 🙈🤯😱😭🥵
Is this how your French study makes you feel?

  • This whole French learning thing is taking way too long. And you are embarrassed to admit that you don’t have much to show for it. It doesn’t matter how many words you cram into your head and how much grammar you practice. You still can’t speak French, or not well enough.

  • Sometimes you even wonder if you’ll be able to learn at all.
    In fact, your brain is starting to say really mean things to you, along the lines of “You’ll never be able to have a conversation. Why can’t you just learn French? Are you dumb?” (yes, brains are mean like that.)

  • Meanwhile, you’re missing out on the fun experiences, deep connections with people around you, and maybe even doing your job as well as you want to.

When you set out to learn French, you thought it’d be more like this

👫🥂☕️🥖🥐🍷😎.

You know what I’m talking about… Taking your partner on a date night in Paris. Going on a romantic walk along the River Seine and finding the most delightful little restaurant far away from the beaten path. Talking to the waitress in perfect French to get the most delicious French food and wine for the two of you. Your partner is clearly impressed.
Of course, you’ll get croissants for breakfast. Maybe with a view on the Eiffel tower. After all, you can communicate with anyone in this country, so getting the right room will be easy.

When you fly back, you’ll just return to your daily life where you effortlessly switch between English and French depending on what the situation requires.


How did that dream ⬆️ ⬆️turn into this nightmare ⬇️⬇️?


Right now, you might actively avoid talking to natives because when you do, you spend a full thirty seconds trying to make sense of what they’re saying, and another thirty seconds to piece an answer together. Meanwhile, they have already moved on.
None of the things you learn seem to get you any closer to the goal.
It’s nerve-racking. And your partner is not impressed.

You just want to be able to have conversations in French.

Is this asking for too much?



Introducing:

The French Fluency Accelerator

The French Fluency Accelerator is a French learning space like no other.
🙅‍♂️Here, there are no French lessons that you must learn in order. No talking about the weather or other irrelevant things. I promise.
🙏Instead, you’ll find here all the strategies that you need to master your own French learning journey and a community that cheers you on every step of the way.

Wait, what?

This is a secret that most French learners and teachers alike don’t know:
How well you can speak French does not depend on how many words and rules you cram into your head. This is pretty much irrelevant. You could speak well knowing just 500 words and 0 rule (by the way, that’s as much as some natives know).
What really makes a difference is your mindset, your attitude and the strategies that you use to make it happen. And this is what you will find here.


Here’s what you can expect inside of the Accelerator:

➡️ Exclusive content

Available immediately when you sign up:
⏱Time for language learning

Meet your coach & host

Angel Pretot French learning coach.jpg

Hi! I’m Angel Pretot, your French learning coach and host in this new adventure.

Born and raised in France, I have learned five languages to fluency myself, which makes me officially a 6-languages polyglot. I also have a master’s degree in French language didactics. I have been helping students learn French since 2004 and shaping the “online French learning coach” profession since 2016. I now work 1-1 with CEOs, diplomats and other professionals who need their French skills up-to-speed *now*.

For me, learning French is a personal growth journey. It is more about becoming an upgraded, French speaking version of yourself than stuffing words in your head.

Like every journey you’re much more likely to succeed if you undertake it with peers. The French Fluency Accelerator is meant to bring you together with other French learners and give you the absolute best methods and strategies, at a fraction of the cost of one-on-one coaching, so you can finally master the French language and live the rest of your life as an upgraded version of you.


Check out what my students say:

“Is this for me?”

The Accelerator is for you if:

  • You want to learn French ASAP (but don’t want to invest in 1-1 coaching for now.)

  • You have been trying to learn French for a long time, but you haven’t been getting the results you want. You know you need a different approach to get fluent.

  • You study with me one-on-one and you know that the mindset & strategies are critical also outside of the coaching sessions. This is a perfect opportunity to dive deeper and become a master at these.

