Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to Language for Fun, Derby, for lovely, lively French & Spanish lessons for adults - term starts again in April. Please see below for information about classes. More classes are starting later on this year at additional venues so please get in touch if you don't see one near you just yet as they will be coming soon. If you are a group of friends wanting to learn together a dedicated class could be started.

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 dinner party/coffee morning 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.

If you'd like to find out more about our programme please get in touch and either come along to one of our free taster sessions or alternatively we could meet for a coffee and I can tell you more on a one-to-one basis.

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 a year 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 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

My name is Aurora García. I come from Spain and I am passionate about my language and I have over three years of experience teaching Spanish and English in groups for all levels. As a Spanish native who has lived in the U.K. for a while, I know how important it is to be involved with the culture of a different speaking community, to become integrated and understand the colloquial speech. For this reason, I teach my students the most relevant topics to develop their communication skills with the main goal of being understood. I have always been fascinated in teaching and learning languages and others cultures. I look forward to meeting you soon, Aurora x

Social Events

La Famille Bélier tells the story of an ordinary family, Rodolphe and Gigi are married, have two children and run their own farm for a living. Ordinary people? Well, almost....since three of them, Dad, Mum and their son Quentin, are deaf - big sister Paula can not only speak and hear she also has a beautiful singing voice which her music teacher encourages her to sit for the entrance exam of the Maîtrise de Radio France, a vocal elite choir in Paris. Her parents, who rely on her as their ears and mouth in the outside world, take the news badly. Paula, who hates the idea of betraying her parents and her brother, goes through a painful dilemma.......
