Group & Private French lessons in NYC, LA & Minneapolis

Coucou French Classes is a language school for adults which offers intimate, culturally savvy, native-taught French classes. We have been based in New York since 2013 and have offered classes in Los Angeles since late 2017 and Minneapolis as of Fall 2018 as well.

In each of the cities where we operate, we aim to create a community, allowing students to meet and converse with fellow francophiles over a glass of wine, browse our library, attend film screenings, etc in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

As of March 2019, we are now offering online classes, allowing you to learn French with Coucou’s method and teachers from the comfort of your own home!

The Coucou Method

The Coucou Method

At Coucou, we pride ourselves in teaching you French the way it is commonly spoken in modern France. Our classes focus on conversation and informal interactions, while still following a thorough grammar curriculum.

The social aspect of language classes is very important to us, and we truly believe that if you have fun in class you’ll have an easier time navigating the finer points of French grammar!
