The popular foreign language courses previously known as Sam Teaches French have taken on a new name, location, and offerings, giving Williamsburg residents no excuse to brush up on or learn another language. FluentBrooklyn is located at the corner of Ainslie St. and Manhattan Ave., and teaches classes in French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and German.
Business is booming after Sam Maher & co. expanded the studio space, increased the number of languages offered, brought on additional instructors and ran a successful promotion on LivingSocial last month. There’s also a location in Manhattan – appropriately named FluentManhattan.
Starting in May and June, FluentBrooklyn will be hosting language and cultural workshops related to each of the languages offered at the studio. Topics ranging from Italian cuisine, to Spanish slang, French beer and Italian-American immigration here in Williamsburg will be covered in these two-hour sessions, for $35 a person.
A group trip to Paris is also scheduled for July.
