The most efficient way to learn French.

French is the language of love and diplomacy. It’s spoken by more than 250 million people and in 29 nations around the world. If you want to learn it efficiently, you need discipline, dedication, and the right tools to hotwire your brain into language mastery mode. That’s where Brainscape comes in.

Our French mobile flashcards are the result of 100s of hours of curriculum-creation by the world's top linguists and publishers. And, we’re proud to say, our Learn French curriculum is one of the most advanced products in the language learning space.

Learning a language the logical way

Learning a new language is like building a house: it should be done from the foundations up. And yet, so many French curricula waste time teaching you words and concepts that are totally irrelevant: like the names of kitchen utensils or farm animals. What you should be learning first are the most important words and phrases so that you can start using the language the day you start learning it!

That’s why Brainscape has painstakingly ordered the French grammar and vocabulary from most practical (most likely needed in basic conversation) to most specific throughout the entire program. And it’s because of this practical progression of concepts that Brainscape is the app to learn French more efficiently!

Boosting language acquisition with cognitive science

We drive home your language learning abilities using Intelligent Cumulative Exposure. This is a system of introducing concepts incrementally, at gradually increasing difficulty, in the context of REAL sentences, while repeating the tough concepts in the right intervals of time based on your confidence levels. ICE is also a method that explains grammatical nuances in PLAIN ENGLISH rather than hoping you just"figure them out" through immersion.

This is exactly how the human brain learns: through cumulative exposure and spaced repetition. And by working with your brain—rather than against it, or even in spite of it—Brainscape’s comprehensive curriculum works so much more efficiently and effectively than any other language app on the market.

Brainscape’s flashcards app helps you learn faster

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of French content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.

With Brainscape Learn French, you get:

  • A carefully tailored curriculum that builds on previous concepts and guides you from beginner to conversational at your own pace.
