Welcome to Language For Fun - lovely, lively Spanish lessons are available in Glasgow!
Language for Fun classes are relaxed and laid back with no exams or compulsory homework. The classes are conversation based and you will learn how to communicate effectively with one another in Spanish, while getting to know each other better. There is no pressure to talk in front of the whole class, as you will all be talking at the same time in small groups.
Although the atmosphere is relaxed, the class is highly structured. This helps you to make progress while at the same time feeling comfortable and knowing how classes will work each week. Through carefully prepared conversations, you will get to know each other better, while talking in Spanish!
Spanish is one of the most widely spoken and useful languages you can learn - and it’s fun too! Why not get in touch and come along to a class and start your language learning journey today!!
Rachel grew up in Glasgow and gained an honours degree in Economics at Glasgow Univeristy, before going to Seville to gain her certificate in 'Teaching English as a Foreign Language' (TEFL) Soon after that, she moved to Bolivia, where she lived for 9 years, speaking Spanish every day, while working with children and families in a Christian Community Project that supported local families though education, health, sports and community work.
On her return to the UK in 2011, she spent 7 years working with Glasgow Women's Aid, supporting children and young people who had experienced domestic abuse, and volunteering at the Glasgow City Mission. In 2017, she started teaching Spanish to children (age 0-11) with La Jolie Ronde and is currently teaching around 200 children a week in after school and weekend clubs. She has a 4 year old boy, who is bilingual, so her days are spent speaking Spanish at home as well as in class!
She won La Jolie Ronde's 'Licensee of the Year' (in Scotland and the North of England) in 2019, Franchisee of the Year at the national Club Hub Awards in 2021, and this year she was finalist again at the Club Hub Awards 2022, and she won a silver award in the Best Businesswomen Awards, in the category 'Best Businesswomen Working with Children and Families'. She also won the What's on 4 Kids award for 'Most loved activity provider in Scotland and N. Ireland', was a finalist for 'Remarkable Acheivement' award, for the fundraising she is involved in with her children's classes.
Rachel loves Spanish and is passionate about promoting language learning to all ages! As she learnt the language from scratch in Bolivia when she first moved there, she understands what it’s like to learn Spanish as a beginner. She started teaching adults over 4 years ago with 'Language for Fun' and she is excited to have the opportunity to add to her growing children's classes and teach Spanish to adults also - it's never too late to learn a new language!
