Have a Plan to Finally Overcome the Intermediate Plateau


Discover Fascinating Stories About the French-Speaking World


Learn the Differences Between Formal and Informal French

How does the program work?

Instead of wasting hours wondering what you should do next to improve your French, Build a Strong Core will give you a detailed roadmap with daily lessons. 

Build a Strong Core’ is designed to help you make learning French a habit. However, you don’t have to complete a lesson everyday.  The course is self-paced so you can take as much time as you need to finish it.

In every lesson, you’ll find different activities to develop the skills you need to move forward:

• A story about the French-speaking world to learn some interesting facts and new vocabulary in context.

• A grammar section to address the most common mistakes made by intermediate learners and how to fix them.

• A phonetics section to understand the pronunciation differences between formal and informal French.

• Interactive exercises to test yourself and make sure that you understood everything.

“Since retiring I have been trying to resurrect the French I knew at school.”


Christina, Australia

“I have found lots of resources online and elsewhere, but InnerFrench has been quite different.

The materials were varied and interesting, Hugo’s video lessons were clearly spoken, and the explanations of grammar and common errors cleared up several things I was confused about.

Hugo also explained the reasons for some of my frustrations and how to deal with them, such as why ‘normal’ spoken French is still so hard to follow in spite of all I have learned.

Having completed the 4-week course, I know I have much to gain by going through the materials a second and third time.”

Any questions?

There are enrollment periods because it’s easier for me to help my students when they all start the course around the same time.

Next enrollment will be at the beginning of March 2021.

The price for the course is €149 and you get a lifetime access.

My courses go a lot more in depth than my free content. They are designed to get one big step closer to the advanced level so the lessons are organized with a clear progression, targeted grammar sections and plenty of activities to practice.

The program is designed for lower-intermediate students (between upper A2 and B1 on the CEFR scale). As a rule of thumb, if the first 40 episodes of the innerFrench Podcast are at the right level for you, then this program will be the right level, too.

The program is entirely in French, just like my podcast and videos. Translations are provided in the transcriptions for tricky words and expressions, but the lessons and the grammar explanations are in French. I break things down into digestible pieces to make sure you get everything.

No, it doesn’t. The lessons are recorded. But Anna and I will be available to answer all your questions during the course.

No, I don’t give private classes anymore. If you’re looking for a tutor, I’d recommend checking Italki.

Do you have a different question?*

*Just in case: Hugo doesn’t give private classes  😉
