I'm Kyle, and I lived in France for 13 years. I know what it’s like to learn a foreign language from scratch. I can help you learn step by step, one small building block at a time.

Dig into REAL French (with a clear bent toward travel) with 42 individual lessons you can repeat as often as you like, and a complete workbook (and cheat sheets.)

If that sounds like a lot to you, try the basic foundation course to get your feet wet (Part 1), a little over half the course.

Real French for Travelers Part 1 offers the Foundations of Travel French.

Then, if you want to go on, you can take Part 2, Situational Travel French.

Or you might dive into the complete course. In any case, you'll be glad you took the time to learn travel French. (Click the links above for more info on the smaller courses.) For the full course, keep scrolling down to see the whole curriculum and how to enroll.

Hi there! Did you know speaking Travel French is easier than you think? Especially if you take it step by step. I had the joy of living in France for 13 years. Since that time, I've been teaching French to adults and teens one-on-one, in senior centers, at a community college, and in French companies. (And I've taught English in France too!)

I can teach you to be operational in France for your next trip, whether for vacation or for business. You'll be so proud of yourself talking in the local language!

I have a France-only website, Oliver's France, full of destination ideas, tips, and resources. You may also find my books helpful for travel: Magical Paris: Over 100 Things to Do Across Paris and A French Garden: The Loire Valley.

Greetings from Kyle

"Real French for Travelers” online training is excellent! This training provides the right topics at the right pace for me to learn French. The videos are like having a class but with the advantage that I can review as much as I want. Kyle explains the topics very clearly. Besides her natural teaching talent, the student benefits from her many years of teaching and, of course, her personal experience living in France. The training combines videos with grammar and practical exercises. The QuickStart phrases are fantastic for travel as they cover everyday topics that travelers for sure will need. I also enjoy the listening exercises to get familiar with French! My experience studying “Real French for Travelers” could not be better! Cristina L.

"Real French for Travelers online course is such a great guide in helping me feel comfortable with learning a new language and gaining skills to confidently travel to France! I've tried a few other resources, but this one was the most comprehensive and easy to follow for a beginner. It's well laid out, the workbook and exercises are helpful, the pronunciation is clear and easy to repeat, love the vocabulary cheat sheets and travel tips." Shanna B.

"The format is easy to navigate (user friendly) and the curriculum is easy to follow. Also, I love the workbook. It makes it so “hands-on” rather than just listening. The course can also be an excellent refresher for those who have not studied French for some time. This course will make your visit to France much more enjoyable without the angst of not having years of French study. Bon voyage!!! Julie W.

"Real French for Travelers is the ideal course for learning practical French that can be used on a vacation, a business trip, or to fulfill a personal goal. Each lesson zeroes in on a particular topic and is just the right length - short enough to keep the student's focus but long enough to ensure mastery of the concept. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking for an easy, cost-effective way to master practical conversational French. Quentin S

Who is this course for?
It's for people who want to travel to France one day or for those who like traveling repeatedly. It's for those who want to communicate even just a little bit while they are there. They'd love the convenience of getting something they want or need or sampling the culture a little deeper. It's for those who want the satisfaction of being able to speak in the local language without hand gestures and associated frustrations.
I studied French in high school/college and I've forgotten everything! Or I've never studied French before! Wouldn't learning again be hard?
Learning basic French is much easier than you think. This course starts from zero and each lesson is between 5 and 20 minutes long. Lessons are clear and short enough that you can listen several times. Then, the workbook guides you through additional explanations and exercises (which you can correct with the answer key!) It's a perfect tool to study at your own pace.
Don't the French dislike it when foreigners don't speak their language well?
This is a myth. You are far more likely to get a warm reception if you make an effort than if you don't. Even learning polite words and phrases alone will give you better contact with locals. Learning basic French before your trip will give you a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction with every new concept you learn and practice.
