Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to French for Fun Gloucestershire, Cheltenham and Gloucester's lovely, lively French lessons for adults with Lou!

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.

Not only a great way to learn French but also to build your confidence and meet new people.

If you prefer the comfort of your own home, we can also arrange private group classes for you and your friends.

Term Dates

We will be organising a few beginner classes over the summer holidays. If you are interested contact Lou for more information.

Dates for our Autumn term will be communicated at a later date.

The first week of term is our 'Welcome Week' where new learners have the chance to try out any of the classes to see which one suits them best before registering. I feel that it is important to experience first hand the language level and group dynamics of each class.
If you are interested in trying out a class, please get in touch.

Our Teachers

Lou left England in 1985 to work for two years on the French border of Switzerland as a nanny, speaking only a few words of French. She soon became completely bilingual and after 29 years living and working in a French environment she has returned to her home town and is enjoying sharing her knowledge of the French language and culture with you. She knows how difficult it can be to communicate in French when you only have a few words and snippets of grammar from early school days. Learning a foreign language was nothing to do with having fun and was more of an obligation at the time. Lou’s bubbly character will help you integrate our lovely, lively language lessons and find the confidence to express yourself freely.

"I help adults learn French in a fun and relaxed way. I remember how I dreaded French lessons at school, all the grammar, verbs, tests and exams, not mentioning the homework. As a child we learn to speak with no effort at all. No grammar, tests or exams or previous language to compare with. Within the first few years of our lives we have assimilated a whole new language without even knowing it. Our brain has a learning process which is amazing. If we can sing along to a song that we’ve heard only a few times on the radio, then we can do the same with a foreign language. It’s all about ‘letting go’ and allowing our brains to do the work while we continue to have fun!”
