French 3

We all want to live life in the present—but sometimes we need to talk about the past. French 3 is for you if you can say most things in the present tense and are ready to expand your knowledge into the past. You'll also get into various forms of slang that’ll make you sound like a native.

Our Group Classes are small, social, and interactive - averaging around ten students per class. This setting allows for ample speaking and instructor time to learn your next language.

Consistency is Key

Each class meets at the same time and place for 10 weeks - creating consistency in your language learning.


Experiential and Effective

We believe in hands-on learning, rather than getting lost in a textbook or sucked into perfection of grammar.


Passionate Instructors

We exclusively hire instructors with a conversation based and student-centered approach to teaching, providing the best in-class experience.


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


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

Step 2


You should start here if you've completed French 2 or French Essentials with us. If you've studied French before and can confidently conjugate regular, irregular, and reflexive verbs in the present tense while speaking, you should also start here.

Step 3


Differentiate between Y and EN. Comparatives and superlatives. Direct and indirect object pronouns. Passé composé and imparfait tenses.

Step 4


Talk about your past and tell stories about your life. Telling someone what you did over the weekend. Talk about your goals and accomplishment. Discuss French film and literature.

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.

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.
