Mindful Journaling for Fluency

A writing and speaking program to activate your passive knowledge and find your French voice.

 

Is this you?

You are an intermediate French learner and you are on a path of self-reflection and self-development.

Your passive knowledge of French is good enough, but you still struggle when it comes to speaking spontaneously.

You’re an introvert and you love reflecting on yourself and your life.

You like learning autonomously, but need a professional to correct you and show you how you can improve, both linguistically and personally.

Mindful Journaling for French Fluency is just for you

 

What Is This Program?

A 3-week Journaling and Speaking Program

Through introspective prompts, you will be able to feel the direct benefits of journaling in a foreign language, both for you self-awareness and your language improvement. 

An Opportunity to Heal and Grow

Express yourself more freely and more confidently in French, all while discovering and understanding yourself better through the lens of another language, under the close attention of a qualified coach.

Benefits 

It’s about the language, but it’s not only about the language.

It’s about what the language enables you to discover about yourself. It’s an experience that changes you, beyond what any other language school has ever changed you.

Of course, your French will improve. It’s almost a side-effect.

Your life will improve, and that is priceless.

 

Meaningful

Write and speak about the most fascinating subject: you. Learn to understand, accept and bring compassion to yourself, for a better balanced life.

Challenging

Work independently and be inspired to do your best to actually use the words and structures you know.

Accountability

Working with a fixed schedule encourages you to respect the deadlines, enabling you to make time for your improvement, instead of making excuses.

Convenient

Work whenever you want, wherever you are. All you need is an internet connection.

Complete

Enhance your structure and vocabulary in writing, work on your pronunciation, intonation and fluency during the recordings. All while doing your inner work.

Effective

French isn’t the goal anymore, it becomes the tool to your own well-being. Your eyes are off the destination; you are enjoying the journey, knowing that the results are inevitable.

En m’inscrivant, je savais que j’allais améliorer mon français et l’écriture introspective me semblait une bonne idée. Mais j’ai été véritablement surprise de l’aspect thérapeutique de ces activités.

J’ai été vraiment surprise car je suis habituée à réfléchir sur moi-même et je ne pensais pas revivre des émotions aussi fortes à travers l’écriture introspective en français. Réfléchir en français m’a permis de voir les choses autrement, et d’y apporter de la guérison.

The Story Behind 

I discovered the power of journaling in another language when I was a teenager. As an adoptee, I needed to express the ambiguities of my thoughts without hurting my family’s feelings and that was tricky in my own « mother » tongue. Today, I still use journaling in the languages I’m learning as a tool to understand myself and be my better self on a daily basis.

I help intermediate francophiles on a journey of self-discovery to find their voice en français and develop a better relationship with themselves through expressing their thoughts and emotions in another language.

All the time put in was more than worth the effort. I strongly believe you get back what you put in. Your feedback was so helpful and encouraging. You put me at ease every step of the way and I could sense my improvement thanks to your feedback in a relatively short period of time. Thank you!
