Bonjour! Are you looking for a fun, friendly French conversation course?
15 years ago, we started to create a method and materials for adults who wanted a different way to learn a language. People wanted to be able to speak the language rather than read or write it - but they were uncomfortable speaking in front of a class.
We have been teaching French in St Albans and Harpenden with our unique method for over a decade and we love helping learners become confident speakers. We'll have you chatting from day one.
Whether you are a complete beginner or have a degree in French, come and have fun with active learning with like-minded people. Share your own experiences of the country, the lovely language, the diverse culture and of course the cheese and wine!
It can be tricky deciding which level could suit you, so we're always happy to have a no-obligation chat to help you choose. Alternatively, fill in an enquiry on any course and ask for a self-assessment to be emailed to you.
Join at any time of the year - we will help you catch up with one-to-one support to make sure you hit the ground chatting.
What do we offer?
- Fun and relaxed conversation-based lessons focused on communication, not perfection! No exams, no tests or compulsory homework.
- Our classes are created especially for adult learners and follow a carefully structured programme, aimed to grow your confidence in speaking French.
- Small groups
- Free trial class or 30 minute consultation with a teacher via Zoom or telephone in the comfort of your own home.
If you don't find us in time for the start of term, don't worry if the course you fancy has already started - we will help you to catch up.

As well as managing the admin for French in St Albans I run Language for Fun nationwide so bear with me - I aim to reply to all enquiries within 48 working hours. I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone at our first classes. Jessica
I've taught French for over 30 years, including 11 years as Head of Modern Languages. I am also experienced in tutoring the language, both face to face and on-line. I like to create a warm, friendly environment in my classes at all levels. I hope you enjoy your French learning experience with Languages for Fun!
Hello, I am Maëlle, a French native from Brittany. I have been travelling around the world for a couple of years, then lived in the French Alps for a little while, working in hospitality. At the end of 2020, I moved to England for good until the next adventure ! I have always loved sharing and communicating with people about pretty much everything as long as everyone is happy and enjoying life, like me ! :)
I’m a French, Spanish and ESOL teacher with almost 30 years of experience. I hold a BA (Joint Honours) degree in French and Spanish and a PGCE. I’m passionate about helping students to learn through the interactive and communicative model of Language for Fun and look forward to teaching you, sharing my knowledge and having fun together.

Some of our learners have been with us for 15 years! Be patient with yourself - the process of learning a language is never complete but each term you should be that bit more confident to use your newfound skills and get the most out of your travels.
