About Us

Bonjour, Buenas días, Guten Tag, Hello!

My name is Lorraine Watson-Parris and I run Enjoy Languages. Two of my biggest passions in life are teaching and languages and so running my own language classes is an absolute pleasure.

Getting here hasn’t come without hard work. I graduated from university in 2003 with a 2:1 degree in languages – during which I also had a fantastic time working as a waitress in Disneyland Paris, a kitchen aide in a French language school in the Cote d’Azur, and as an English assistant in a Luxembourg secondary school. I then went on to complete the PGCE teaching qualification in Modern Foreign Languages, and in 2009 I completed the Trinity Certificate in TESOL which gave me the skills to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).

I set-up Enjoy Languages in 2010 after six years teaching languages as a Secondary School teacher. Whilst running Enjoy Languages, I have also been involved in a number of other teaching organisations. For example, teaching summer courses at an English language school in Oxford, working as an Modern Languages tutor in adult educational centres, and leading the French department at the former Ferndale Preparatory School.

Nowadays, I spend my time teaching French at Ashfold Preparatory School, teaching English as Additional Language (EAL) at Summer Fields Preparatory School, and of course running classes and courses under Enjoy Languages.
