie, New York

After six years of taking French lessons, I still did not feel comfortable speaking the language. I came across Carrie Anne's daily pronunciation emails, and after a few days, I knew that her program was exactly what I was missing. My ability to speak French has improved dramatically! The French teach French in a methodical way that isn't really practical for making everyday conversation, while Carrie Anne's approach works from day one. If you want to learn the language, French is Beautiful is the way to do it.

- Jordan, New York

Learning French should not be a chore and it isn't with Carrie Anne. She has taught me to slow down and enjoy my journey with the French language.  

- Sarah, Chicago

Carrie Anne makes learning and brushing up on French enjoyable. I started the Comprehensive course in early August and studied when I had time throughout the week. I found the way she created the material to be enjoyable and so helpful to making me feel confident in my ability to speak French. I would truly recommend this to anyone looking to connect and enhance their French speaking skills!

- Katie, Chicago

What a joy it is to study with Carrie Anne and remember all that initially drew me to French, France and her marvelous people!

- Rebecca, UK

If Paris is a moveable feast, then Carrie Anne is the Michelin starred chef of French teachers. I have been lucky enough to spend the past three months studying with Carrie Anne. It is such a breakthrough to listen to Radio France or watch a movie in French and begin to know what is being said. It is a dream come true to order in a restaurant or be understood when asking a question while traveling in France. This framework provides an amazing foundation I can build upon and continue moving forward in my French Journey. And thanks to Carrie Anne, I have come to see that it is a journey. As an adult learner I am coming to terms with the challenges of incorporating the class into my daily life and it has become the thing I do for me that breathes beauty into my day. Merci mille fois Carrie Anne !
