Why Should I Learn French with Freestyle?

Our mission: to connect people through language! How? With an effective, fun, and proven model which features an innovative curriculum and frequent interactive opportunities to practice French in relevant contexts.

Increase your cultural currency and learn French as it’s truly spoken!

Our secret sauce? #TeamFLC: dedicated, professionally trained language instructors guide students through our culturally rich ‘authentic materials’ (i.e. those made by native French speakers for other native French speakers) and interactive activities to help students start speaking right away! Add our student favorites: Saturday ‘Cafes’, field trips, and events take language outside of the classroom!

Studies show second language acquisition requires meaningful interaction and opportunities for spontaneous expression. Students don’t benefit from tedious grammatical exercises, but in fact learn a foreign language better when they engage in relevant, everyday communication. *Don’t get us wrong, we use plenty of grammar! We excel, however, in making it do-able and fun, taking away the stress often experienced in traditional models.

Build fluency while having FUN! Our community of engaged adult learners shares your passion for language and culture.

Join us for any of our ‘cafes’, bilingual wine tastings (#winethegreatfluencybuilder), polyglot museum tours, foreign film screenings, and more to see language come to life!

Which Level Is Right For Me?

We offer multiple levels – for the complete beginner to the advanced speaker! Find the closest level which matches your experience with our NEW online quizzes!

Take the quiz for beginner series placement (French I(A), French I(B), French II(A), & French II(B))

In between beginner and intermediate? Take the quiz to see if you’re ready for early intermediate! (French ‘Recap’)

Take the quiz for intermediate series placement (French III(A), French III(B), French IV(A), & French IV(B))

*Please note, your best level fit is the one where you can speak confidently about the various vocabulary themes and grammar structures! Being ‘familiar’ with concepts often does not translate to the ability to hold fluid conversations using them. Our learners are ready for the next level when they can speak about the current themes in that class!

Hear what our students are saying

“The teaching methodology, which balances "text-book" style lessons with both practical and cultural knowledge, has helped me learn more than I could have expected to learn in this short of a time. Beyond this however, what I enjoy most about Freestyle is its emphasis on cultural immersion and community.”

RobertFrench Student

“I love how FLC uses film, literature, music (including karaoke!) and technology, but above all, the teachers, staff and students are amazing.”

JimSpanish Student

“Quality teachers, year round classes, & a unique curriculum all make language learning at Freestyle a success.”

KaylaFrench Student

“Students are from all demographics and backgrounds. Freestyle is the best place to go without having to go back to college. I can't get enough of Freestyle!”

RaquelSpanish Student

“Having fun is the key here and learning is always a pleasure.”

MichaelItalian Student

“The curriculum and teaching style at FLC is well suited to adult learners. I especially love the emphasis on learning via cultural media, like French music & movie trailers, which make me feel connected to the real world rather than learning in a vacuum.”
