All classes are currently taking place online via Zoom. When we reopen, students will have the option of finishing their class online or in-person.
Le Petit Coucou is Coucou’s younger sibling, finally allowing us to offer online French classes for children and teens starting in the Fall of 2020. It’s never too early to start learning a foreign language – in fact, the earlier the better! It’s amazing how fast and seemingly effortlessly children can absorb new information.
For toddlers (1 – 5 years old), we focus on learning French through songs. For children (6 – 10 years old), new vocab is introduced through a variety of fun and interactive activities. For teens (11 – 17 years old), we offer a progressively thorough language program similar to Coucou’s adult curriculum.
Whether your family is multicultural and your child already speaks some French at home; whether he or she is already enrolled in a dual-language immersion program and needs some tutoring; or if you simply want your little one to acquire a fun new skill in a stimulating environment – we’ve got you covered!
Let your little one embark on a magical, musical French journey with our teachers Marie and Quentin!
With years of experience as professional singers and singing instructors for both kids and adults, Marie and Quentin have spent the last few months optimizing the lessons for an online format, incorporating props and colorful backgrounds to keep the children focused and entertained. The sessions are kept short (30 minutes) to best capture your little one's attention and imagination and introduce them to classic French children's songs. Parents or supervisors are encouraged to sing along. Cuteness will ensue!

It's never too early to introduce children to a new language, whether that language is a part of the child's family background or not!
You can schedule private tutoring sessions for your child, or register them in a small group class of up to 5 children of a similar age and level of proficiency. Class content will be tailored to fit each group's specific needs. Activities will be kept short and sweet, and optimized for a virtual learning environment. You'll be amazed at how quickly you start noticing progress in your child's French expression. Group sessions last 45 minutes; private lessons can be scheduled as frequently as you wish!

Most of us at Coucou started learning English as teenagers, so we intimately understand how crucial these years can be when it comes to developing a passion for other languages and cultures.
Language instruction in middle and high schools is often found lacking, which is a real missed opportunity to capitalize on the learning ease of youth - it's evidently harder to start learning a language as an adult. In addition, tech-savvy teens are uniquely equipped to take full advantage of remote learning tools. Make the most out of these confusing times by enrolling your teenager in an online French class at Coucou!

Even though Coucou’s focus has historically been on adult classes, many teachers on our team, some of whom are parents themselves, have experience teaching children and teens, and are excited to translate that experience to an online setting.
If you are curious about a particular teacher’s background and credentials, feel free to ask us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org – we would be happy to provide additional information!

Yes! At first, parents will have the option of forming their own groups of up to 5 kids of a similar age (siblings, classmates, friends etc) and scheduling classes at a time of their choosing. If you don’t have anyone to form a group with, please contact us and we can add your child to an existing group that matches their age and French proficiency level. Later on, we will be adding our own group class offer, organized by age groups, at fixed times.
Yes, all of our teachers are native French speakers!
