The Sponsor reserves the right to refuse, withdraw, or disqualify any entry at any time it deems, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, to be in violation of the Official Rules or otherwise in breach of the terms of the Sweepstakes.

The Sweepstakes begins on July 13, 2023 at 10am ET and ends on July 16, 2023 at 11:59pm ET (“Entry Period”). To be eligible for the Sweepstakes, entries must be received within the specified Entry Period.
- How to Enter:
Eligible Entrants can enter the Sweepstakes by submitting an entry via the online form (enter your first name and email address, and answer one question about Coucou French Classes correctly). As a participant, your entry must fully meet all Sweepstakes’ requirements, as specified in the Official Rules, in order to be eligible to win a prize. Incomplete entries or those that do not adhere to the Official Rules or specifications will be disqualified at the Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Participants may only enter once. Fraudulent methods of entry or circumvention of the Official Rules may result in the Sponsor invalidating such entries and removing them from the Sweepstakes, as the Sponsor may decide in its sole discretion.
One Grand Prize shall be awarded. The Grand Prize consists of ten (10) group classes for one person (value $3,625). Six winners will be awarded with one (1) group class and one (1) course book (value of $185). Three winners will receive a Coucou Book Bundle consisting of one (1) course book and one (1) exercise book (value of $63). The Grand Prize shall be redeemed within two years (by July 16, 2025), and the Second Prizes within one year (by July 16, 2024), after which such prizes will expire.
The prizes consisting of French classes are limited to group classes and are subject to availability; private classes and workshops are not included in this Sweepstakes. Winning Entrants must abide by Coucou French Classes’ standard policies stated on the website. Classes are either online or in-person (no hybrid). Each winner, upon acceptance of a prize, is solely responsible for all expenses and taxes related to such prize. The winners shall not request a cash equivalent or a prize substitution.
Pursuant to the Internal Revenue Service, the value of the Sweepstakes’ prizes may be included in a winner’s gross income. A winning Entrant may, therefore, receive a 1099 form in the amount of the prize and must provide the Sponsor with a valid Social Security number or taxpayer-identification number before the Sponsor can award the prize.
By accepting any of the prizes, each winning Entrant grants permission for the Sponsor to use such Entrants’ entry, likeness, name and image for purposes of news, advertising, marketing, public relations and trade, as more particularly set forth in Paragraph 9, without further compensation unless and to the extent prohibited by Law.
The total number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning.
- Selection and Notification of Winner:
Each winner will be selected by a random drawing under the supervision of the Sponsor. The Sponsor will notify each winner on July 17, 2023 by email delivered to the email address provided in the entry application. If a winner of any prize either (1) fails to claim its prize on or prior to 11:59pm on July 24, 2023, or (2) is deemed to be ineligible due to violation of the Official Rules or any Laws, such prize shall be forfeited, and an alternate winner will be selected by a random drawing of the Entrants not previously selected. Only one prize per Entrant shall be allowed. If due to a computer, printing, production or other error, more prizes are claimed than are intended to be awarded for any prize level per Paragraph 6 above, the intended prizes will be awarded in a random drawing from among all verified and validated prize claims received for that prize level. In no event will more than the number of prizes stated in Paragraph 6 above be awarded.
The Sponsor neither shall be responsible for nor have liability to any winning Entrant for such Entrant’s failure to receive notice of an award due to (x) such Entrant’s email security settings that may cause emails to be marked as spam, junk or otherwise quarantined or blocked from delivery or (y) such Entrant having provided incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. An Entrant’s receipt of a prize offered in this Sweepstakes is conditioned on such winning Entrant being in compliance with all applicable Laws and the Official Rules. IF ANY WINNING ENTRANT VIOLATES ANY OF THE OFFICIAL RULES, SUCH WINNING ENTRANT (AT THE SPONSOR’S SOLE DISCRETION) WILL BE DISQUALIFIED, AND ALL PRIVILEGES AS A PRIZE WINNER WILL BE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED.
