Strommen is not your typical language school and our students are not typical either. Founded in 2006 our goal was always to make a program that catered to Angelino’s unique needs and while retaining and cultivating the best teachers LA has to offer. Our students are motivated, intelligent and busy individuals. We schedule the classes around your busy life and understand that in order for you to succeed, your French studies need to be fun and convenient. What better way to learn than sitting down with a local French teacher in your neighborhood, cracking open a book and sipping on a coffee.

Why Study French?

What makes you a Francophile? Are your kids attending a French school? Planning a trip to France? Married to a French person? Or are you spellbound by the beauty of the French language and culture?  France’s arts, architecture, cinema, fashion or food (baguettes, fromage, vins, pâtés)? It’s no wonder why France is the most visited country in the world. What textbooks and computer programs won’t tell you is that French is rich with dialects, slang and idioms that vary from one area to the next. After all, French is spoken all over the world (France, Switzerland, Belgium, Quebec, African nations, and many vacation destinations).

The Importance of learning “Real French”

While learning standard French is important, it isn’t what the waiter at the Bistro or your mother-in-law will be using. When you use a little slang you’ll make instant friends of Frenchmen.  At Strommen you will learn to use the words that have a direct line to the French soul. But don’t worry, if you want to learn the subjunctive, or write the perfect business email, we’ve also got you covered. No matter where you travel to, whom you speak to, or what your goals are, there is the perfect teacher for you at Strommen.

PRIVATE FRENCH CLASSES NEAR YOU

There is a local Strommen French teacher right next-door. With a Strommen teacher you will speak French in the first class. A private session is more effective, efficient and convenient than enrolling in a group class. Your Strommen teacher will be a perfect fit for your needs and learning style. We equate 10 hours of private classes with a full semester in a traditional college or group class. Think of it as a personal trainer, but for your French skills.  Private classes are perfect for you if you have studied French in the past and are unsure where to jump back in. We can pick up right where you left off. We can take it slow in the problem areas and pick up the pace in the areas you need to review.

GROUP FRENCH CLASSES LOS ANGELES

French Classes Los Angeles Strommen

Check out our Group Class Schedule here. Strommen Group Classes are a fun, social, and an even more affordable alternative to our private classes. We organize traditional classes like “Beginner French” as well as Workshops like “French Conversation” or “Traveller French”. Our classes meet at French restaurants or other culturally relevant locations. For a full list of our group classes and enrollment info head over to our Group Class Schedule.

SCHEDULE YOUR FIRST CLASS

Just tell us when here

Scheduling is convenient (7 days a week, any time of day), and you can start right away (demain?). You can easily reschedule, so you will never miss a class and get left behind. In a private class, you do the speaking. There are no other students to hide behind or take up all of the teacher’s time. Your teacher will make sure you progress at your pace, rather than the pace of the best (or worst) student in the class. Strommen further enriches your learning experience with free podcasts, videos, online resources, Strommen Language Meetups around LA, group classes, workshops and even an annual immersion trip to Italy.

Getting started is easy, just fill out our student application or call and we will help choose the best teacher for you.

We decide on a specific teacher based on a number of criteria including a professional gut-feeling. We know our teachers well and like to make a personal recommendation based on your needs. We will make sure it is the perfect match. As a student, your Strommen teacher will be highly dedicated to you, but if they happen to go to France for vacation or you feel like switching it up a bit, rest assured you can always get a substitute or alternate teacher. The locations for our private classes are very convenient (believe it or not we probably have a location down the street). Many of our teachers meet at cafes, at their home office, or anywhere you like. We believe it’s fundamentally wrong to really learn a language from a text book, audio CD, or computer program. It’s time to get away from the computer, grab a coffee and meet your Strommen teacher to have a real conversation!
