Lui & Leur / Champagne : Membership Archives
This is the self-study, archived version of the December 2018 Membership. It’s topic was Carrie Anne’s guide to understanding (and enjoying!) champagne and preparing an authentic French holiday apéro (cocktail hour), how to use beautiful words like lui, leur, la and les to say things like ‘I loved it’ or ‘I’ll bring it to the party’ and a Speaking List complete with all of the vocabulary needed to celebrate the holidays, French style.
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 :
‘We will begin our journey together this month with a cultural discussion of champagne and pre-dinner drinks in France, followed by the rules for using words such as lui and leur, ending with an extensive list of vocab connected to loved ones, food and festivities in this month’s speaking list. Take the time to read this text and it will make your pronunciation audio all the more enriching, ‘promis’ ( promise ). And remember that I pronounce the answers to your exercises at the end of it, so do finish those before you hear les réponses. In the spirit of les Fêtes ( the Holidays ), our topic this month will center around les proches ( ‘the close ones’, meaning ‘loved ones’ ), l’apéritif ( cocktail hour ), les repas ( meals ) and the important elements of French conversation and grammar that go with them. May your Holiday Season be bright and filled with the finest things in life, the things valued most here en France : restful, laughter-filled time with loved ones, la gourmandise ( over-eating ) and champagne ! This month will be a relaxed and celebratory adventure through a variety of essential lessons. You will finish 2018 with a command of more verbs, a more natural understanding of tiny, yet powerful words like le, la, les, lui and leur, a deeper grasp of French social etiquette and a wider vocabulary when it comes to people, food and socializing in French.’

Carrie Anne is excellent. Her courses are like visiting a dear friend and unexpectedly you’ve just become immersed with her in France.

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.

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

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 !
