Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to Language for Fun Norwich with Barbara!
This is a truly fun language programme for adults, offering 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.
It's not only a great way to learn French and Italian, but also to build your confidence, exercise those little grey cells and meet new people.
Do get in touch if you would like to try a class - all being online using Zoom with the current Covid restrictions.
There are existing groups doing Italian Improvers courses 1-3, French Improvers courses 1-3, French Intermediate 1 and Advanced French.
I am also happy to offer one-to-one sessions or classes for couples if you feel this would suit you better - we just arrange a mutually convenient time, and lessons are tailored to suit your individual needs and interests.
Our Language Classes
Improvers 1-3:
These course gets you talking about past and future events and builds on the topics from the Beginners units to increase your confidence. You'll finish up at about GCSE standard!
Intermediate 1-3:
Choose this course when you're confident with all the basics and are ready to challenge yourself with the more complex tenses and using a mixture of them in conversation.
At advanced level, conversation is developed to cover a wide range of topics and current events and we tackle the finer points of grammar

The next 10 week term will start on January 4th
Do call me if you're interested in joining a class part way through a term - it's no problem for groups other than Beginners, as long as the class is at the right level for you (which you can find out via a free taster class or a 1:1 session with me).
I have a list of people already interested in the new Beginners classes for French and Italian, so please get in touch asap if you'd like more details.
Groups meet mornings, afternoons or evenings in Cringleford or online.

I was born and grew up in Norwich before graduating with a Joint Honours degree in French & German from Durham University. I then headed south to Hampshire, became a Chartered Accountant, had two children - and decided it was time to change career and qualify as a teacher! I taught at Primary level for 7 years and ran an after-school French Club for even longer. It was amazing to take responsibility for French when it became part of the curriculum and be able to inspire new learners. I love working with people and being able to share my enthusiasm for languages with others.
