Our Teachers

Bonjour !
I'm a native French teacher, living in the UK since January 2015. Originally from the south of France near to Carcassonne, I have been working in the French army and in other French institutions in Paris and Lyon. I also gave French lessons with the French Red Cross to refugees.
I'm very keen to teach you French - as a language and as a culture ! Come along and join us !

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 18months 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
