L'accord & la liaison : Membership Archives


This is the self-study, archived version of the June 2019 Membership. It’s topic was l’accord and la liaison with inspiring explanations as well as written and speaking practice. Carrie Anne also shares one of her very favorite, personal ‘adresses’ (spots) in Paris with you this month and explores the power of knowing what you don’t want, the French way, for your personal development.

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 nuances and connections! That is to say, it is about l’accord and la liaison. These two precious aspects of the French language will no longer be mysterious sources of blocages (blocks) on your French Journey - they are about to become two of your best friends. We are going to explore how l’accord is the ultimate manifestation of the genders of French nouns, the final reward for the hours that you have spent memorizing them, and how la liaison is the structural backdrop from which the beautiful, unique sounds of French saunter forth. We will understand how these seemingly purposeless aspects of French are what give it its unbridled elegance, its savage beauty. The cover photo for the juin e-book is just around the corner from the adresse (literally : address ; figuratively : spot) that I am sharing with you this month, taken as I was walking through the Palais-Royal last week at the first signs of summer. I love how the symmetry of the foliage adds structure to the wild force of la nature (nature)… It is tempting in Anglophone culture to become nearly superstitious of focusing on what we don’t want, fearing that we are going to attract what it is that we don’t desire or become an all-around negative person. There is power in saying what you don’t like in a way that isn’t defensive, self-mocking or passive aggressive. Consider telling the world (and yourself) what you don’t like this month in a detached, matter-of-fact way. A powerful preliminary step towards doing this is recognizing any moments where you feel obligated to like something, where you feel like you are going to an event, eating at a restaurant or making a phone call against your own heart : à contre cœur. Oui, this is an expression en français and it happens to be one of my favorites.’

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!

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

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 !
