Maïwenn Kussian, instructor and head of Coucou Minneapolis operations, is excited to welcome you to our beautiful space in Northeast Minneapolis.

Maïwenn was born and raised in Brest, a port city located in Brittany, region famous for its rugged coastline and delicious crêpes! Her passion for languages and traveling brought her to Edina, MN, in 2004, where she taught at the French immersion school. After almost 15 years teaching French in various school settings, she decided that she wanted to find a better method to help her students become better speakers. After some thorough research into teaching pedagogies, Maïwenn came across the Coucou method. Its philosophy resonated with her beliefs, knowing that the best way to learn French is to do so in a fun conversational way, all the while following a progressive grammar curriculum to lay the foundations for a better understanding and acquisition of the language.
