Language For Fun – Languages franchises UK
Why work with us?
Language for Fun was started by language teacher and mum, Jessica Bonnard, in 2007 and is one of the few language schools in the country that offer leisure courses specifically for adults.
Our first Licensees joined us in 2010 and we now have 12 language schools across the UK, teaching over 300 students every week.
Our French and Spanish lessons for adults are conversational and ‘just for fun’, so there are no stressful exams to teach for. The classes are about socialising and creating language communities as well as teaching, which increase learner retention rates.
Our courses are highly structured and easy to teach with little planning required, freeing up your valuable time and giving you a great work-life balance.
Do you have ‘A’ level French or Spanish or are you a near-native speaker?
Do you have a real passion for languages?
You don’t need teaching experience, but good communication skills are vital.
You need to have a minimum teaching commitment of 3 hours per week and initially, another 3 to develop your business.
Would you like to get involved with your local community?
Do you want to be in control of your working hours to suit your family needs?
Do you have a sense of fun?
Are you self-motivated and determined?
We offer different packages according to your specific needs and ambitions, starting from just £250.
Every package offers full support throughout the Licence.
For a single class of 8 learners paying £10 an hour, with £10 room hire, you might earn just over £1,600 for a 33-week year. If you teach 5 classes like this, you could be looking at around £8,000.

‘I started teaching for Language for Fun in January 2011. I am DELIGHTED with the groups of students I have. I met fantastic people through this job and I am very pleased with the results they are achieving. At the moment I have 4 groups in Bradley Stoke and Stoke Gifford and a tutor in Downend and am starting 2 new groups in October 2013.’
‘Classes are fun, a real joy… something to look forward to. It is a pleasure to go to work.’
‘The opportunity couldn’t have come at a better moment since my daughter had just started school that same term and I was starting to think about what to do with my “free” time. I needed a flexible job which would allow me to look after my children and at the same time allow me to take long holidays to go abroad in order to see my family. Language for Fun has it all: I plan my calendar so I can have a 2 months holiday every year and be free to spend time with my children during half term holidays at school.’
I just LOVE it!!!
