About Us

About Us

“We’re two French cousinsfrom Toulouse and Pariswho teamed up in 2013 to create a school and unique teaching method that would bring a fresh, modern approach to language instruction. We wanted our classes to remain small and be taught exclusively by native speakers. At Coucou, our students expand their language skills and understanding of French culture in a fun and convivial environment. We’re proud of having created a vibrant community of francophiles across the US.”

Léa and Marianne Perret, Founders
