If you want your child to succeed with language skills that are globally recognized and used — keep reading...

Dear Fellow Home School Mom,

As a primarily French speaker, I knew the whole world had just opened to me, when I began reading English books in any subject, including economics and scientific documentary with almost no effort.

I used to think that only people with careers related to a certain topic could understand these books... but it really happened to me.

I also used to think that I would need a dictionary for each page of a new book written in English, but that's not the case at all!

Speaking a second foreign language allows me to converse with more people around the world, travel with ease, learn about different cultures, via books, and the best part is—my French online program builds your child's capacity as a global citizen.

I now enjoy watching movies in their original versions because I do not spend the entire movie reading subtitles.

Not only that, but I also have built a certain speed in reading subtitles and watching Bollywood movies. I want that for your child too!

"I'm sharing this to show what's possible for your child!"

If you could wave a magic wand and create your child's ideal lifestyle, what would it look like? Here are some ideas. (It's okay - Indulge in the possibilities, even if they seem wild!)

  • Set them up for future success with language skills that are recognized globally.
  • Build their capacity as a global citizen.
  • Enable them to command the English language with greater ease.
  • Learn how French can help them increase their learning abilities in other subjects.
  • Improve their vocabulary.
  • Increase your child's opportunities to make meaningful relationships and create powerful business connections in the future.
  • Enable them to pursue International job opportunities.

"Sound amazing? How to know if you are ready to add French to your child's curriculum..."

Igniting your child's curiosity about the world is the most powerful way to serve them and let them make a difference.

In fact, you've probably been thinking about doing this for some time, and now you're hungry for a solution. 

You're in the right place, if you:

  • Teach at least 3 subjects and can't fit teaching French in your calendar.
  • Do not speak a word of French.
  • Are already doing enough around the house and would rather keep your sanity .
  • Worry that your child's French accent will be far from perfect .
  • Want a close to perfect French accent for your child, so they can fit in.

It's easy to feel like you're trapped, when you're a home homeschool parent and working so hard, in putting together the best curriculum for your child.
It's hard to imagine there could be a suitable French program - I know what it's like, and you’re not alone.

"Just 8 years ago, I was a stressed out and worried restaurant assistant."

In my first career, in the USA, I helped manage 16 - 20 employees during the holiday season. I was answering phone calls from clients to managing supplies, learning the point of sale system, and training new employees —all in English! My biggest worry, was answering the phone when suppliers called. Everyone seemed to talk way faster than I could remember from my English class, plus we did not spend much time on English phonics. Luckily for me, my manager at the time was from Europe and also spoke English as a second language. She taught me about a magic button on the phone, to slow down the speed of messages, left by the suppliers.

This was a Loud wake up call.

"I didn't want to live in stress and fear."

My big "A -HA!" moment came one day, when I saw my husband reading his fifth book of the year. I heard a clear voice in my head that said, "You need to start reading books too, and discover all the words you did not learn in college." I felt such a relief. This new idea was scary...But liberating. I started reading books with a French/English dictionary at first, and noted new words each time I found one. Then I upgraded to an English only dictionary, which I found to be of great help.

"Deep inside, I always knew that phonics was a big issue for many foreigners, including myself."

3 years after my big "A-ha!” I gave birth to my first child at home, with a midwife. I naturally decided to home school my child, and work from home. This is when I saw how little phonics were taught to foreigners in their country of origin, and this is the same for anybody learning French as a foreign language. 

I started coaching adults in French from all walks of life, and helped them to know how to pronounce French words the right way, so they could be understood easily, and speak confidently.

"I felt deep inside, a calling to help set the French basics right from the beginning—starting with young learners"

I was grateful, that my background in hotel management and restaurant experience, from Paris, France, had prepared me to provide powerful and unique French courses. French courses, that are influenced by my knowledge of the French Culture, the people of France, its regions, food, wine and many attractions of this beautiful country.

I interact weekly with French Citizens, with French speaking friends, but most importantly with members of my family, who are also French citizens. This means that I'm aware of all the latest French information on education, culture, and entertainment.

I speak 4 languages, and I'm a Francophone (A citizen of a French colonized country.)

"It makes me happy to pass on a proven French school method that my father learned French with, to a new generation of young learners – and by doing so I'm helping them, make a difference in their future."

