I love love loved your French Confidence course, it was amazing. I've told so many of my other entrepreneur friends to go buy it, it was very freeing for me ... Oh and I'm moving to Paris next year with my husband to bring my new project to life!

It’s like Deepak Chopra teaching French.

- Melanie, New York

French Confidence is a wonderfully unique course offered by French is Beautiful in which Carrie Anne shares the discoveries she's made in her exploration of some of the mysteries of the life and culture of French women. With the gentle, caring guidance that she brings to all of her courses, you may find upon inner reflection that you will discover incredible facets of yourself as a woman as well. I highly recommend this course to women of any age. 

- Peg, Connecticut

The French Confidence course pushed me to examine my beliefs on beauty, well-being, and the concept of being unapologetic. Since completing the course, I'm apologizing less for being me and am feeling more bien dans ma peau.

- Melissa, Washington, D.C.

French Confidence was a wonderful journey that taught me to reflect on my inner dialogue as well as the way I carry myself in the world. As someone drawn to the slow French life and as a French language student, I found myself appreciating Carrie Anne not only as an exceptional French teacher, but as a life coach imparting the wisdom of the je ne sais quoi of Paris and beyond. Lovely experience that I will carry with me as I become more comfortable saying ‘je suis bien dans ma peau’ with the confidence of a French woman meandering down a delicious cobble stone street, baguette in hand, red lips shimmering. 

- Lauri, New York

I truly enjoyed the French Confidence course. As a Francophile, I was able to learn more about why I'm so captured by the French culture. It was fantastic to engage with Carrie Anne's inspiring guidance throughout the course.

- Catherine, Australia 

Carrie Anne is an absolute pleasure to listen to. Her approach is genuine, clear, concise, beautiful, and quite frankly, unique. She knows the inner workings of the French mind, culture, and language from the inside out, and makes it all a breeze to learn and understand, and above all, apply. She's an absolute gem. Not only do I highly recommend her to anyone interested in all things French with my eyes closed, I'd take any course she offers that pertains to the French culture, lifestyle, and the likes. Thank you, Carrie Anne, for the absolute beauty you create.

- Isabelle, Canada

This course is a wonderful insight into how French women view themselves and how they live their lives to support themselves and give themselves confidence. Carrie Anne has a wonderful way of articulating her thoughts and in such a gentle way. Highly recommended for any woman wanting to explore what gives a French Woman that je ne sais quoi. 

- Victoria, New Zealand

Carrie has brought a gentle voice and clarity to me as a woman and mother that I haven’t been able to do myself. She does a great job offering thoughtful questions to bring one’s own thinking to concepts. Merci!

Such a meaningful experience! Carrie Anne's insight is so thoughtful, kind, and full of respect for both French and anglophone cultures. The course was so timely and fun for me personally, a good mix of helpful, inspiring, and interesting!
