Vanessa Muller



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. Our conversations have been created specifically for adults, rather than teenagers and we try to create a dinner party/coffee morning atmosphere, where we make sure that everyone feels at ease and able to join in! Below is information about all of our classes with times, prices and a bit of information about the teachers.

Richard Robards
A graduate in French from
Leeds University, Richard also has Advanced Level qualifications in Spanish, Italian and German. Having spent all of his career until recently working in Export Sales for British manufacturers of a variety of products ranging from ceramic tiles to mens’ shirts and from woodworking machinery to bathroom sanitaryware, Richard has been fortunate to travel the world extensively and to use his languages in International Trade environments. Turning to teaching later in life than usual, he recently completed a Diploma in Education. He has worked for Language for Fun as a tutor since the beginning of 2011 and has recently taken over the licence for Spanish in Newcastle-under-Lyme and Spanish & French for Biddulph, Congleton, Leek and Alsager all of which he is looking to expand over the next few years.


Vanessa Muller

Vanessa is a French native speaker who comes from the North of France, near Lille. However, her family is scattered between Normandy, Brittany, Alsace and the Riviera. This has given her the chance to get to know several areas of the country. She passed her English degree with honours at Lille University, then came to England to practice her English working in a school as a French assistant. She then decided to stay to share her knowledge of French language and culture. She studied for her PGCE and taught in high school and college for 11 years before joining French For Fun as a tutor and then as a licensee. She likes going to art lessons and Tae Kwon Do. This all gives her the chance to savour different ways of teaching and adapt to different needs and levels. Vanessa loves sharing her passion for language and culture, which is why she joined French for Fun.
