Elena's testimonial for Frantastique

"After graduating from Yale Law School, I decided that it was time to prepare for my forthcoming job at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

It was in that moment that I discovered Frantastique, which rapidly became my new hobby. It is probably one of the funniest and most useful French courses I have taken so far.

Merci beaucoup, Frantastique team! Because of you I am even more excited about moving to France! :)"

Keeping motivation strong

“I want to learn how to speak French!”

There’s always a good reason to learn a language, but it is often a daunting task. Nights spent in front of a textbook don’t necessarily translate into progress, and motivation fades away little by little.

The French language stays fresh with Frantastique! Our French course learns from you too: each lesson is personalized to your current level, and the exercises are corrected on the spot. Our AI engine analyzes your answers and requests to prepare your future lessons. You can also tell us when you no longer want to review certain concepts and expressions.

Progress at your own pace: the content of our lessons will change according to your needs. Frantastique spots key obstacles and helps you overcome them with revision and practice.
