Real French for Travelers Part 2

Situational Travel French

Real French for Travelers

Part 2 Situational Travel French

The course is available in two parts (Foundations of French and Situational French) or as a complete course that includes both.

This course is for you if you've gone through Part 1: Foundational Travel French, OR if you've studied French before and want to review beyond the basics, learn travel-specific vocabulary, and practice listening comprehension.

Imagine yourself on a trip to France and being able to speak French. This Part 2 course will take you beyond the basics and into grammar and vocabulary that you'll encounter in various travel situations. (That's why it's called Situational Travel French!) You'll see, it's super practical! And not as hard as you think.

Before you know it, you'll be able to speak in restaurants, hotels, and with local people. Set aside your phrasebook, which only teaches sounds you don't understand. (Usually, others don't either.) Why not learn REAL French for your trip to France?

This course also features dialogues of realistic travel situations, QuickStart phrases to speed your progress, exercises for mastery (along with a comprehensive workbook), and much more.

An online course fits into your schedule, unlike a traditional class. Repeat the lessons as often as you like.

You’re investing a lot in your trip. Invest in communication in French. You’ll be glad you did!

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.


"Real French for Travelers online course is such a great guide in making 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. After traveling to France several times, I know that any effort to speak the language is appreciated and greatly enhances the travel experience! I'll be bringing this course and its resources on my next trip! "

“Real French for Travelers” online training is excellent! This training provided the right topics at the right pace for me to learn French. The videos are like having a class, but have the advantage that one can review as much as one wants. Kyle explains the topics very clearly. Besides her natural teaching talent, I also think that 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. There are also QuickStart phrases that are fantastic for travel as they cover everyday topics that one for sure will need. I also enjoy the listening exercises as one has to get familiar with French! My experience studying “Real French for Travelers” could not be better!

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!)

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.
