I studied French for 12 years at school. 

I lived in Ivory Coast, France, AND Belgium. 

Yet when I graduated from school I still felt like my French was terrible. I was nowhere near fluent. 

As soon as I got my hands on some music in French that I liked, that all changed! 

I am sure music will be just as helpful, motivating and inspiring for you. 

Give it a shot! 

Go through 10 songs, learning the most important vocabulary. Build your knowledge, skills, fluency and enjoy! 

Who this course is for:

  • Anybody who likes music and wants to start learning French!
