Freestyle Manifesto


Created by Team FLC
People are made to communicate and connect. Freestyle’s mission is to connect people though language and to build a language-learning community where everyone is welcome. Freestyle is a community of inclusion and diversity. Within our walls or at events, we provide a ‘safe zone’ where you can connect and enjoy the learning process. We strive to create a vibrant community through face-to-face interaction where we share perspectives and inspire one another.
We embrace a team approach. From our home-grown, team-made innovative curriculum and through our supportive methodology, our team is here to encourage you on the road to proficiency and to celebrate your success!
Language learning requires courage, dedication and an open mind. We believe in the power of learning from others. We love kudos, high-fives and a fun, dynamic atmosphere. Join us in our purpose-driven mission!
Through our passion for language and culture, we hope to enhance your experience with the world around you. We have the potential to unite way beyond the ATX community: let’s connect and use language as a means to broaden our reach and our cross-cultural understanding.
