How does it work?

Our classes are uniquely designed to be both educational and social.  We’ve developed the perfect balance of in-class lessons and group events to create a fun and immersive learning experience.

At City Speakeasy, we believe that conversation is the key to success. Our welcoming teachers will encourage the group to converse in French within the first five minutes of class.

To ensure our students get direct and dedicated instruction from our teachers, we keep our average class size under 10 students.

  • All of your learning materials are included.  On day one, you’ll receive your textbook and our proprietary City Speakeasy French Immersion Guide.

Question from Jessica D.
Hi- is the immersion day any of the week or just the day that we paid for? (For example- booked a tuesday class so the immersion day has to be on a Tuesday?)
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Jessica! That's correct. If you book a class on a Tuesday, you will be taking the class every Tuesday for 8 weeks.

Kelsey has been a fantastic teacher! It was a relaxed environment and that really helped me absorb info much faster. Learned very conversational phrases that my French friend was pleasantly surprised when I used some of them on her!

This course was such a pleasure that I looked forward to it each week. I've never had any ability with languages--and was terrified--but this class had me speaking in French right away. The class was small (between 4-6 people each week), which made it very personal. In class we spent time answering questions in French, conversing together, reviewing homework, learning new lessons, and practicing reading comprehension and pronunciation. The instructor, Gregory Rittiner, is smart and funny and an excellent teacher. Il est un professeur merveilleux! Each week he found new ways to get us speaking and practicing what we'd studied, which kept the classes interesting. He supplemented the textbook with additional handouts, including songs and poems, and he made every class lively and fun. There were a lot of laughs. A LOT. But he also challenged us and kept us focussed and on-task. I highly recommend this class and this instructor. J'adore cette classe.

The Beginner French Languguage class through City Speakeasy has been wonderful! All of the people there are super friendly. Gregory, my French teacher is awesome! He is very approachable, entertaining and a great teacher. The class is very interactive and it includes a lot of conversations which help to get you out of your comfort zone. I would recommend City Speakeasy to anyone looking for a French Foreign language class in New York City!!!
