10 Ways To Support French Today

Author: Camille Chevalier-Karfis

On this Thanksgiving week, we would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of you who have made our dream possible.

As you probably know, we are a small husband-and-wife company: we decided to move (back) to France after 18 years in the US, to raise our daughter next to our family.

We created French Today to help English speakers master the modern French language, French like it is spoken today. We are very happy with our “new” life, and remember every day that this is all possible thanks to you.

Alors, merci, merci mille fois, mille mercis à vous tous !

If you like what we do, in particular the daily Facebook mini-lessons, Twitter, the French tips in our weekly newsletter or our weekly blog, here is how you can help us.

1 – Leave a review

You can leave a quick review easily on our audiobooks on this page.
This is really important to us since your comment can help other people trust us, and buy our audiobooks.

2 – Talk about us

Word of mouth is the best advertising there is.

Think about those around you who could be interested by French Today: your colleagues, fellow students, teachers, any friend or family member is studying/has studied French? Someone who travels to France? Or someone who enjoys French wine or food?

And if you need business cards, just contact us, we’ll send some to you by mail.

3 – Click our community buttons, share our posts

At the top of all the pages of this site, you’ll see buttons: Facebook Like, Tweet and Pinterest. If you use these social networks, clicking these buttons would help us tremendously: they get the word out and they help French Today rank higher in searches.

So, whenever you are browsing the site and you like what you are reading/hearing, please remember to click :-)


4 – Leave comments on our blog

Again, the more comments, the more visibility. It makes us feel good when people tell us they like what we do. It’s very important to us.

5 – Review a product on your own blog

If you have a blog, we’d love it if you could review one of our products.  In exchange for your unbiased review, we’ll reimburse the cost of the product to you: contact us for more info.

6 – Enroll in our affiliate program

You have a website, or a blog ? Send us some traffic and get 20 to 30% of the sale generated by your site! We are using a special program that can track back the origin of the sale: you’ll have a special link on your site: if people click on your French Today link, and buy something, then you get paid. It’s that easy. More details on our affiliate program

7 – Write an article about us

Member of the press? We have an interesting story (self-starters, author of 100+ hours of audio, raised in France, moved to the US for 18 years then returned back to the north of France) and a unique approach to teaching. Don’t hesitate to contact us for an interview or quotes…

8 – Become a blog writer

You know France inside out, or love French cooking: if you feel you have expertise in something France-related, and you are dependable and serious about contributing to our blog, we’d love to hear about it. Contact us.

9 – Support us on Patreon

With Patreon, you can make a monthly pledge for French Today. You can pledge 1 Euro, 5 Euros, 10 Euros… It’s your choice. Becoming a French Today Patreon will give you an exclusive access to the recording of the tips I share in my weekly newsletter.

10 – Buy our downloadable French audiobooks

This one is rather obvious… that’s how we make a living! Browse our products to find the best tool for learning French

Each and every one of these steps would help our business grow. Thank you to all our patrons who made moving from a large US city, quitting well-paid jobs and returning to France possible. We love our life close to our family in a small town, and we hope French Today keeps growing so we can raise our daughter close to our loved ones.

Can You Understand Today’s Spoken French?

It’s not just slang. The French everybody speaks in France today is NOT the overly enunciated, extremely formal French usually taught to foreigners.
