About this app

Welcome to the free official application of Français Authentique. My name is Johan and I created Français Authentique in 2011 to help you learn to speak French in an enjoyable and natural way.

If you can understand but have difficulties speaking in French then Français Authentique is for you. Don’t just take my word for it, there are more than 300,000 delighted members of our community that have benefited and made remarkable progress with my easy to follow system.

This application was created for you to fit easily into your daily life and allow you to consume my free content easily from your mobile devices. Each week I put at your disposition a podcast (MP3 & PDF) and the videos can be found on my YouTube channel. All of my articles will be published automatically on the application so that you do not miss a second!

If you have just discovered Français Authentique I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to the community. Take your time to explore the site and the concept of Français Authentique. Subscribe to my free course “The 7 Rules of Français Authentique” to understand the method. Do not hesitate to contact me or to come and join in the discussion on our lively and welcoming Facebook page.

If you follow me already I am grateful for the confidence that you place in me. I am very conscious of how lucky I am to be able to count on such a fantastic community. I hope that this application is both helpful and enjoyable for you. If you have any ideas or thoughts about how it could be improved please let me know.

NB: Français Authentique is most suitable for non French speakers who already have a good level of comprehension or at least a basic understanding of French. The programme is based on a natural style of learning largely through listening and repetition so a basic foundation of French is highly advantageous.

Excellent app for learners who are intermediate and above. If you have difficulty speaking French because you often need to pause to find the right form/ending in your memory, then this app is for you. If you follow Johan's advice and listen to the same podcast multiple times, you're likely not only to improve your speaking and listening skills but also to start THINKING in French. I find it useful to repeat aloud phrases and expressions that I particularly want to remember.

Français Authentique is great for anyone who's at a high beginner - intermediate level and wanting to improve their French. The app is quite simple but easy to use. It's great to have all videos and podcasts (which are fantastic!) in the same place and you can read along with the podcasts on the screen without having to download the PDF. My French has really improved since discovering Français Authentique.

Formidable! Merci! I have been learning French for some time but have struggled with comprehension of spoken French. That has been changing thanks to Johan's videos. Johan's materials are absolutely the best I've found. Please note. This app is NOT for beginners. You will need a reasonable level of written comprehension to use this app but if you have that then this is awesome with playable spoken French and the text side by side. Perfect choice of vocabulary. Just fabulous.
