How To Shop, Chop and Eat in FRENCH

OUI! I Want The Early Bird Special

Perhaps all of these feel like a far away dream... And right now, you wish you could speak French more naturally. You're sick of French waiters switching to English every time you try to speak French!
Real French for Real Life with moi, Ida... 
Married to Denis, a French cook who is also trained as a charcutier-traiteur, I have been in the business of teaching French for 14 years. My students cut across over 30 nationalities. I am a serious "gourmande" with a no-boulangerie-left-behind policy. 
I founded eFrenchCafe.com 5 years ago. Ever since then, I have continued to showcase France and the French lifestyle to people who want more flavor, savoir-faire and "et voilàs" in their life. You want to know what those French words mean?

Join me as we go on a virtual trip to France for just 30 days

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I get my course?
Once the course starts, on January 1st 2017, you will begin receiving a daily email from France with the video and/or worksheet "du jour". 

I'm so frustrated. I already have many books, MP3s. Is this program really different? Will this really help me?
Absolument! You are in the right place! You receive regular emails to make it easy for you to stay on track. I created this so that it is really easy for you to learn French. Scientific studies show it takes 30 days to acquire a new habit. It's the compounding effect working for you instead of you working hard and not understandign why you don't get results.
I've got you covered. I will take you step-by-step to the next level. Added to that, you get access to a secret group where you are able to ask me personally any question. There are the live webinars where you can join and the office hours in the secret group.

Is there a refund?  
I share a lot of free content online (check me out on Periscope, on YouTube or on Facebook live) to allow you to know if we are a match. The price of this program will increase after January 1st. Buy it now and study at your own pace. Secure this rate and you will have lifetime upgrades. I have tried to make the price irresistible, a no-brainer for you, and affordable for the largest number of people so therefore no refunds are available.
If you still have questions, contact me at ida@eFrenchCafe.com, somebody else might be wondering about the exact same question. And even if you don't know me yet, trust me when I say I care for you and your experience. 

I'm really busy. How much time will this take each day?
What your schedule allows you. Anytime from 30 minutes a week to two hours. I would recommend putting aside 15 minutes every day to play/learn French. And don't be surprised if sometimes you lose track of time and really get into it. Play with it. Rediscover the pleasure of learning something new and the satisfaction of really mastering it.

I'm a tough learner. I seem hermetic to foreign languages. Will this really help me?
You are in the right place! This course will gently guide you to experience a new way of learning. Just show up. Just open your daily email from France. You'll discover how your blocks or fears are actually doorways, and always have keys.

Too hard? Have a bad memory? Can't travel to the country? Can't afford it? Too old/young?
Research suggests that learning a foreign language can hold Alzheimer's disease at bay for longer (4.5 years). So help public health and get your petit derrière in Become A French Foodie in 30 Days. I can't help you until you're IN!
Unleash your inner Frenchie and get ready to come to France. Voilà.

How long will I have access to the course Become a French Foodie in 30 Days?
You get lifetime access. And did I tell you you get all the updates for free?
