FluentBrooklyn employs young, enthusiastic, and articulate professors to teach language in an approachable and casual learning environment. Its coterie of ebullient instructors can introduce New Yorkers to the mysterious worlds of French, Spanish, Italian, German, English, and Arabic. Most Level 1 classes—designed for those with zero familiarity with the language, or those who wish to relearn a language from the very beginning—construct the basic scaffolding for master palaces of fluency by funneling basic sentence structure, pronunciation techniques, and indispensible verbs into pupils' frontal lobes.
By the end of each Level 1 class, most students will have the skills to effortlessly introduce themselves to strangers while conquering conjugations and pronouncing their pets' names with a new accent. These group classes can contain a maximum of 15 people to ensure ample individualized linguistic tweaking, as necessary. Classes are offered for two hours a week for 10 weeks, or three hours a week for seven weeks, check the website for specific schedules for each language. For beginners wishing to blossom through the intermediary stage into full-fledged fluency, FluentBrooklyn offers four more levels of learning, including simple subjunctives, tricky idioms, and guerrilla pronunciation.
