what we call our Brilliant Beginners – learners who already have some experience of the language, but need to improve their use of the present tense before expanding their vocabulary.

This course is called ‘De vacaciones’ – ‘On holiday’ and it is full of lots of useful and relevant holiday topics to help you gain confidence talking about topics like booking a hotel room, going to the tourist office, the weather, feeling ill, beach and ski holidays, and describing things that you’ve lost!

Every lesson has time for conversation in small groups to help you grow in confidence speaking to others. We adapt and personalize the conversations on each topic too.

Classes are fun, laid back and relaxed and you’ll never be asked to speak in front of the class if you don’t want to

Rachel grew up in Glasgow and gained an honours degree in Economics at Glasgow Univeristy, before going to Seville to gain her certificate in 'Teaching English as a Foreign Language' (TEFL) Soon after that, she moved to Bolivia, where she lived for 9 years, speaking Spanish every day, while working with children and families in a Christian Community Project that supported local families though education, health, sports and community work.

On her return to the UK in 2011, she spent 7 years working with Glasgow Women's Aid, supporting children and young people who had experienced domestic abuse, and volunteering at the Glasgow City Mission. In 2017, she started teaching Spanish to children (age 0-11) with La Jolie Ronde and is currently teaching around 200 children a week in after school and weekend clubs. She has a 3 year old boy, who is bilingual, so her days are spent speaking Spanish at home as well as in class!

She won La Jolie Ronde's 'Licensee of the Year' (in Scotland and the North of England) in 2019, Franchisee of the Year at the national Club Hub Awards in 2021, and this year she was finalist again at the Club Hub Awards 2022, and she is in the final of the Best Businesswomen Awards in Septemeber 2022, in the category 'Best Businesswomen Working with Children and Families'. She is also nominated in the What's on 4 Kids awards for 'Most loved activity provider in Scotland and N. Ireland' and 'Remarkable Acheivement' award, for the fundraising she is involved in with her children's classes.

Rachel loves Spanish and is passionate about promoting language learning to all ages! As she learnt the language from scratch in Bolivia when she first moved there, she understands what it’s like to learn Spanish as a beginner. She started teaching adults over 4 years ago with 'Language for Fun' and she is excited to have the opportunity to add to her growing children's classes and teach Spanish to adults also - it's never too late to learn a new language!
