City Speakeasy foreign language classes are instructive and social. We want you to truly grasp the language and its broader cultural context, not just memorize phrases. That’s why we keep group classes small, and why we finish every course with a social immersion event where you’ll practice speaking the language conversationally while you enjoy wine tasting, salsa dancing, or cooking coq-au-vin with your classmates. These events are intended to mirror how you might spend your time while traveling abroad.
“We were taking a French class, and saw the need for a more engaging and practical way to learn a language. Our fellow classmates wanted more out of the class, as did we. So we created our own immersive foreign language classes, combining instruction with genuine social interaction.”

The United States has long been called a “melting pot” for the cultures of the world. This idea is truly illustrated in New York, where people from different cultures and speaking different languages exist side by side everyday. Many Americans are missing out on these cultural experiences simply because they don’t speak the a second language. We want to change that.
