Fearless French Gender

Take our grammar-slaying, fluency-boosting November challenge and master those pesky French words like "y", "en", or "le","la" and "les" once and for all!

Start Date: 1 November

Level: A2 / B1 (Upper Beginner / Lower Intermediate)

Does your confusion about French gender stop you from expressing yourself confidently in French?

Do you regularly find yourself mumbling your articles and adjectives to try and hide the fact that you don’t know if a word is masculine or feminine?

You’re not alone!

French learners everywhere have nightmares about French gender...

  • Knowing whether a word is masculine or feminine
  • Choosing to use the correct article (un/une, le/la) or pronoun (mon/ma, ton/ta) to use with each word
  • Remembering the correct adjective form to agree with the gender of the word

And doing all of that while face-to-face with a native French speaker!

  • Is it "Paris est une très jolie ville"? ... OR "Paris est un très joli ville"?
  • Should you say “mon ami”, “mon amie”, “ma ami” or “ma amie”? And what about “mes amis” vs. “mes amies”?
  • And what's the difference anyway?

It’s easy to feel like you’ll never get your head around it and you’re destined to speak clumsy, imperfect French forever.

Well, not so fast...

Help is at hand!

I’ve created a unique 30-day challenge, "Fearless French Gender", that will help you learn and internalise French gender naturally, so you can use it confidently and make the right choices in conversation with native French speakers.

No more boring grammar textbooks.

No more memorising unhelpful rules.

And most importantly...

No more embarrassing French gender mishaps when you chat with your French-speaking family and friends.

Introducing the September Challenge:

"Fearless French Gender"


Here’s how the challenge works.

The challenge is based on an exciting original story in French that develops over the 30 days of the challenge.

This is a brand new story, written exclusively for this 30-Day Challenge.

We’ve created the story to be jam-packed with hundreds of examples of French gender.

Every day, you’ll receive one new chapter of the story, along with an insightful video lesson and simple exercises to help you understand how French gender works in the story.

It'll take you about 15 minutes each day.

All you have to do is show up every day…

Over the course of the month, the daily immersion will help you absorb French gender naturally, until articles just “sound right” and you can use them instinctively and confidently to bring life to your spoken French.

The result is that you'll be able to speak and understand French confidently without worrying about making mistakes or getting stuck for words.

You’ll be able to speak French more freedom and fluency, because the articles you need will already be where you need them - on the tip of your tongue!

Here's What's Included...

The concept is beautifully simple!

Every day, for 30 days, you’ll get:

  • One 250-word chapter of our French story (jam-packed with examples of French gender in context)
  • The written story plus audio book (so you can read or listen...wherever you are!)
  • An insightful daily video lesson with our instructor, Diane. (She'll explain the different articles used in the story)
  • A short daily practice exercise (to help you remember what you’ve learned)
  • Discussion with dozens of fellow challengers in our interactive Facebook group (so you can discuss the story and get answers to questions).

We’ve carefully structured the entire 30 days, so all you have to do is turn up and get stuck in!

Frequently Asked Questions

What level is the challenge for?
Both the story and the lesson content is aimed at A2-B1 level. (That's high-beginner to low-intermediate) In other words, this is for you if you've been studying French for a little while (or maybe a long while!), can understand at least some French, but struggle to use French gender in a comfortable and natural way.
How can I access the challenge?
Mobile, desktop, laptop, tablet... The challenge is super user-friendly and you'll be able to log on from anywhere!
What exactly will I learn? How will this challenge help me?
During this challenge, we'll focus on French gender and how to understand articles. You'll see these same articles, in different examples, over and over in the story. This means you'll learn the articles to the point where they're effortless and automatic. You'll get daily lessons from Diane, where you'll learn how exactly different articles are used. This means you'll develop an intuitive and native-like understanding of how to choose the correct articles in different situations.
What if it's too hard, or my level is too low?
To make the challenge achievable, we've kept each chapter short - only 300 words! This means that you'll be able to easily make it to the end of the chapter each day, even if it does take you a little longer. However, the daily video lessons will give you all the support you need, as you'll have clear, professional explanations for how different articles are being used in the story. This means that, even if you're really unsure about French gender right now, just by watching and studying the daily videos, you'll learn to think about articles like a native speaker by the end of the challenge. If I had my way, this is the only way students would ever learn French!
What's so special about this "story" method anyway?
Most French students try to learn the articles through rules. This doesn't work, and is extremely stressful for you as a learner. Why? Because there are lots of so-called "rules" and it's impossible to hold them all in your head at the same time while you're speaking. It's also not a natural approach ... native speakers don't learn grammar with rules, after all! With the "Fearless French Gender" challenge, you'll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on the grammar... you concentrate on understanding and enjoying the story! As you're reading and listening to the story, the articles will begin to lodge themselves subconsciously in your brain. It doesn't happen right away - in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of the 30 days, you'll have a native-like command of French articles that will amaze you.
I'm not sure I can commit for 30 days
Your daily commitment is only 15 minutes. This is because the principle of the challenge is little and often is the best way to learn. 15 minutes is a pretty manageable amount of time to devote to your French. You can fit it in comfortably: • before breakfast • during your lunch break • after dinner • ...even while waiting for the bus! The power is in the consistency - working at it for a short time every day. You'll be amazed at the huge progress you make from simply showing up every day to work on one area of your French! Remember, you get the audio of the story, as well as the text, so you can easily take part and keep up wherever you happen to be!
What if I am unhappy with the challenge?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with the challenge, contact me at any point during the challenge and I'll issue you full and prompt refund.
How long do I have access to the course after the end of the challenge?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
