Our Story

It all started when our founder, Michelle, failed Chinese at university.

After years of thinking she was ‘too dumb’ to learn a language, she realised she just didn’t learn in traditional classroom environments. Since then, she’s mastered both Spanish and French through self-study in the real world. And learned that the secret to fluency is to understand yourself and how you learn best.

Our Mission

Empowering self-learners around the globe with immersive French content

Our Method

Microdosing – The best way to learn French on your own

Microdosing is made for today’s world, where it’s difficult to find time for learning. By exposing yourself to immersive French content each day, you build fluency over time. 

It sounds super simple, but this is the exact method Michelle used to teach herself Spanish and French in just a year and a half. (Not at the same time. As awesome as she is, she’s only human.) All our resources are designed to help you microdose in French. 

From our quick audio bites on Instagram, bilingual podcast interviews you can put on repeat, and bite-sized course modules exploring life with Parisian locals.

Our Values

The Naked French learning philosophy

You’re never too old to learn
In fact, according to many linguistic studies, adults perform better than children when exposed to the same learning method!
There’s no such thing as a language genius
At the end of the day, talent means little compared to a desire to learn, a willingness to work, and a plan to get you there.
The best way to learn French is your way
Some people might need the structure of a rigid learning plan, while others flourish on their own path. Find whatever works for you!
Learn new languages faster than ever before
There are millions of resources online – lots of them free. It’s never been easier to find French content that interests you to speed up your learning.
You’ve got to be vulnerable
Language learning is all about opening yourself up to new things, including failure. The journey is intimate and raw – just like being naked.
