Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to Language for Fun, for lovely, lively French lessons for adults in Ashby de la Zouch and the surrounding area. We offer fun stress-free lessons with no exams and no compulsory homework. Classes are offered from beginners to advanced levels. Lessons are highly structured and effective with an emphasis being placed on learning useful conversation skills. Groups are typically between 4 and 10 people leading to a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and the low numbers mean that everyone feels able to take part.

Classes started at the end of September but I am now starting to plan for classes available from January, please see below for information about classes. Taster classes will be held for the new term at the end of November so watch this space! If you are unsure of the level you should start at, I am able to help. Terms are 10 weeks long and lessons last between one and one and a half hours depending on the size of the class and how chatty you are! If you don't see a class on a day, level and time to suit you, please get in touch anyway as more classes can be provided. You might even want to find a group of friends to start together.

Please get in touch for more information or for details of a free taster session. I look forward to meeting you!

Our Teachers

Hi! I'm Jane! I've always loved languages, especially French. My passion started from age 13 when visiting the French Alps on a French exchange and I am still in touch with my penfriend many years later! After studying French up to A-Level standard, I was lucky enough to be able to use my skills whilst living in France for three years. I took every opportunity to use my language and experience French life. As well as the beautiful language, I like to share my love of the French culture.

I have been teaching French for a number of years and regularly speak French, both with French friends and other people who love the language. I am thrilled to be able to share my love of teaching and the French language using the relaxed, friendly and effective methodology of Language for Fun.

Send me an email or call me for more information, I'd love to help you whether you're learning from scratch, or equally wanting to advance your knowledge!
