A very warm welcome to French For Fun in Cheltenham and Gloucester!

In view of the ongoing situation regarding social distancing and the risk from COVID-19, face to face classes will not resume until it is safe to do so.
At the time of writing in July 2020, the hope is that face to face classes at the venues stated may be possible by the end of September. The necessary distancing will be observed and every effort made to keep us all safe. However, if by this time the situation is still uncertain, the sessions will commence via Zoom until such time as things become clearer. It may be that the group could meet initially for a socially distanced drink out of doors before the commencement of the sessions and I will be happy to respond to any enquiries with a Zoom meeting if required.

I continue to welcome enquiries at any time.

If you like the idea of learning or improving your French in a small sociable group with like-minded learners and a friendly teacher who won’t ever put you on the spot, then you should consider joining our classes.

We offer fun, stress-free lessons with no exams and no compulsory homework in relaxed but highly structured and supportive classes. Participants follow a high quality scheme, written specifically with the adult learner in mind, so they can feel informed, supported and at ease knowing roughly what to expect each week.

We work in small groups (typically 4-8 learners) within which everyone can feel welcome and increasingly confident about speaking and learning French - whatever their previous experience.

Emphasis is always on effective communication above all and an experienced teacher and regular feedback from learners allow the sessions to be tailored to the needs of each particular group.

Do take a look at the courses we offer and although ten week terms generally start in October, Mid- January and May, don’t hesitate to contact me at any time as there’s often no problem with new learners joining a class where there are spaces available.

A variety of levels are available, from absolute beginner through improvers up to intermediate, each using the relaxed, friendly and effective methodology of Language for Fun.

I'm Barbara and I have been teaching Modern Foreign Languages in a variety of settings throughout Gloucestershire since the late 1980s. I love language and I love to teach, so when I first became aware of Language for Fun I was immediately drawn to the concept. I love the very structured approach and the way that learners are made to feel comfortable and become confident in our relaxed and sociable sessions.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

A bientôt! (See you soon!)
