Language & Culture Classes for Adults
We built Fluent City on the belief that curiosity brings enrichment to our lives, leading to better connections to the world around us. Today, we’re bringing people together through popup events and month-long immersions to discover food & drink, art & design, language and beyond.
Driven by Passion
Our community has used their skills for everything from advancing their careers, to falling in love, to impactful not for profit work all around the world.
Rooted in Learning
Fluent City started in 2011 in a Brooklyn apartment as a casual French conversation group, with an emphasis on social learning that struck a chord with the community. We quickly grew to four cities, covering 10 languages with 23,000 members.
Our mission is to redefine Liberal Arts and enrichment education for the 21st century. Guided by subject matter experts, we’ve developed exclusive programming in popup events and multi-week immersions.
The instructor, John, supplements course material with his extensive knowledge of Russian culture. Lessons had a good mix of grammar, conversation, and lively humor.
This was a terrific way for me to dust off the cobwebs after many years of being away from the language. It surveyed many topics in a low key, entertaining format. The teachers' depth of linguistic knowledge and resources such as relevant videos and study aides served to boost learning motivation.
I really enjoyed my class. Leila is a great teacher, we had very varying material: the book, training exercises, apps, online exercises, videos, songs and many other things. It was a wonderful way to learn, being in a small group in an online class also helped. I feel like I learned a lot but even more importantly, the class gave me great motivation and the tools to also learn and continue to study by myself.
Our instructor, Christine, is awesome!! She made the classes fun and I learned so much!
Such a fun and interactive class! Really learned a lot and we all moved together at the same pace.
It unfortunately was not for me. I asked for support as an adult student as its hard to work and take classes. I asked for the course materials the day before class in order to allow me to prepare. It didn't seem to happen without reaching out to remind the instructor. As an educator of adults for 20 years, a class without an agenda or syllabus and not considering the needs of your students is not set up for success.
The teacher is very knowledgeable, patient and efficient. She really makes everyone feel welcome and slows down the pace when needed. She is a great teacher (laoshi) and the other students in the class are supportive of one another.
Excellent teacher. Very engaging and innovative. Unfortunately the levels of proficiency varied a lot — and this slowed us down.
Great course and excellent teacher! Great mixture of learning, practicing, and listening to music/videos. Learned a lot in ten weeks from absolutely zero French knowledge to being able to construct basic sentences.
Was a great class. The teacher (David Tarsha) was excellent and really made learning fun and easy.
