How do we teach language at Fluent City? Instead of steamrolling you with scary full-on immersion from day one, our beginner (Level 1) classes are taught in English so that, frankly, you don’t freak out while you get your bearings with the language. First and foremost, our job is to make sure you’re having fun during the learning process and not overwhelm you. Secondly, all of our classes focus on teaching you how to speak the language with confidence. Our exuberant teachers are very good at clearly explaining how the grammar structures of the language work, but helping you figure out how to use them in a spoken context immediately. This means our classes involve a perfect balance of buidling both your grammar and conversation skills. In other words, they prepare you to use the language in everyday conversation. We want you to sound like a real person, not a weirdo who uses archaic and awkward phrases that you’ll never hear when chatting with native speakers.
Sure, we start with basic phrases and structures, as in “I understand now, thank you.” But we quickly transition you from these basic structures into the way people actually speak, like “Oh, I get it now! Cool, thanks.” So, we’ll teach you what a boring and outdated textbook never does: how to ask someone about if they’ve seen a certain viral video, the price of that awesome hoodie, or where to find the best beer on tap in the neighborhood. Think: pick-up lines, “Homeland” vocabulary, bumming cigarettes and asking locals for the best corner to hail a cab.
New classes start every couple of weeks and tend to fill up very quickly, so sign up today. You can click on a language at the top of every page for the most up-to-date class schedules.
Fluent City strives to create a casual, fun environment, which fits in with most New Yorker lifestyles, and I think they pull it off really well.–D'ariel B.
