Our Language Classes

French Beginners1

This class is suitable for the real beginner or the truly terrified! We start with 1,2,3, a,b,c, but the methodology we follow means that you'll be speaking before you know it! Classes are underway, but don't let that put you off. If you know a few basics, this may be the class for you.
Tuesday, 7pm - 8.30pm

French Beginners 2

If you have some elementary French, one of these classes may suit you. These are existing groups of learners, but it is still possible to join.- We're very friendly and we have a number of places available, if you have some very basic French.

Tuesday, 7pm - 8.30pm
Thursday, 7pm - 8.30pm

French Improvers1

This class is suitable for those who have some knowledge of French. Perhaps you studied French at school a long time ago and think you have forgotten it all! Don't worry, it will soon come back! The class is underway and we are having some fun mastering the present, past and future tenses. We have places available if you'd like to join us.

Our Teachers

Bonjour!

I am French graduate and have lived in France at various stages of my life - mainly in Paris, Strasbourg and Nancy. I love the language and culture of this beautiful country and visit friends there regularly. I have spent most of my life in the field of communication, starting out as a journalist and public relations specialist, before launching a career in higher education. Seven years ago I changed career path and began teaching French in local primary schools. By chance - at the request of some parents - I opened a small informal adult french class and found the experience extremely rewarding, as well as lot of fun....and the rest is history! I continue to teach children from as young as 5, but I also enjoy the variety of sharing my passion for this lovely language with groups of enthusiastic adults.
Whatever your motivation - holidays, business, moving to France, or just the pure enjoyment of learning a language, Language for Fun classes are designed to meet your needs.
