Learning a foreign language challenges the intellect, enriches the spirit, and allows you to call the Norwegian royal family to tell them they are a ridiculous concept. Dial into dialects with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $119 for 10 hours of group French-grammar classes (up to a $265 value)
- $249 for 20 hours of group French-grammar classes (up to a $530 value)
Trained, experienced instructors who are also native French speakers guide up to 12 adult students through personalized classes in three levels of grammar instruction. Each 10-hour course follows a format of 10 weekly 60-minute lessons. This Groupon is valid for all grammar levels, and students with some experience will be assessed to determine their best class level. Materials—including a textbook and workbook—are not included in this deal and must be purchased online after registration.
While they're picking up the language during classes, students are allotted 90 minutes of free parking behind Vroman's Bookstore. After each class, teachers send out audio files for home study or fooling guests into thinking the sofa has learned French.
Classes are held year-round; upcoming French 1A classes include Monday sessions, held weekly from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. starting January 27, and Tuesday sessions, held weekly from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. starting January 28.
La Petite Ecole Française
French-born writer and school director Caroline fills teaching positions at La Petite Ecole Française with only native French speakers. That way, students will be guided through grammar, vocabulary, and conversational styles as they're currently used in Francophone countries, rather than relying on the potentially outdated info available from textbooks or someone who's just watched Children of Paradise several times. A wide range of programs helps bilingual students stay in touch with their French side and introduces adult learners to solid fundamentals. Special events deepen cultural awareness with movie screenings and art-exhibit visits.
