Quote Icon This course is ideal for:

… those who have no or next to no prior knowledge of French and who want to be able to greet people and introduce themselves in a basic manner as well as order simple food and drink items from a shop, snack stall, café  or bar. Participants will learn the alphabet and accents, numbers 1-100, times and parts of the day, days of the week and months of the year.  Grammar will be very minimal.

All pretty useful stuff; why not give it a go? You’ll notice next time you go to France that people treat you better if you make even the tiniest effort to ‘speaka da lingo’!

Since my first of many twinning exchange trips to the Loire Valley in France and to the Ruhr Valley in Germany in my teens, I have always loved foreign languages, cultures and people (and of course the food and drink too). As part of my university studies, I spent eight months in Lorraine on the border with Belgium and Luxembourg, four months in Nordrhein-Westfalen on the border with the Netherlands and four months in the city of Lyon. Having only started learning Spanish as an adult, I have not spent extensive amounts of time in Spain but I have holidayed there as well as in Peru. Before becoming a licencee with Language for Fun, I taught for twelve years in secondary schools, including one in Zambia near the border with French-speaking Congo. I have had many adventures in many Francophone, Germanophone and Hispanophone countries where my language 'skills' have both saved the day AND got me into a bit of hot water! Let me use MY cringeworthy past experiences of making hilarious mistakes save YOU from doing the same.
When I am not teaching or learning languages (I speak Dutch now too), I enjoy swimming, reading and walking but I am particularly passionate about the performing arts; I think you will be able to tell this when you meet me! I look forward to meeting YOU!
