Your Roadmap to Speaking Conversational French
A Step by Step Approach...
Let's face it: learning a foreign language is not easy.

My first experience trying to master a foreign language came when I received an opportunity to spend a year living abroad. I figured that after a few months surrounded by native speakers, I would be well on my way to fluency. After all, how hard could it be? 

Boy, was I wrong.

It turned out that after four months of living abroad, I was still barely able to have a basic conversation with the locals. Although I could quote my grammar textbook's explanation of the use of the subjunctive by heart, I was useless when it came to actually conversing in the language.

Walking into stores or restaurants, I was mostly reduced to grunting and pointing at what I wanted. I was not able to make friends, talk to girls, or have any significant social interaction with the locals.

Eventually, after months of trial and error, I stumbled upon a series of techniques that rapidly improved by ability to communicate effectively with native speakers.

The most important thing I discovered was that if I wanted to learn how to converse in a foreign language, I needed to focus most of my study on speaking and listening. Once I replaced the time I was spending on flashcards and grammar drills with time actively listening and speaking, I began to see dramatic improvement.

Changing my approach to account for these principles freed me from the "paralysis by analysis" that had been making my speech slow and stunted and finally allowed me to start speaking more fluently and more confidently.

I started One Month Lingo to help expats and travelers develop conversational skills in their target language, in the absolutely shortest time possible. Our Dialogue Deconstruction Method approach allows you to immerse in audio of native speakers in your target language from your first lesson.

But first a warning: this approach is not for everyone. If you are looking for something that is "easy" and doesn't require much effort or attention, or if you want cute games or "apps" that require no more than clicking a mouse, then this isin't for you.

But if you are you are ready to finally learn how to speak (not just read) conversational French, and are willing to put in a bit of time and effort each day, read on to find out how you can quickly build your confidence and improve your ability to converse in French.

About One Month French 

One Month French is an online course designed to teach you conversational French over 30 lessons. Each lesson contains a series of mp3 audio exercises designed to train your brain how to listen and respond naturally in French. 

You'll work with live audio of native French speakers conversing in common scenarios (e.g. going to the store, checking into an hotel), sequenced to progressively improve your ability to understand native French conversation. 

When you sign up, you'll get instant access to the member's area where you'll be able to start learning and practicing immediately!

The Four Keys to Our Rapid Language Acqusition Method
  • Dialogue-centered - Our dialogue-centric approach helps you to learn all of the necessary grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation within the context of real conversation - not flashcards or grammar books.
  • Audio-based - by working with audio, you master the ability to speak and understand oral French, not just recognize words on paper.
  • Guided imitation - active listening and repetition of native French speakers improves pronunciation and helps achieve fluency.
  • Progressive learning - each new lesson builds upon prior material to constantly reinforce what you've learned.
No-nonsense Learning Approach

Most language courses are designed for casual learners who are content to slowly improve their foreign language skills over months or years. One Month Lingo courses are designed for serious learners who are looking to rapidly improve conversational skills in their target language.

Based on a proven methodology used to teach FBI agents, and diplomats, One Month French is ideal for travelers, foreign exchange students and others who need to rapidly build practical speaking skills in French. 

“After months of struggling to understand basic conversation...this really helped me master spoken conversation.”

I already knew the basics, but I was never able to figure out the conversational aspects. I wasted so much time with Rosetta Stone... I wish I had found this sooner.

David Kooperman

I started the course just a few weeks ago and I'm already able to hold basic conversations with my French speaking friends. If you need to learn French quickly, I highly recommend this course.

I took French classes in high school but it never really stuck once I was out of school. This method really works for learning how to understand spoken conversation.

Frequently Asked Questions
How are One Month Lingo courses different from other language programs?
We created One Month Lingo to meet the needs of travelers who need to rapidly improve their conversational speaking skills in their target language. Traditional language classes focus on a linguistic approach, which relies on long-winded grammar explanations (like detailing how the subjunctive traces its roots back to Latin). Instead, One Month Lingo courses are aimed at increasing conversational proficiency. We avoid force-feeding you abstract grammar concepts, and instead teach you practical skills that you can use right away.
What do I need to know before starting the course?
Although the course is self-contained and does not require any outside knowledge, some familiarity with basic French will be helpful prior to starting the course (e.g. understanding of verb tenses and some basic vocabulary). If you are an absolute beginner, we recommend proceeding through the course at a slower pace to make sure you understand all of the covered material before moving on.
How much French will I learn? Will I be fluent?
The goal of the course is to allow you to speak with native French speakers – not necessarily “fluently,” but well enough to understand basic conversation. After completing One Month French, you should be familiar with approximately 1000-1500 of the most commonly used French words, which account for approximately 80% of the words used in everyday French.
