What You'll Get


Like a pair of toy handcuffs, language unites people, and like a pair of cuffs with a missing key, the language bond can last a lifetime. Forge linguistic connections with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get six hours of group foreign-language classes (four classes over two weeks) at Philolingua Language School in the Gaslamp Quarter (a $90 value). Learn your choice of Spanish, English, French, Italian, German, or Catalan.

Philolingua's instructors are native speakers who promote conversational learning, which helps students absorb the new language so that it quickly becomes a part of their linguistic canon. Join a class of three to six students, who all hover around the same experience level and learn together with six hours of education divvied up between two 1.5-hour classes a week for two weeks. You will receive a private consultation aimed at determining where your tongue currently sits regarding ability and which goals it hopes to accomplish, before you acquire crucial foreign phraseology, a discerning feel for vocal rhythms and inflections, and a working bank of vocabulary. When you're exiled for intentionally building faulty birdhouses, rest assured that you can start anew with a new language and a new land that is completely unfamiliar with your unsavory birdhouse-building practices. Check Philolingua's class schedule for language availability.

About Philolingua Language School


Barcelona-born Philolingua Language School founder Jordi Lluch knows what it's like to learn a foreign language. After extensive linguistics studies and more than 23 years teaching six languages through Berlitz language school's various locations, Lluch established Philolingua. Throughout his years as both student and teacher, he worked to synthesize a learning approach that would mimic the way children pick up their first language: hearing it spoken, responding back, and getting a feel for grammar through intensive practice. The school's resulting approach aims to quickly establish fluency and build practical vocabulary. Using an intuitive, conversational style, a foreign-born instructor shares native speaking skills for real-life situations, such as asking for directions or demanding an entree not listed on a menu.
