ABC Languages

Chelsea, Manhattan

ABC Languages was founded by Rachel Meyer and Elizabeth Zacheim, who merged their language schools together after discovering how similar their learning philosophies were. They both had a vision to create a language school where teachers could bring out the best in their students, no matter what their backgrounds or capabilities were. Both believed in encouraging each student’s progress. Rachel and Elizabeth do not favor a single teaching method for all students. They recognize that individuals are inspired to learn in different ways. Some students who attend ABC are taking a trip and looking for some beginner skills. They may have no French knowledge, or they may have taken some French in high school. Others may have spoken the language at some point in the past, but need a refresher course. Most teachers at ABC have been working there for at least five years. They are able to creatively design a classroom where students of every ability acquire the language through dialogue and experience. The school offers group instruction classes in many different languages, including Arabic, French, German, Japanese, and Polish. You can choose to enroll for 6, 8, or 12 weeks and decide how long you wish to study. Classrooms here are clean and bright, and instructors are professional and flexible. If you have no experience with the French language, your choice is the Total Beginner course. You will cover introducing yourself and ordering in a restaurant. Those traveling abroad may be interested in a Crash Course for Travelers. The hour-and-a-half workshop will give you some basic conversational language for situations you will likely encounter during your adventure. Intermediate learners may wish to take the French Conversation Practice group. Here, they can develop their language skills in an informal setting. More advanced speakers may explore a French Pronunciation Bootcamp. ABC languages also offers private instruction with flexible scheduling. If you are busy with work or family, you can even schedule your time with your instructor online and learn when it is convenient. ABC Languages has quality instruction available for children ages 4-16, including experienced instructors and flexible scheduling.
