Course Description

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

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

You’d love to take a trip to France and you want to survive without constantly fumbling through a phrasebook…

You’re overwhelmed and you don't know where to start 

You’re scared to speak because you're too embarrassed by your accent... 

...then this program is for you!


Get Started In French

It's an introduction to French to get you having basic conversations.

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

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

  • Speak to someone new without having to resort to "Parlez-vous anglais?" in the first sentence

  • 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?

  • The list goes on!

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.

No fluff. No complex grammar. 

Instead of teaching you absolutely every word or grammar rule you may need one day, "Get 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.

Who am I?

I'm Devy Baseley, creator of 'Get Started in French' and founder of French Speak, my French language school based in Australia.

I'm a very passionate and 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.

A few more facts about moi:

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. 

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 memorise 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.

This method WORKS

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.


If 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.


 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!
