Lawless French ( is an almost entirely free site that I have been personally writing for more than 20 years. It contains thousands of pages of lessons, listening and reading comprehension, verb conjugation tables, cool tools like the Subjunctivisor, and more.

Everything on the www site is freely available to one and all, with a single exception: le mot du jour. Access to this feature is limited to Lawless French members – it’s bonus content for readers who choose to support my work, which makes it possible to continue creating the rest of the site for free.

Lawless French does not require a log in except to read the mot du jour, or to comment on the blog.

Beyond Lawless French

Occasionally, I discover sites that offer extraordinary features far beyond what I am capable of creating myself. I have partnered with two of them to create co-branded versions in order to bring their special features to my readers.

These sites are distinct from Lawless French, with adapted addresses, logos, and site designs. For my readers’ convenience, both are linked in the navigation bar at the top of every page of Lawless French, but they are not related and therefore require separate subscriptions.
