Our Teachers


I'm Amy, I am a self confessed language enthusiast! I studied French and Chinese Mandarin at school and have learnt Spanish from scratch as an adult. Until 2 years ago, I lived and worked in Spain, teaching English and I have become very interested in the language learning process, both in terms of my own language learning but also that of my students.

I am a Spanish and French teacher and I run the administrative aspects of French for Fun Gloucestershire. I will also take the occasional class here and there, just because it's fun and I love teaching languages!

I am on a mission to turn Gloucestershire bilingual! I get great joy from being able to communicate with people in their native language and love how it brings people together. I have made so many friends because of my language exploits and I want to encourage others to do the same!

I look forward to meeting you soon!

A bientôt! (See you soon!)


Social Events

We will be holding some social events throughout the year, which are free for learners enrolled in one of our classes - stay tuned for more details!

Not a Language for Fun event, but I thought I would let you know! I will also be going! This sounds fantastic!

The band - Montparnasse – features award winning acoustic guitarist Cris Tolley, double bass legend Paul Smith and Robin Payne on drums and percussion.

The band have a unique sound and approach and give a brand new twist to classic tunes by Piaf, Brassens, Aznavour or Nougaro to name but a few. The Repertoire ranges from the 1930’s to the 2000’s. Céline sings in French, English, Spanish and Italian - opening up a whole World of music for her audience. Recent sell out concerts in Birmingham and Upton Jazz Festival have confirmed the band as one of the most entertaining acts around leaving audience members mesmerized and being described by promoters as ‘the best act we’ve ever had’.
