Opening of Coucou Minneapolis

September 20, 2018

Exciting News! Because of its great success on both the East and the West Coasts, Coucou French Classes is now coming to the Midwest! Right now, for the first time, students outside of Los Angeles and New York will be able to learn with our exciting new language method in Minneapolis, MN.

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

Maïwenn was born and raised in Brest, a port city located in Brittany, region famous for its 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. In her research, she found Coucou French Classes and was immediately intrigued by its method and couldn’t wait to hear more about it. After months of exchanging emails and phone calls with founders Léa and Marianne Perret, Maïwenn came to NYC last June and was trained at Coucou’s gorgeous new headquarters in Nolita.

When not in the classroom, you’ll find Maïwenn playing with her 3.5-year-old daughter or catching art and music shows in the Twin Cities! She loves exploring new places, dancing, cooking, matcha tea and chocolate!

This Fall, Coucou will be offering its first classes in Minneapolis, making it the third major city to teach with this method, after New York and Los Angeles.

Our first session starts this October! Group classes will be offered Monday through Saturday at various times. Whether you are “Débutant” or “Spécialiste”, Coucou Minneapolis is dedicated to offer you the same quality method and experience that you would get if you were in NYC or LA. If your schedule doesn’t allow you to attend the group classes, we also offer private tutoring and lessons via Skype.

Check out Coucou Minneapolis’ class offerings HERE  and feel free to contact Maïwenn at minneapolis@coucoufrenchclasses.com if you have any questions. She will be happy to help you find the perfect class according to your needs, interests and level.

About the space

We love being based in Studio Six Mpls, a one-of-a-kind creative facility dedicated to the arts. Located in the heart of the famed Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, we believe that Studio Six Mpls is the perfect space to build a community where students can meet and mingle with fellow francophiles. Free parking, comfy lounge area where you can relax before or after class, film screenings in the big movie studio are just some of the perks of having our classroom there.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with our events and class offers.

And if you are in Minneapolis on Saturday, October 20th, join us for our first event. We’ll be attending Jain’s show at The Fine Line Music Café, so come and groove with us!
