Best Foreign Language Classes in Manhattan, NYC

We live in a big world - but thanks to technology and multiculturalism, it is getting smaller. Everyday, we encounter people from all walks of life, expressing themselves in a variety of languages. Do you ever wish you could join in? You’re not alone; many Americans believe it is important to speak a second language, even though 75% of us only speak English.

At City Speakeasy, we want to help people master a foreign language. Our NYC classes are designed to immerse you in a new language, teaching you in a way that’s fun, engaging, and leaves you wanting to learn more. Through our courses, you’ll learn from native speakers and award-winning teachers, practice in real-world social settings, and meet other ambitious students looking to speak new languages.

What We Do

There’s no shortage of foreign language classes all over NYC, but how many of them offer you a chance to speak like a native? At City Speakeasy, we’re a foreign language immersion school with courses that emphasize the importance of actually using a new language by conversing with others, rather than memorizing words and phrases. This social element makes learning a new language easier (and more fun).

When you take a class from City Speakeasy, you’ll get excellent instruction from talented teachers. You’ll also get individualized attention thanks to our small class sizes. You’ll even put your new skills to use with our “Immersion Events,” field trips designed to help you practice speaking in a social setting. Before long, you’ll be chatting as naturally as a native speaker!

Learning New Languages

A second language is an incredibly important skill in today’s super connected world. When you can speak to another person in their mother tongue, you can connect on a deeper, more familial level. And in a place like NYC, where a new foreign language echoes around every corner, you need a class that will get you confidently conversing with others - quickly.

Which language do want to learn? Our foreign language immersion school offer 8-week courses in the following languages:

Each course includes a City Speakeasy “Immersion Event.” These out-of-class events give you the opportunity to practice your language skills in the real world. You’ll gain valuable language experience, and have lots of fun!
