Alright, we know you can already introduce yourself and make a damn good first impression. In French 2, we’ll teach you how to take the conversation further. This class is for you if you're familiar with the basics and can say simple sentences in the present tense.

Meet twice a week for 1 hours. 20 sessions in total.SELECT DATE & LOCATION
Each class meets at the same time for 10 weeks - creating consistency in your language learning.
We believe in hands-on learning, rather than getting lost in a textbook or sucked into perfection of grammar.
We exclusively hire instructors with a conversation based and student-centered approach to teaching, providing the best in-class experience.
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.
Reflexive verbs. Direct and indirect object pronouns. Imperative and passé composé tenses.
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.
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.
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.
French 2 is a course that meets twice per week with a total of 20 sessions.

Dana has taught college and high school students since 2015. She believes in the role learning a language plays in having an open minded approach to life. For this, she decided to dedicate her career to teaching Arabic and French to people coming from different cultures.
Dana is great at explaining the material slowly enough for us all to be able to connect with it.

Jonathan started teaching for Fluent City in 2018. He grew up bilingual, speaking English and Spanish at home; in addition, he learned French while studying at Grinnell College, Iowa, and while working as a language assistant in France for two years. His approach to teaching foreign languages is mixing culture and grammar to find easily-reproducible expressions; and, his philosophy is 'repeating ideas in different contexts brings the best in us'. Outside of work, he loves playing Civilization VI and The Settlers of Catan.
Jonathan is attentive, friendly yet stays on topic, patient, and comes up with exciting fulsome class plans and activities.
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
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.
All of our group classes meet for a total of 20 hours of live instruction. Some courses meet 2 hours once a week for 10 sessions, while others meet 1 hour twice a week for a total of 20 sessions.
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!
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.
