This class took place on 02/02/2017 and was taught by William. This was a fun class. It seems like a very friendly school and is decorated nicely. I wound up signing up for French 1 with the school and am excited for classes to start.

My husband and I took this class to help with future travels to Italy. The class was interactive and we are now more confident in our verb conjugation. We feel like we got a good foundation that we can build off of in the future. We'll be more confident next time we travel to Italy.

Attended: Spanish Beginner: Immersive Language Lessons

Went for all ten weeks of Spanish classes with Ashley at City Speakeasy, and it was incredible! Ashley is a fantastic teacher, very warm and welcoming. I did a semester of Spanish way back when so it was a great refresher, but I'm sure it'll be a good beginner course too. I liked that there was more emphasis on conversation, and great use of external tools such as songs and videos. 5 stars for sure!

I took Beginner Spanish Class with City Speakeasy and it was fantastic! I hadn't practiced Spanish since high school and it's amazing how quickly it came back with the great teachers. Practicing both in the classroom and in social settings was really beneficial. It gave us a chance to truly apply what we were learning in a practical setting beyond the classroom. I thought the course was super helpful - and not to mention fun! If you're looking to learn a language, why not have some fun while doing it. City Speakeasy is worth checking out if you are trying to learn a foreign language in NYC

The Beginner French Languguage class through City Speakeasy has been wonderful! All of the people there are super friendly. Gregory, my French teacher is awesome! He is very approachable, entertaining and a great teacher. The class is very interactive and it includes a lot of conversations which help to get you out of your comfort zone. I would recommend City Speakeasy to anyone looking for a French Foreign language class in New York City!!!
