La Causerie Franšaise is Kansas City's foreign language school.

We provide professional instruction in French, Italian and Spanish to adults.


French, Italian and Spanish classes are offered on Friday mornings from September through mid-May each year. We contract with professional instructors, many of whom are native speakers. Students can select a level appropriate to their experience: beginning, intermediate, advanced and conversation classes.

Invited guests often make cultural presentations in one of the three languages at noon most Fridays.


The 2017-2018 school year begins September 8th and runs Friday mornings through May 18th, 2018. Prospective students can determine their level of language proficency by viewing the Self-Assessment Tests on the Classes page.


All classes are held at Second Presbyterian Church, 55th and Brookside Boulevard, Kansas City MO. See the Contact tab above for mailing address, phone number and details. Parking is sometimes tight, but please do not park in the Crestwood Shops spaces, they need those for customers. A map of the parking options can be viewed here.
