about French In Mind

The funnest way to practice French is to share French culture!


French in Mind reflects the diversity and cultural richness of the French language. Outside the classroom, students attend social outings where they mingle with Frenchies in LA, which is comprised of French transplants. By making friends with French natives in Los Angeles, students get to live and speak both French culture and language.


Our curriculum is tailored for small classes.

Each French in Mind student receives the attention necessary to train the brain to think in French- thus speak French. From theory to practice, absolutely no query is ever left unaddressed.