Learn+French+Angel+Pretot+Review+-+Rebecca.png

The Accelerator is NOT  for you if:

  • You already speak French fluently (obviously)

  • You think you have it figured out & you already know how to become fluent (if you have methods that work for you, then, by all means, use that!)

  • You are not willing to alter your thoughts and actions to get the French skills that you need. As they say, if you want something you’ve never had, you’ll have to do something you’ve never done.

“Not enough time to learn French”?

37% of French learners quote lack of time as the #1 challenge in their French study. I get where they’re coming from.

However, here’s why they think they need more time: because they learn so many things that are irrelevant, they waste a lot of time. Plus, they get super bored and they really don’t want to spend more time doing this.

Once you start learning - and using! - the things that really matter, and you start seeing the progress, you’ll be thrilled and want to spend more time on it so you get even more progress.

If you don’t have much time, don’t worry, you really don’t need a lot. In fact one of the first courses that you can access in the Accelerator’s member zone is “Time for language learning” - the exact process that I use to help my busiest clients find ways to fit their study in their full schedule with no extra time needed. I promise you, finding the time is a no-brainer.

Eventually, speaking French fluently will save you a lot of time and make your life a lot easier at work, with your loved ones or while traveling. This is basically a time-investment. Invest a little time now and get a lot more time and ease later. Plus all the new adventures that speaking French unlocks for you. 😎

Why I created French Fluency and the Accelerator:

Have you ever dropped out of a French class because it wasn’t well suited for you?

For 12 years, I taught French just like other teachers do.

When I taught adult students, I wondered why most of them would hardly learn anything and just drop out. Was it me? Was I doing something wrong?  (spoiler: I was!)

I asked my colleagues about it and they said it was normal. It was the same for them. I shall not worry about it.

Yet, I did worry about it. 

You see, I’m a polyglot, I have learned five languages to Fluency myself - and I wasn’t able to helps students learn even just one.
I was not going to settle for this.

What did I do differently for myself that I wasn’t replicating in the classroom? 
In short, what makes a polyglot?


As it turns out, I was doing *everything* differently. I was surrounding myself with the language and grabbing every opportunity to speak and express what truly matters to me, whether it was in German because I live in Austria or in English, Spanish, Portuguese or Esperanto so I could connect with my friends and travel the world.

I didn’t take a weekly class where I listened to someone reading from a book about things that don’t matter, and then forgot all about it for the rest of the week. This is the recipe for failure. And most teachers don’t know it and/or don’t care. They just think it’s normal and that’s how things are.

That was the moment when I decided to focus on helping students get actual results for the rest of my career. I became a French learning coach because a coach’s job is to get you the results that you want. Not to read a book to you until you are so bored you fall asleep (although maybe a sleeping coach could do that).

The truth is, you cannot learn French by reading a book. Learning French means undergoing a transformation. You are a non-French speaker and you need to become a French speaker. It requires new mental models, new habits and a new vision of yourself. Not just new words and grammar rules.

My role as your coach, with your full cooperation, is to make this transformation happen, as soon as it gets.

Since 2016, I have been working one on one with committed students who have got mind-blowing results, ranging from becoming fluent in six months to passing their university degrees and getting better jobs. I have learned a lot about how people (not just me!) learn languages. Which strategies and mindset are a winning combination. What is true for everyone and what is a shortcut that only some people can take.

This work has allowed me to gather so much wisdom, and I am delighted and honoured to be able to bring it to you now, inside of the French Fluency Accelerator.  I can’t wait to interact with you and other students in the group and learn even more about how humans learn languages, while you rapidly transform into the French speaker you want to be.

This will be an amazing adventure. Join us now so you don’t miss any of it!

Warning! Side effects:

After you join the Accelerator, this things will happen:

Immediately when you join the group:

  • Feeling that “finally, someone is getting it!” You are not alone with your French challenge anymore.

