Get Started in French : Conversation Basics

Get Started in French

Speak Confidently From Day One | taught by Devy Baseley

Course description

Who is it for?

If you’ve been studying French on and off and you’re still not getting it…

If you’ve been learning by yourself with phone apps, books and YouTube videos and you’re not happy with the results...

If you’re planning a trip to France and you want to survive without constantly fumbling through a phrasebook…

If you’re a complete beginner who doesn’t know where to start...

Or maybe

If you know the basics but you’re too embarrassed by your accent

...then this program is for you!

Speak with confidence from day one 

You don’t have to spend months memorising hundreds of words and dozens of  grammar rules (plus the exceptions to these rules) just to have a simple conversation. 

This won’t work because… the more you learn, the harder it becomes to apply your knowledge in a conversation. 

What if you didn’t have to wait?

What if you could start speaking French from the very beginning? 

Whether you’re a new or rusty learner, Getting Started In French will teach you practical everyday French without making you feel confused or frustrated. 

You'll be able to have some simple conversations from the very first day.

I promise, it doesn't need to take months and months of study.

After completing this program, you’ll be able to do a lot of cool things like...

  • Confidently ask for a table in a restaurant in France. Imagine how good this would feel!

  • Order a glass of bubbly in a Parisian bistro without having to walk a mile to find a restaurant with an English menu. Won’t you be proud of yourself?

  • Make small talk in French! Introduce yourself, talk about your job, your family, and more.

  • The list goes on!

No fluff. No complex grammar. 

Instead of teaching you absolutely every word or grammar rule you may need one day, Getting Started In French teaches you the essentials clearly, step-by-step and in plain English so you are confident in using what you’ve learned.

You'll be speaking in no time at all.

I'm Devy Baseley, creator of 'Get Started in French' and I'm also an experienced teacher fluent in both French and English.

Over the past 20 years of experience, I've worked with hundreds of students to figure out the simplest and fastest way to get to conversational French.

Self study with a helping hand

You can learn from home but you don’t have to learn alone!

The entire program is available on-demand, online

You get unlimited access and you can study at your own pace. No need to waste time commuting to attend evening lessons in over-crowded classrooms. 

At the same time, you’re not completely on your own. 

When you get stuck, you can turn to your native French teacher

Unlike most online courses, this program comes with a 60-minute private lesson to ensure you can apply what you’ve learned. You’ll have 60 minutes to ask all of your questions and practice your pronunciation. 


Throughout the program, I’ll share all my tips and tricks on pronunciation as well as memorising of the phrases you learn.

The lessons focus on quality over quantity, making sure you can confidently use your new French skills in real life. 

Here’s what you’ll learn

Plus 2 bonus lessons if you sign up now

For a limited time, you’ll receive these additional lessons free of charge.

BONUS 1 (for a better accent) - The “Intro to French Pronunciation” Course: Start With A Great Accent From Day One

The 7 step-by-step modules will take you all the way from "I could NEVER speak in French" to "Woohoo! I'm not ashamed to speak! I can finally do the R sound!" During this course, you will learn how native speakers move their tongue and mouth and how you can begin to sound more like them. 

BONUS 2 (for travelling) - The Menu Decoder: Make Sure You Get The Gourmet Food (Not The Gruesome Food)

You know, French people eat snails and tripes and they like their steaks rare. If you're not a fan of any of these foods, the Menu Decoder will help you avoid them. And, if you're vegetarian or you're allergic to seafood, it can literally be a lifeline for you. 

This method WORKS

And you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what past students have said.

“I really want to do a HUGE shout out to Devy who has made me feel so confident coming to Paris by myself, on my first trip ever to Europe. Today, I walked into a cafe and said "bonjour, je voudrais un chocolat chau sil vous plait" to get my delicious hot chocolate.

Now, I don't know about the spelling of it all but I can say that I pronounced it correctly, the waiter understood and he even taught me how to say "take away" but now I can’t remember how to say it. 

The program has helped me so much in the lead up to me going away! I have loved both the 6 week 'Get Started in French' program she runs as well as the private sessions, even though I only had time for 2 before I left!

Merci Devy!”

"Devy has created an easy to follow and flexible program for beginners! Having the content online was great as it allowed me to complete the program with many other commitments, and also allowed me to go back and re-listen when I needed to

The material was always easy to follow. As well as providing French vocabulary, Devy also gave a lot of assistance with pronunciation-both in video workshop and audio recordings. I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to learn French!"

My promise to you

I keep it engaging, I keep it positive, I keep it fun. Here is some of my philosophy:

If you’re looking for someone who will make you feel bad for falling behind or not doing your homework, I’m probably not the right teacher for you.


f you’re looking for someone to come alongside you on your journey, cheer you on, keep you consistent and accountable, provide realistic strategies, smart shortcuts and effective lessons, then you’re in the right place.

Become a savvy traveller (instead of “the typical tourist”), a confident speaker (instead of a “complete beginner”) or a passionate French learner (instead of a “rusty learner”). Getting Started In French is here to help you do all this while having fun!

So, are you ready to start your journey?

I can’t wait to teach you!
