Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to Language for Fun Norwich with Barbara!
This is a truly fun language programme for adults, offering 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.
It's not only a great way to learn French and Italian, but also to build your confidence, exercise those little grey cells and meet new people.
Do get in touch if you would like to try a class!
There are existing groups doing term 3 of French Beginners, Term 3 of French Improvers, Term 1 of Italian Beginners and Term 3 of Italian Beginners. A Beginners group for French will be starting in January!
I am also happy to offer one-to-one sessions or classes for couples if you feel this would suit you better - we just arrange a mutually convenient time, and lessons are tailored to suit your individual needs and interests.

Our Language Classes

French Beginner

French Beginners (3) Mondays, 6 - 7:30 in Cringleford.

This level is for those who are starting from scratch - or think they've forgotten too much. This course covers the equivalent of pre GCSE.

French Improver

French Improvers (2) Thursdays 2:30 - 4pm Cringleford.

This course gets you talking about past and future events and builds from a refresher term to build up confidence. You'll finish up at about GCSE standard!

French Intermediate/Advanced

French Intermediate (1), Thursdays, 6:30 - 8pm, Cringleford.

Choose this course when you're confident with all the basics and are ready to challenge yourself with more complex conversation topics and sentences

Italian Beginner

Italian Beginners (1) Tuesdays 7 - 8:30pm Cringleford
Italian Beginners (3) Wednesdays 7 - 8:30pm Cringleford

For those who are starting from scratch - or think they've forgotten too much. This course covers the equivalent of pre GCSE.

Term Dates

The latest 10 week terms started in September, but do call me if you're interested in joining a class part way through - it's no problem for groups other than Beginners as long as the class is at the right level for you (which you can find out via a free taster class or a 1:1 session with me).
I have places available for the next group of French Beginners, which will start in January 2018.

Groups meet afternoons or evenings at quiet venues, the location varying with the number of members - it may be The CNS School on Eaton Road, The Cellar House, Eaton (upstairs in the Board Room) , or around my dining table!

I was born and grew up in Norwich before graduating with a Joint Honours degree in French & German from Durham University. I then headed south to Hampshire, became a Chartered Accountant, had two children - and decided it was time to change career and qualify as a teacher! I taught at Primary level for 7 years and ran an after-school French Club for even longer. It was amazing to take responsibility for French when it became part of the curriculum and be able to inspire new learners. I love working with people and being able to share my enthusiasm for languages with others.