When you start taking workshops:

  • 💡“A-has” or “light bulb” moments and other “oh that’s why it wasn’t working” epiphanies.

  • Your life gets “frenchified”. You’ll find ways to put more French here and there, maybe even without noticing.

  • Little by little, you’ll understand more and more French. You’ll only realise after a while that this has been happening.

After a few months:

  • Whenever you have a question about French that google can’t answer, you won’t stay stuck or beat yourself up. You’ll automatically follow the following steps 1) post in the accelerator group 2) get a satisfying answer within hours 3) move on to the next challenge. 💪

  • You’ll yourself randomly speaking French to your dog 🐕 or even yourself. Don’t worry, it’s a good thing.

  • One day, you’ll realize that you’ve been having conversations in French without any fear or friction. ➡️Best feeling ever. You’ve made it! 💫

FAQ

What technology do I need on my side to be able to join the group and the workshops? ×

Everything works from your browser (internet explorer or a similar program). You can view the courses and interact in the group from your computer, tablet or phone, which ever you prefer. To join the group, you will need a facebook account, which is free and easy to create within seconds. Can't get any simpler!

I’m a beginner. Will this help me? ×

Great! This means you haven’t had time to learn inefficient method and you haven’t wasted time yet either. Come by and learn French efficiently from the get-go. It will save you years of frustration.

I’m an intermediate student. My French skills are okay-ish but I feel I’m not making progress anymore. Can this help me make it past this stage? ×

I feel you. We call your situation “the intermediate block” or “intermediate plateau”. Every learner experience it and the worst thing you could do is to quit. Everyone who doesn’t quit eventually makes it through and goes on to enjoy mind-blowing fluency. This community is just what you need to support you through this challenge. Also, I have coached many people through this stage, and I have made it through myself 5 times (once for each language I’ve learned). So, we have experience with this here. Do ask for any help or support you need.

I’m a French teacher and I want to sharpen my skills and find ways to help my own students learn better. Can this help me? ×

Yes! The strategies and mindset coaching offered here is useful for all learners, even very advanced AND you can use these lessons to help your students too. Plus, I am thrilled to have fellow teachers in the group who can share a different point of view with the learners. Join us!

I have a hard time studying consistently. Can the French Fluency Accelerator help with that? ×

Yes! Several workshops will be dedicated to studying more consistently, such as how to create a solid routine or get back on the wagon once you have fallen off. Plus, the group will provide accountability for you. Sometimes, knowing that others have your back and are cheering you on is all you need to keep going.

Is there a way to track my progress? ×

Yes. This will be addressed in two of the first three workshops in September. After you take these workshops, you'll be able to monitor your progress very closely.

I always start studying French with great enthusiasm, but then life gets in the way and I fall off. Can you help me solve this problem? ×

Yes! Several workshops will be dedicated to ways to maintain your motivation and studyi more consistently, such as how to create a solid routine or get back on the wagon once you have fallen off. Plus, the group will provide accountability for you. Sometimes, knowing that others have your back and are cheering you on is all you need to keep going.

I can’t understand the natives. Do you have a solution for that? ×

Yes, the strategies I teach focus strongly on conversation, which also means understanding what the natives are saying to you. You'll have this issue solved in no time.

I don’t have a lot of opportunities to practice. Do you have a solution? ×

Yes! Getting opportunities to practice is easy once you know how. We'll do a workshop about this.

I have tried everything to learn French and nothing has worked. Why would this be any different? ×

Have you tried an approach that focuses on strategy, and especially mindset? To my knowledge, that is where all other approaches fail. Either they teach strategies that don't work for you, don't teach strategies at all, or assume that your mindset is already tuned to allow you to learn French easily (in my experience, it rarely is). In the Accumulator, we'll leave no stones unturned. We'll make sure that your mindset is on point and that you have strategies that work for you (it's easy to tell them apart once you know how).

