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.
