Learning a foreign language challenges the intellect, enriches the spirit, and opens up a treasure trove of crank-calling possibilities. Dial into dialects with today's Groupon: for $40, you get six hours of foreign-language classes at Philolingua Language School (a $90 value).

Founder Jordi Lluch brings 23 years of linguistic know-how to Philolingua Language School, populating classes with native speakers trained in teaching a number of foreign languages, including Spanish, French, and German. During an initial consultation, lingual experts unite pupils with four to eight classmates equipped with similar skill sets. Teachers employ a conversational approach during each 90-minute class, encouraging students to hone vocabulary, grammar, and communicative skills in the context of real-life situations, such as purchasing a train ticket or heckling a mime. Instruction oscillates between speaking and listening exercises, and language learners will benefit from personalized attention designed to spackle brain wrinkles with practical words instead of antiquated phrases and Three Dog Night lyrics. Some reading and writing assignments supplement the curriculum, and classes meet on a regular schedule of twice-weekly sessions.

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.
