Come and join our fun, culturally-savvy events throughout the year – art shows, film screenings, wine tastings and everything in between!
While the backyard parties we organized in our former Williamsburg space were legendary, we plan to continue the tradition in our new Nolita space! We celebrate our French cultural heritage by hosting parties for such annual events as Bastille Day and Mardi Gras, but sometimes Coucou parties are just an excuse to get together and meet classmates, teachers and students of other levels in a casual setting! Class outings are a regular occurence as well – we’ve taken groups to various local bars and restaurants, and sometimes to a game of Escape The Room (in French!).
Immersive French Outings is a series curated by long-term Coucou teacher Pia. Pia is well-connected in the New York art scene and has taken students to movie premieres, French restaurants, the opera and to visit a local French artist’s studio. A great way to practice your French and have a unique cultural experience all at the same time!
Friday Feb 15 – 7:45pm to 9:45pm
For a post Valentine’s Day treat come mingle with fellow Coucou students! We’ll screen the first two episodes of Netlix’s off-beat French rom-com series “Plan Coeur”! After the screening, Coucou teachers Léa and Victoire will break down vocab from the episodes with a slang workshop and will teach you the Dos and Don’ts of French dating! Drinks and popcorn will be offered.
“Plan Coeur” (“The Hook Plan”)
