Welcome to Language for Fun Newcastle-Under-Lyme's exciting French lessons with Vanessa and Bethan!

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. Our conversations have been created specifically for adults, rather than teenagers and we try to create a dinner party/coffee morning atmosphere, where we make sure that everyone feels at ease and able to join in! Below is information about all of our classes with times, prices and a bit of information about the teacher.

Vanessa is a French native speaker who comes from the North of France, near Lille. However, her family is scattered between Normandy, Brittany, Alsace and the Riviera. This has given her the chance to get to know several areas of the country. She passed her English degree with honours at Lille University, then came to England to practice her English working in a school as a French assistant. She then decided to stay to share her knowledge of French language and culture. She studied for her PGCE and taught in high school and college for 11 years before joining French For Fun as a tutor and then as a licensee. She likes going to art lessons and Tae Kwon Do. This all gives her the chance to savour different ways of teaching and adapt to different needs and levels. Vanessa loves sharing her passion for language and culture, which is why she joined French for Fun.
