Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to Language for Fun, Burton Upon Trent's relaxed Spanish and French lessons for adults.

We offer fun, stress-free lessons with no exams and no compulsory homework in relaxed but highly structured and effective classes, where a large part of the lesson is spent talking to other learners. Our conversations have been created specifically for adults and we try to create a welcoming atmosphere, where we make sure that everyone feels at ease and is able to join in! Group numbers are kept small to allow everyone to play an active part in classes.

Please "get in touch" for more details. We would love to hear from you.

Our Teachers

A graduate in Spanish from Staffordshire University Laura has spent time living and studying in Spain. She is well travelled and passionate about languages and culture and is looking forward to sharing her love of Spain with you. Laura completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at Kingston University and taught in a school in London for 5 years before having her 3 daughters. Laura has enjoyed swapping the primary classroom for adult education and thrives on creating an environment where small groups of learners can speak Spanish in a friendly and relaxed setting.

Louise’s love for languages began with imitating different accents and reading her Mum’s Spanish night class books - putting it all into practice on family holidays to Spain! Louise went on to study BA (Hons) Modern Languages (French and Spanish) at Wolverhampton University when she was lucky enough to live in Lyon and Barcelona and even worked as an Olympic Translator. After a career in the logistics industry she completed a PGCE in Education at Warwick University, then spent a few years teaching French and Spanish in Secondary Education. During a break from teaching, Louise would always grab any opportunity to use her languages when working in marketing and pharmaceuticals. Louise is trying to improve her basic Italian as she regularly visits Italy to see family - a challenge that helps her empathise with learners who are beginning a new language! Louise is currently covering Spanish lessons for Laura, who is on maternity leave, whilst launching her own French and Spanish lessons, so that she can share her passion for languages whilst being a busy mum of two young children.
