Who We Are

Who We Are

Coucou provides group or private French classes for adults in NYC and LA.

You can sign up for group classes small enough (4 or 9 students maximum, depending on the format) to provide you with an optimal amount of speaking time and personal attention.

Combining language with culture is why our classes are simultaneously fun and useful. In class, we will teach you all about the Parisian music scene, the 35-hour work week, and proper French table manners… in French.

Our teachers are all native French speakers for a 100% authentic experience.

The Coucou Method

At Coucou, we have developed and extensively trained all our teachers in our own teaching method over 7 levels, from complete beginner to very advanced.

Level 1 through 5 follow a progressive grammar curriculum, introducing new grammar topics at a realistic pace and infusing the lessons with useful vocabulary and fun activities to practice.
Level 6 and 7 are conversation classes where we will read, watch or listen to various materials to get the students talking.
