About us

Although we are a recently established small school, all our Lecturers are University Graduates and native Spanish Speakers who are experienced in the art of teaching Spanish to foreigners. Our aim is to explain theoretical concepts clearly and then put them into practical use in everyday situations. Equally important is our desire to provide a comfortable, relaxed and stimulating atmosphere both in class and out.

Because we are small and intend to stay this way, we can offer quality rather than quantity and adapt to your individual needs. This way we will provide you with the best learning experience possible for your individual style of learning. We will ensure that you have the same teacher throughout the course so that you become familiar and relaxed in your class.
