Parlons Grammaire

FRENCH GRAMMAR MADE SIMPLE FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS.
ONE MONTH AT A TIME.

For intermediate learners

The grammar is taught in clear English so that you can fully grasp the nuances.

Too often, French courses move from one grammar topic to another too quickly, without giving you a chance to internalise the previous rule and its nuances. I know, because I’ve been through it.

Parlons Grammaire allows you to learn tricky grammar at your own pace, with a new lesson each week and speaking session so you can practise in a safe space.

Parlons Grammaire

IS BECOMING SOMETHING BETTER!
I am currently in the process of converting the course into a recurring membership where you get access to all my intermediate level material! Put your name down to stay up-to-date.

How It Works

There are 2 levels of workshop: Do It Yourself and Live.

EVERYONE GETS

4-week long workshops

Themes are chosen based on what English speakers typically struggle with most when learning la langue française. Examples: The subjunctive, or things like relative pronouns (que, qui, dont, ce dont, ce que...).

A new lesson each week

I break down that theme into manageable chunks otherwise known as lessons, taught in clear, logical English with plenty of examples.
A new one is released each week.
You go over the lesson in your own time via your personal training area on the website.

Quizzes and worksheets

Accompanying the each week's lesson is a quiz and worksheet to check your understanding of what you've learned and then personalise it to your situation, hugely increasing the likelihood that you will retain it for good.

"Live" level students get

1-hour group speaking practice

The best way to make what you learn coller (stick) fast is to USE it. There are 3 weekly chances for you to practise the topic of the week, get corrections, and have general conversation practice with the other learners.
I publish the notes, corrections, and replay from the session for you to review!

Practise 24/7 in the private community

Get access to an exclusive community hosted on Telegram (computer, tablet, and mobile) where you can ask questions, practise your French, and generally bring some more French into your everyday life.

What My Students Are Saying

The coursework and homework materials are developed with English speakers in mind, which makes it easier to grasp the French context and grammar.

Alex is a great teacher; he is very patient and encouraging, and takes the time to explain things. The group chat was a bonus and allowed me to inject a little bit more French into my regular life.

I highly recommend this course, it makes learning French fun and I’ve met a lot of nice people along the way!

Vicky Popa

Learning French from Canada

Parlons Grammaire does a great job integrating grammar fundamentals into practical usage. By that I mean that grammar training is approached not only in a lesson or exercise, but by using it immediately in conversation.

Instead of just filling in a blank, you are using the new grammar points to converse with other people.

This helps the mechanics of the language to become a part of you. Something that you will use more automatically and understand more fully when heard.

Moi, c'est Alex. Enchanté !

👋  Salut ! Moi, c’est Alex, et toi ?

I’m English but I’ve been living in France and learning the French language every day for several years now. You may know me from my YouTube channel.

I love grammar because I love the challenge of understanding (and using!) the sometimes complex logic behind the rules of this beautiful language. Many French people have even told me I know the grammar better than them!

We can’t truly say we’ve learned grammar until we can comfortably use it, and that’s the motivation behind this course Parlons Grammaire.

I look forward to working with you very soon.

Take A Sneak Peek

Get a taste of what you'll get by viewing a sample lesson from one of the themes in the course.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lessons are taught in both video & written format, broken down into separate topics. You can see a sneak peek here.

You will be able to go through them by navigating through the interactive website or by viewing a PDF copy.

Absolument !

These lessons can provide a fantastic refresher for topics you have some familiarity with, explained in a clear and concise way. It’s likely that you aren’t fully confident in it because of a lack of time spent on it, explanation, or simply explanation in French.

These lessons are built for the English-speaker in mind. And with the premium package you get to put into practise and apply it to your life tout de suite !

You can comfortably go through each week’s lesson, attempt the quiz, and complete the worksheet in an hour and a half, maybe less.

Each lesson delivers as much value as possible, however, so it’s common for students to go over it once or twice during the week.

Add an hour to that per week if you are participating in one of our speaking sessions.

After that, you can spend as much or as little time as you like practising in the private community.

You can see the available themes including those covered in the workshops, both live and do-it-yourself by clicking here or scrolling up to the How Do You Want To Learn? section.

No but if you’re a new student and you’re not satisfied after the first week of lessons you can message me for a full refund, no questions asked.

J’adore cette question !

It has a double meaning, which is something:

“Parlons grammaire” literally means “let’s talk grammar” or “let’s focus on grammar”.

But by using “parler” it’s also emphasising the speaking component of the course.
