“Highly enjoyable, varied and quality lessons delivered by a friendly and knowledgeable teacher! Angie is a very supportive teacher, providing helpful feedback in classes and on homework set, and always on hand to answer questions. The classroom is a welcoming environment and nicely decorated (plus good parking and easy to get to). Good organisation and communication in terms of co-ordination by Maria before starting the course, as well as after each lesson by Angie and her sending out the Power Points and homework. My participation in the Intensive Beginner 1 course meant I had fun and learned a lot, so much so I signed up for the Beginner 2. Thank you!” Amandine Baque (August 2022)

Lessons are well-paced and involve a good blend of key language skills and the use of various media and approaches”. Kate Davis (January 2022)
“I have done several years of Spanish lessons with Maria and thoroughly enjoyed the classes as well as learnt a lot. Her teaching style is very approachable with a mix of theory, hands on, games etc and I went from no Spanish knowledge to a decent grounding in the language. Highly recommend if you’re looking to learn”. Dom Reed (January 2022)

I love the practical exercises and role plays, which have made me much more confident at work when interacting with Spanish speaking colleagues, suppliers and customers”.

“Excellent teacher, really well prepared lessons with loads of materials to help you practice … can’t wait to start the next term” Alistair Paul (March 2016)
“I took María’s Beginners course before the summer. She’s a fab teacher and the classes were all great fun. Better than that, having never spoken Spanish before I was able to speak to people on holiday in Gran Canaria who spoke no English. I’m not saying I was fluent but I could make myself understood and hold basic conversations with them. I felt so proud of myself and they were very impressed that I was making the effort.I can’t wait to start the Beginners Plus course later this month! It will give me more excuses to visit Spain” Sophie Disley (September 2015)
“Maria is a brilliant Spanish teacher and I would have no hesitation in recommending her. With Maria’s help I secured an A* in my Spanish GCSE! I approached Maria because unlike many language teachers she is a trained specialist with practical experience of teaching to a high standard at the University of Exeter. My wife and my mother-in-law are Spanish teachers so I wanted to ensure the quality of teaching met their high standards! Maria was very patient and created a relaxed and enjoyable learning environment. Lessons were fun. She explained things well, had well planned lessons and provided very useful handouts (particularly on some of the tricky grammar). I had previously learned Spanish on and off over a few years but wanted to consolidate my knowledge and progress. I had lessons with Maria for about a year and then sat my Spanish GCSE (at the age of 32!) and got an A* in all 6 exams, which highlights the quality of Maria’s teaching. Whether studying for fun or preparing for an exam you can get further quicker with a great teacher such as Maria” James Sage (August 2017)
“María’s relaxed style and engaging content have fostered great enthusiasm amongst our learners. Her practical approach gives our learners the confidence to speak with ever greater fluency. She dedicates much of her time to planning fun, well-structured and engaging content, and her lessons are a fun blend of everyday and business related content. Maria’s passion for languages is clear. Additionally, her knowledge of DELE helps our learners to prove their linguistic competence against an international standard – ¡gracias!”Jonathan Barrass (August 2017)
