Why learn French?


(It’s easier than you think.)

You won’t have to ask, “Do you speak English?” anymore, and won’t that feel good? (You’ll love it. And feel proud of yourself.)

You’ll do things differently than your fellow tourists because you’re making the effort to learn like an insider. You don’t need to be fluent to do this. You can learn a basic French framework then build as you go. Step-by-step.

What’s even better than a phrasebook?

Real French, that’s what.

It’s the closest you can come to learning French in Paris.

(Café au lait not included …)

With real French, you KNOW what you’re saying, and others do, too. You can BUILD on what you learn because it’s real French. Real grammar. Real vocabulary.

Real. Isn’t that better? Especially when it comes to communicating with other people.

Read road signs and menus, ask for directions, ask for help if you’re lost or have a problem, or even strike up a simple conversation with a French person. (By the way, they love it if you make the effort to learn their language. You’d feel the same way.)

Real French for Travelers: The complete online course. Or the basics. Or Part 2, if you’ve had some French. Whichever you choose, it’s yours to keep. Review, practice, and master (all for the price of about 4 lessons with a private tutor) in as little as 8 weeks. 

Unlike other French programs, it’s designed specifically for travelers.


I’m Kyle and I’ll be your teacher for this course.

I lived in France for 13 years and have been teaching French to adults ever since. Learning travel French will add depth, fun, and rich memories to your France trips. I found from experience that knowing some French paves the way to a better trip: a less “lost” feeling as well as warmer relationships with the locals. Aside from that, you’ll feel proud of yourself!

I’m also the founder of the website Oliver’s France and the author of 2 travel books (Magical Paris: Over 100 Things to Do Across Paris and A French Garden: The Loire Valley) and a paperback version of this course (Real French for Travelers) all by K. B. Oliver.

Real French in short, clear lessons. No intimidation here.

Whether you are starting from zero or reviving whatever French you may have had in high school, Real French for Travelers is an easy-to-use online course to help you reach your goals.
