French Confidence


French Self-Confidence is a very special course for women that has been in the making since Carrie Anne moved to Paris three years ago. Offered August 4 - 25th, 2018, as a guided online experience with private Facebook group to celebrate its launch, this course will be available in a self-study format thereafter.

An internal dive into the beliefs and feelings behind the French je ne sais quoi.

For a taste of the tone of the course and of Carrie Anne’s insights, please enjoy her podcast, The Paris Lessons, by clicking HERE.

Carrie Anne candidly shares her personal journey from femme-enfant to femme in this 4 part inspirational, personal-growth focused, experience. She will discuss her journey in Paris to learning how to vocalize what she wants (French style), to letting go, to no longer needing to apologize, and much, much more. She shares all of the lessons she has learned from French women along her journey, from French culture at large and from life in Paris.

What exactly is a femme-enfant? This course will explore the meaning of this very French term and, in doing so, will set you free and give you permission to embrace the self-confidence admired in French women around the world. Prepare to feel bien dans votre peau (well in your skin) in a way you didn’t imagine possible.

Course includes: 

Your e-book divided into 4 lessons, each with their corresponding audio recordings, containing Carrie Anne’s personal story of how French culture and life in Paris have evolved her self-confidence. Relevant French culture and language lessons are sewn throughout the e-book, guiding you to elevate and deepen your self-confidence as you bring more French into your life. You will also be a part of the course’s private Facebook group, to express and share your experiences and reflections with Carrie Anne and your classmates. Carrie Anne will send you one video message per week of the course, made with love for you in Paris.

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 and which aspects of French culture are the most mystifying. 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.
