FUN LANGUAGES QUEENSTOWN AND ARROWTOWN
I am from France, I was born in Normandie. I have been in New Zealand for 17 years. In 1996 I started to teach French to adults and in 1998 began to be part of LCF Fun languages for children. After all these years I am still enjoying teaching. I met my Kiwi husband in France and have 3 adorable children.
I am passionate about sharing my love of France by offering classes at a school near you. Take a look at the classes on offer in French in Queenstown and Arrowtown by following the link below.

“Nathalie is an outstanding teacher. Her supportive, fun approach keeps my daughter engaged and interested in learning French. Nathalie adapts her teaching to our needs and builds on our learning with every lesson. The Fun Languages curriculum is also fantastic, with a play-based approach that really works.” Sarah Jones, Queenstown
Nathalie is knowledgeable of the NZ Curriculum for French and therefore is able to teach students at the right level. Her programmes allow students to build their own learning and to reach their potential while enjoying learning a language such as French. It is without a doubt that I do recommend Nathalie as a French teacher for the local primary schools in Queenstown as this will provide students with the necessary tools and competencies to excel in learning languages. Students who had the opportunity to be taught by Nathalie in their primary school years do extremely well in French at Wakatipu High School.

"We are delighted to send you positive feedback regarding French lessons. both William and Lachlan love French and very much look forward to their lessons with you. You make learning for them fun and because of this we believe they seem to learn more quickly. Learning french has been a confidence booster for both our boys who love to practice what they now know on french people ( which happened on holiday just recently). The boys get super excited when they see French words or hear French spoken or sung as they very much want to participate. from our point of view French lessons have had a positive effect on our boys". Louise & Gary Mollard, Arrowtown, NZ
"Our daughters have been learning French from Nathalie first through Montessori, at her home and with the after school Monday class. We fully support Nathalie's proposal to incorporate French into the school curriculum. We see it as an asset, and there are well known benefits to learning a language in the early years. Nathalie is a fantastic teacher and this is demonstrated with the great rapport she has with our children." Suzy/Jonny, Arrowtown, NZ
We are very lucky to have an LCF native French speaker in Queenstown, and I notice what a great accent my 7 year old twins have already! They also have a good base vocabulary that has enabled us to start reading simple familiar stories in French at home. I see the teaching they get now as a springboard for a lifelong love of all things French.
The LCF methodology has been carefully designed to help children start from scratch and make their way to proficiency at their own pace. Our learning programme is also great for children who already have some knowledge of the language and wish to maintain it and expand it.
All language lessons follow a carefully designed structure, which will ensure that the children can start using the target languages quickly and naturally. LCF Fun Languages’ communicative approach (communicational method) includes a wide range of activities to cover all learning styles.
Our lessons include:
- Lively games
- Quiet games
- Music and songs
- Drama and role play
- Many fun activity sheets
Through the sessions the children will learn in a variety of ways:
- To participate in a group
- To share and take turns
- Concentration and listening skills
As a result, they will:
- Increase their confidence
- Improve their language skills
- Be aware of their cultural heritage and those of others
These objectives are achieved whilst having fun in a stimulating and imaginative environment.
