Our friendly, professional, qualified and experienced teachers aim to make learning Spanish fun. Courses have aims and objectives in place to maximise your learning. Classes are informal and designed to be focused on encouraging you to speak and communicate in Spanish, but all four skills will be practised (reading, listening, speaking and writing). Grammar and vocabulary is taught as a natural part of language progression. Learning takes place by a variety of media including; listening to audio excerpts, watching short video clips, reading stories and articles. You will learn grammar through practice exercises, both written and spoken. You are encouraged to practise by speaking in small groups.
Hola a todos. My name is Soraya and I have been teaching Spanish in England for over fifteen years at all levels. I’m passionate not just about the language but about the culture.
My passion in life is to travel and experience the language and culture of as many countries as possible. Originally from the US, I studied languages at university and then enjoyed a career in business, living and working in Europe and the Far East before achieving a teaching qualification. I taught Spanish in primary and secondary schools for 12 years before moving to adult education.
I love teaching languages and helping my students to grow in confidence in speaking and listening so that they can get the most out of travel or work abroad. I like to use ideas from teaching young people to bring a sense of fun and humour to my lessons. Learning languages should be an enjoyable and relaxed experience.
I use authentic resources from Spanish-speaking countries (music, videos, texts) to help immerse you in the language, and we will cover many cultural topics to entice you to visit the country.
