Welcome to Language For Fun!

Welcome to Language for Fun in South Manchester!

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.
The programme has been created specifically for adult learners and the emphasis is on communication. There is no pressure and no one is expected to speak in front of the whole class.

Lively French and Spanish language lessons will be continuing in South Manchester from September. To get in touch with our lovely teacher Claire and for more details, please click the blue button”.

Our Language Classes

French Intermediates

Have you already studied French and feel familiar with the present, past and future tenses? This class will look at different grammar points incorporating them into conversation - in a small and friendly group setting.

Classes to take place on Tuesday evenings at Didsbury Parsonage Trust - 7.10 - 8.10 pm. starting on September 25th 2018.

French Refreshers

If you already have some elementary French, maybe from schooldays or holidays, and would like to revisit the basics to increase your confidence, this class may suit you. We'll consolidate the present tense and build your vocabulary in a light-hearted way to bridge the gap into improvers level.

Classes to take place on Tuesdays at Didsbury Parsonage Trust - 11.30 - 12.30 pm. starting on September 25th 2018.

French Improvers

This level moves you on from being a comfortable beginner to intermediate level, highlighting the past and future tenses with lots of opportunity to practise speaking as we go.

Classes to take place on Thursday evenings at Didsbury Parsonage Trust starting on September 27th - exact evening times TBC.

Spanish Beginners

Are you a complete beginner? Would you like to try something new? We'll start at the very beginning with the absolute basics and take it from there.

Classes to take place on Wednesday mornings at Gatley Hill House - 11.00 - 12.00 starting on September 26th 2018.

Our Teachers

My love of French started from a young age when on holiday in France and continued throughout school and university leading to a degree in modern languages.
My first couple of graduate jobs involved working in the contracts sections of two different tour operators; giving me ample opportunity to make the most of my language skills both by phone and face to face contracting with various hoteliers, apartment owners and transport businesses.
I then chose to complete a PGCE and worked as a language teacher at secondary level for over twenty years. It was during this time that I was inspired to develop my knowledge of Spanish; I'd done a basic introduction at school and had the rudiments but decided to take it further via a combination of residential courses in Spain and intensive evening courses at my local university. I can safely say I understand what it is to be an adult learner!
More recently I have tutored adult learners. I have lots of experience at all levels: from beginners through to A level.
Work and leisure opportunities have allowed me the pleasure to travel extensively throughout France and Spain, as well as living for a year in Normandy.
