Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to Language for Fun, Glossop, for lovely, lively French lessons for adults with Liz.

We offer fun, stress-free lessons in relaxed but highly structured and effective classes.
Our classes are:
- focused on communication
- in small groups so everyone feels at ease to join in
- proven to be highly effective for language learning
- created specifically for adult learners
- part of a structured programme that could take you through to advanced level

We don't:

- put anyone on the spot

If you have always wanted to learn French but never taken the plunge, or you want to improve on what you already know, here's your chance to learn in a small, supportive group of local people who just love all things French.

Our Language Classes

French Beginners

This class is suitable for those who have never learnt French before. We'll be starting with 1,2,3, a,b,c, but the methodology we follow means that you'll be speaking before you know it!

Thursday, 7pm - 8.30pm (Starting 2nd March 2017)

French Improvers

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! We'll be mastering the past and future tenses.

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. Six 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.
