Connect with our Cultural Experts - in Person


You dreamt of learning a foreign language since... who can remember? Maybe it is because of your job, or maybe you fell in love with a foreigner, or maybe because you fantasized about strolling along the Champs-Élysées (baguette in hand), drifting along the waters of Venice in an ancient gondola, or breaking a sweat while running with the bulls in Pamplona? Whatever the reason is, we get it and we want to help fuel your connection to these places.


When it comes to learning a foreign language, the best way... we repeat... the BEST way is to learn from a native & professional instructor (someone born and raised across the ocean). Why? Because the basis of fully understanding a foreign language is digging deeper and understanding the culture behind it. Native instructors, in their essence, are natural-born culture bearers. They eat, sleep and breathe their culture, sometimes without even realizing it. 


JP Linguistics provides lessons taught by native instructors who are eager and excited to bring their language and culture our students. We've scoured New York City for the best and brightest and we've been praised on sites like Yelp for our lessons. Come, give us a try!

- Some helpful FAQ'S -

Where are lessons held? . . .

Great question! Lessons can be held at the convenience of your office or home location within Manhattan -OR- in our SOHO classrooms (154 Grand Street New York, NY 10013). Lessons can be held outside of Manhattan, but incur an additional fee.

What should I expect from private lessons? . . .

Fun, indivudialized language instruction! Private Lessons are meant to be focused on your needs and expectations. Be ready to speak the foreign langauge during the first class as our instruction is done in the foreign language. Do not be afraid, you will be able to follow. You know more than you think! Our instructors will tailor lessons to match your goals (for example: ordering at a restaurant, preparing to ask for directions, discovering local traditions, etc) all to bring you to the ultimate goal: "fluency".

how often do we meet for lessons? . . .

Lessons can meet when you want for however long you want. The minimum for private lessons is 1 hour. We recommend you to have 1 to 3 hours per week, but no more than 2 hours per session. Ideally, you would be able to dedicate 1.5 hours of your time, twice a week.

What languages do you offer? . . .

We offer French, Italian & Spanish private lessons.
