Conversation First

Speaking is at the heart of all of our classes, and in an immersive setting, you’ll get even more opportunity to practice critical speaking and listening skills.

The class was not only educational but also social which made a motivating and relaxed atmosphere to practice speaking Spanish!

Here's what to expect

Step 1

THE NITTY GRITTY

Reflexive verbs. Direct and indirect object pronouns. Imperative and passé composé tenses.

NERVOUS? DON'T BE

From day one, you'll be engaging in conversation with your instructor and your classmates. This will prepare you to feel confident and comfortable when speaking with natives.

Step 3

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO

Ask someone out on a date. Order drinks at a bar and chat up the bartender. Talk about how you spent your last holiday. Explain your daily routine.

Step 4

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Start here if you've already completed French 1 with us, or if you've studied French before and can confidently conjugate verbs in the present tense while speaking.

About the Teacher

Born and bred in the Bronx to an Italian family predominantly hailing from the Sorrento Coast, Italian is Robert's second language, and French his adopted language. He has taught French for 12 years and Italian for a whopping 27. He is also a classically-trained pianist (but also has fun with Ragtime!) and performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall. As if all that weren't enough, Robert was also on the NYU Ballroom Dance Team. He loves independent, adventure travel.

Lexee is not a "by the book" kind of teacher ready to have you speaking French.

About the Teacher

With a background in theater, Lexee is a French instructor who likes to get her students learning through fun and unconventional teaching methods. Having lived and worked in France, she understands that conversing with native speakers can be initially intimidating, but aims to help her students with any fears or hesitations they might have to get them speaking confidently. When not teaching French classes, Lexee is probably working on her next screenplay or rereading a Camus novel.

What students are saying
Lexee is clearly very experienced with French and is thorough in her lessons and emails with review and information about homework. She always seems genuinely excited about our progress.

Vincent wants to connect you to French culture

About the Teacher

Vincent was born and raised on "La Cote D'Azur" in Cannes, where they hold the best film festival in the world (and you can't convince him otherwise). He's a full-time French tutor at home to his American wife and he speaks fluent French and Spanish. In France, he taught French, English and Spanish to students from all over the world and he has a passion for the way language can connect people. Vincent loves encouraging students to participate in engaging dialogue by using lessons that are full of pop culture references. He focuses on building his students' confidence to speak and conquer the fear of making mistakes and likes to set goals and help others see real progress and have fun along the way. When not teaching, you can find Vincent playing guitar at home or enjoying all the amazing eats NYC has to offer (despite his best attempts to stick to his diet).

What students are saying
He is funny and open and engaging and wants students to relax and be ok with accepting they might not know everything right away but the only way to learn is to try

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we're typically asked, along with our responses

Do you hold classes on holidays?

We know our students and teachers probably have holiday plans, so we do not hold classes on holidays. The full list of our skip dates is New Years Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and a holiday break between Christmas and New Years.

How many times do you group classes meet?

All of our group classes, except Essentials, are 2 hours once a week for 10 sessions. Our Essentials classes are 1.5 hours twice a week for 12 weeks.

Can I cancel my enrollment or transfer to another level?

Plans change—we get it. You have until 7 days before the start date of your Group Course to make any cancelations or same-level transfers. After that, there are no refunds under any circumstance. During the first 2 weeks of class, however, if you feel your level isn't the right fit, reach out to [email protected], and we will transfer you to a better fit, free of charge!

What happens if I miss a class?

Most students do miss a class, or two, and we’re here to help ensure that you won’t fall behind despite any missed classes. We’ve set up our curriculum to make lessons easy to follow along outside of class, and your teacher will reach out to your group each week with a summary of materials, topics, and homework covered in-class.