The method I teach is the same one my father learned French with years ago, before my country of birth became independent. This is the same method that I used to learn French, and I’ve seen its true power each time a French native asks me, “Vous êtes Française? (Are you a French Citizen?) The French schools used this method before World War II. But at one point in history, many French schools deviated from this method and found that the high school students could not read properly, when they were presented with new words that they’d never seen before.

If you're ready to add French to your child's curriculum, then I invite you to join French Made Easy for Homeschoolers!

Here are the outcomes I intend for your child to celebrate after completing the French Made Easy for Homeschoolers program;

  • Start speaking French in 8 weeks.

"Here's how to participate in the French Made Easy for Homeschoolers:"

The online live trainings are provided in a very intimate group of only 4 students. The guide books, full of visual aids and easy-to-follow templates, are available for your child to work with at their own pace. After your child is enrolled, we will dive into the first training module in our live session. The remaining two modules will follow within the next 7 weeks. This happens on Wednesday's, starting in, spring 2016. The training meetings happen at 4pm Pacific Standard Time depending on the group your child has been assigned.

During this period you are eligible for your child's 30 minute focus coaching, at a special price. The Homeschoolers French Mastermind Club also includes an exclusive Google group, where you get to network with other parents supporting their child's French learning. It's a great place to connect and get valuable feedback on what other parents are doing to support their children.

You and your child will not be doing this alone —you’ll have incredible support and encouragement that will ensure your success.

"I’m not a homeschooler; can my child still join this program?"

Yes, definitely. We are happy to serve the many parents who feel their child can benefit from learning a second language through our program.

"What is the appropriate age to be part of this program?"

The French Made Easy for Homeschoolers program is designed for children age 7-12 years old.
However, it works for older students, too. If you are a parent of a teenager, please contact us and let us know about your specific needs.

"What if my child cannot make it to all the live courses?"

We strongly suggest that parents commit to making sure their child attends all classes and is engaged by being in front of the computer during each live class.
However, we do offer a great discount for students who re-enroll in the same program to make up for missed classes or as reinforcement to what they've learned.

"What if I’m not computer savvy?"

We use Skype to deliver our program—which, due to its simplicity, has become widely used to keep families in touch around the world.
Skype also has self-explanatory, step-by-step how-to guides that teach you how to open a new account, and it’s all free. Your child will be able to join the class via a computer, tablet or TV.

This program is not for you, if you:

  • Want to keep your kids away from technology.
  • Feel that you might be overbooking your child.
  • Always ask for your child's approval before enrolling them in a brand new subject.
  • Always give in when your child says that they cannot do something. (Remember the first time you learned to tie your shoe? It seemed impossibly difficult at the time, but eventually it became easier with practice.)

"It's time to take action, now — your child's bright future is waiting for you to take the next step."

Whether you just want to expose your child to French, or would like them to be become a fluent French speaker, this is the right place to start. This investment will come back to you many times over, and will continue to pay off for years to come.

The tuition for the French Made Easy for Homeschoolers program is just $397.

It is a tiny investment compared to the many long-term positive effects on your child.

And the reality is, it's really costing you more NOT to do this program.

There are many great programs out there for self-study; but how many of the people who buy self study programs actually do the necessary action steps to speak the language? Everyone needs accountability, and I will be there to provide it. All I need from you, as a parent, is to put your child in front of the monitor before each class, then leave all the hard work to me.

These online classes in beginning French are the best French classes I’ve taken. The teacher is very attentive and enthusiastic. I like the fact that I have a private coach who is there to answer any questions I have and help me through some complicated grammar. It is like having a private tutor. The classes have a rapid pace and are never boring; the hour and a half flies away just like that. I like the way the grammar is presented – very detailed and I like that it is presented in French. I have taken some French in the past but let it deteriorate, but this immersion technique brought back a lot of it without any efforts on my part. I enjoy the classes a lot and look forward to continuing to the next course.

I really enjoyed taking this class. It allows me to do it from home, or wherever I happen to be, as long as, I have an internet connection. You get personalized feedback all the time. Best of all, you get to practice French pronunciation every single class, which is pivotal in order to communicate and be understood in French. You not only get to practice, but also you get to understand the reason why you pronounce and spell words a certain way, just like French children learn in primary school. I speak three languages and my personal experience is been that what language college classes are missing, regardless of what language you are learning, is a detailed emphasis on the phonics of the language. That is vowels, consonants and letter group pronunciation. That is very important if you want to get rid or diminish your accent in any language. Marina does and excellent job at correcting and perfecting your accent. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to improve the way they speak French.
