The Coucou headquarters are located on Centre Street in the heart of Little Paris, in a remodeled townhouse steps from several major subway lines.

We have designed a welcoming space, featuring 8 classrooms as well as a lounge area with a well-furnished library. Coucou’s admin staff is always available to meet current and prospective students and to answer any questions.

Coucou is *the* best place to learn French in NYC and I plan to continue taking their conversation courses for many years to come.

I recommend Coucou classes wholeheartedly. Their classes inspired me to read a novel in French for the first time.

The curriculum is clear and accessible – especially for a busy New Yorker like myself… I’ve made tremendous progress on my journey to understand and speak French thanks to Coucou!

I was SO excited to have found Coucou French class through my research! They are SO much better than Alliance Française!
