      Bonjour, I am Delphine and I am the Club manager for LCF Fun Languages in the Sydney area. French native with a degree in Visual Art, I have been teaching French for more than 8 years to children and adults in Sydney. What keeps me driven about LCF Fun Languages Australia is the bond that I create with my students and their families.

      Sharing my passion for my French culture and language, and seeing my students blossom into life long language enthusiasts, is extremely rewarding. Contact me today to help you get a tailored French language program started at your child’s school!

      A bientôt!

      I completed a bachelor degree in translation studies and a teaching diploma in Mexico City. Then, after gaining some experience working as a teacher in France and a translator/interpreter in Mexico, I moved to Melbourne in 2007 to further my education and completed a Masters degree in Communications.

      I was born and raised in Mexico City and blessed with plenty of holidays in the far south of Mexico where my grandparents lived. This meant lots of time spent with animals rarely seen in the city including roosters, turkeys, pigs, parrots and of course the more traditional cats and dogs. In my family only Spanish was spoken however my mum always told lots of stories of travels and authors from other countries. It soon became my dream to be able to read those stories in their original language!

      Now that I’m a mother to a beautiful little girl my passion for teaching languages is even stronger, as I see how enriching being multilingual can be and how experiencing different cultures and learning their language opens the mind and brings opportunities for both children and their parents.

      My background is in English teaching, a passion of mine that has taken me around the world. I have had the chance to live and teach in England, The Netherlands, China, Ireland and NZ. Language to me is crucially important, it is intrinsic to who we are and how we understand our world. I haven’t had the opportunity to learn another language even though I’ve lived in countries where I was, in terms of language, an outsider. Most embarrassingly, those I met and taught all had at least one other language!

      I have often felt the pull to learn another language, and find my frustration is not something I want to share with my children, who are half French… and I feel I’m not alone in this!

      LCF Fun Languages is the ideal solution, it’s fun, motivating and a fantastic opportunity. I hope to meet many like-minded parents on this journey, and build small language communities together!

      Bonjour, my name is Laurence. I was born in Brittany, grew up in Aix-en-Provence, and then moved to Lyon, the capital of French gastronomy, where I raised my 3 beautiful children. My family loves to travel so naturally when my husband was offered a job overseas we said YES! After spending 4 years in the Middle East where I worked in a large French school with students from 3 to 18 years old, we moved to Australia and we love it here. I started to teach conversational French to adults in Brisbane but I had to quit as we moved to Newcastle, NSW, a very welcoming place and with beautiful beaches!  Now we’re moving back to Brisbane and are ready to settle here. My daughter started UQ and we love all the beautiful attractions of South Queensland.

      I’m very much looking forward to sharing my passion for the French language and culture with Fun Languages FUN but effective language programs, using activities and games adapted to different ages. ALL children are ready to learn another language and the earlier it is introduced, the easier children will integrate the sounds, pronunciation and vocabulary. Let them surprise you!

      ¡Hola a todos! My name is Sherrin and I love languages!

      I was born in Australia, but was raised in Colombia, South America where I was not only immersed in the language but also the culture. Upon returning to Australia at the age of 17, I completed a Bachelor of Arts and Education. Since graduating I have taught ESL and Spanish to both adults and children. I am the mother of two young children and my husband and I are committed to creating a bilingual environment for them to grow up in.

      LCF Fun Languages is an effective program for children to learn another language as it is engaging and fun, teaching language through songs, activities and games to all ages. Currently offering Spanish, I hope to offer other languages in the future.
