Welcome to Language For Fun!

Lovely, lively language lessons will be coming to Barton Marina in September 2018. To get in touch with our teachers and for more details, click the blue button.

Our language classes are different because:

 There is no exam
 We run classes from 4 students upwards and class size is limited to 12
 We provide opportunities to socialise and practise your Italian or Spanish outside of the class
 We tend to build up a much wider offer of starting points over the years rather than just Beginners / Improvers / Intermediate.

Beginner 1 – ‘Real Beginner ‘suitable for learners with no previous knowledge of the language. By the end of this course you will be able to say things about yourself and family or friends.

Beginner 2 – ‘Beginner Plus’ Suitable for learners with very basic knowledge of the language. By the end of this course you will be able to get by in a town in Italy or Spain.

Beginner 3 - ‘Brilliant Beginner’ Suitable for learners who have enough knowledge to get by in Italy or Spain and by the end of the course will be able to talk confidently about their holiday.

With regards to higher levels please get in touch with our teacher to find out more about our Improver 1,2 and 3, Intermediate 1,2, and 3 or Advanced level (currently only available for Spanish).

Come and learn in a relaxed environment - no homework (it is up to you), no test and no stress - and make friends meeting like-minded people!

Our Teachers

Hi there! My name is Christianne and I have loved languages since the age of 10. I was lucky enough to be able to study both French and Spanish at University during which time I lived in both countries. I became a licensee with Language for Fun over 18 months ago and I am thrilled to be able to share my passion for languages with other people and the methodology used means that the focus for learning is fun, interactive and great for building confidence! I've met so many lovely people and we have such lively discussions.

I look forward to beginning a new language/brushing up an existing one with you soon - get in touch now and either come along to a free taster session or we could meet one-to-one over a coffee - I know some great venues! X

Ciao! I am Mariagrazia (or Maria) and I come from the beautiful prosecco region, in the North East of Italy. I have now lived in Lichfield for 19 years, which makes it my second home.
After obtaining the Cambridge University Proficiency in English I came to the UK for work experience which led me to job opportunities in Lichfield. I was so lucky to discover such a marvellous place!

I decided to stay a little bit longer; I studied Modern Languages and Social Sciences with the Open University and obtained the London Trinity TESOL. After working in EU-funded projects for 17 years I have decided to share my passion for my own language and culture with whoever has a desire to explore Italy and its enormous cultural heritage!
This should be white.
I look forward to meeting you!

Social Events

25th June - Movie night at the Red Carpet. "La Febbre" by Alessandro D'Alatri . Please go to http://www.redcarpetcinema.co.uk/ to book your seat.
