Hi, I’m Wencke and I’m here to help you (re)discover and nurture your love for French in a fun, friendly, way with the relaxed but effective Language for Fun methodology.
I’m originally from Belgium, I have a degree in Communications and lived and worked in France (Lyon) for 8 years before moving to the UK in 2014. I have a French son, so we speak French and Dutch at home and with family and friends every day.
I love learning and speaking new languages, and all the doors it opens for travel, discovering different cultures, having meaningful conversations, even making new friends. And it’s also not as scary as you might think – put away any miserable memories of school days!
As someone who had to learn French, English and other languages from scratch, just like you, I know exactly how daunting it can be (don’t we all just love our comfort zone!) and just like you, I had to find ways to remember vocabulary and grammar (and the exceptions!) and I look forward to sharing all this with you.
At Language for Fun we put the focus on conversation and progress, and you will soon discover that your confidence to speak grows with each lesson. We will give you the tools and self-belief so you will feel at ease talking to native French speakers, whether it is to get around during your holidays in France, when buying or visiting a holiday home, having to speak French for work or to chat to French friends or relatives. Whatever your level or goals, we can help you live your best French life. It’s never too late to start!