I’m an introvert and I’m shy and embarrassed when I try to speak French. Can you help? ×

Welcome, fellow introvert! Did you know that some experts say that being an introvert is actually an advantage when it comes to learning a language? Our love for books and sitting in solitude leads us to mastering a language very thoroughly and accurately. While it’s true that the speaking part isn’t as easy for us as for our extroverted peers, when we get over it, we tend to speak way better and more fluently than they do. Many of my polyglot friends are introverts just like myself and we can all confirm that learning French “the introvert way” is a winning strategy. Also, I can assure you that our workshops will contain a lot of activities that you can do alone, and comparatively few “social” activities. And you can participate in the group as much or as little as you want. As an introvert, I really enjoy participating in the facebook groups linked to the online courses I take. It's much less overwhelming than real life courses.

I don’t use facebook. Can I still benefit from the Accelerator? ×

It’s a pity to miss out on the community aspect (you could consider making an account just to join this group, facebook is free). In all cases, the workshops are held and stored outside of facebook so you can still benefit from this membership, as you’ll have access to all the workshops both live and in recordings.

What if I don’t have time to learn French? ×

37% of French learners quote lack of time as the #1 challenge in their French study. So, I get where you’re coming from.
However, here’s why these learners think they need more time: because they learn so many things that are irrelevant, they waste a lot of time. Plus, they get super bored and they really don’t want to spend more time doing this.

Invest a little time now and get a lot more time and ease later. Plus all the new adventures that speaking French unlocks for you.

How much one-on-one interaction will I(the student) have with you(Angel)? ×

You can expect me to answer questions you ask in the facebook group (please also pay attention to other people’s answer, and answer other people’s questions, it’s great to have several points of view) and on any workshop you attend live.

If you sign up for the yearly membership, you will get a 1h coaching session 1-1 with me as a bonus. You can take this session as soon as you have gone through the first 3 workshops and done the associated homework.

When and where are the live workshops held? What if I can’t attend? ×

All the workshops will be held via zoom and you can participate from your browser. You’ll receive the link per email ahead of time. If you still can’t attend you will get access to the recording in the memberzone when the workshop is over - and for as long as you are a member. You’ll also get access to all past workshops since the creation of this membership in the workshop library.

How is the Accelerator different from one-on-one coaching? ×

In the Accelerator, you learn alongside other learners and receive support from me as a group. All the questions and answers are shared with everyone in the group.
In one-on-one coaching, you have my full undivided attention during all your sessions, the recordings of these sessions are just for you, and you also get additional help such as homework corrections and personalized files to practice pronunciation.
The membership and one-on-one coaching are very complementary. Of course, you can do both. You can also choose to join the membership to see if you appreciate this way of learning (more in depth and strategy+mindset oriented than regular language school) and decide to take on one-on-one coaching later.

How do I get access to the group and the workshops? ×

As soon as you sign up, you’ll get access to all the content in the memberzone (including the ecourse Time for language learning) and the link to request access to the facebook group.
As soon as I get your request, I’ll grant you access and you will be able to (and should) start interacting in the group and get to know your fellow students.

How much does this cost? ×

If you join before August 31st, 2019, you will secure the early bird rate forever: $49/month or $497/year.

On September 1st, 2019, the price will increase to $69/month or $697/year.

In all cases, if you choose the yearly option, you’ll get a free 1-1 coaching session.

If I don’t like it, can I get my money back? ×

Yes, we have a generous 14-days refund policy.You can join the group, attend the workshops and do the exercises for 2 full weeks and if you don’t find it extremely helpful, I’ll refund you.

Which jurisdiction applies? ×

Frenchfluency.net is the property of Language Academy Frangel UG (Haftungsbeschrankt), registered in Berlin, Germany. Should a dispute arise, it must be heard by a court of competent jurisdiction in Germany.

I have another question ×

Sure! Just drop me a quick email at hi@frenchfluency.net and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
