Quote Icon Spanish for Fun in Greenwich

Our Spanish classes are dynamic and lively. We learn in small groups over a drink in a local cafe or pub. Not only are you learning a language, you're also making friends with other likeminded people.

I never make anyone speak Spanish in front of the class if they don't want to, and yet in a typical lesson you get plenty of opportunities to speak to each other and practise what we're learning.

There's no pressure, no compulsory homework, no tests, no exams or unnecessary stress. If you're going to learn a new language, this is the way to do it! ¡Unete con nosotros! - Join us!

Hi! I qualified as a language teacher back in 2000 and I've been teaching Spanish, French and English ever since! I lived and worked in Spain for several years and learned to love the Spanish language and culture, liking nothing better than helping my fellow native English speakers to appreciate it too.

I've taught my language - and the languages I have learned - to the highly educated and the barely literate, to people in their eighties and toddlers still in nappies,to accomplished linguists and the truIy terrified, and I love adapting what I do to the needs and pace of my learners and watching everyone make progress (at their own speed) towards their personal goals, whether that be mastery or an easy-going hobby.

I firmly believe in lifelong language learning and in my free time I'm trying to improve my (basic) Mandarin Chinese and Italian. I may be fluent and qualified to teach French, Spanish and English, but I am still a beginner learner of Chinese and Italian, so I know how daunting learning a language can be and how important it is that the atmosphere and materials in a class are non-threatening, easily accessible, and thoughtfully designed, and what a difference it makes to have an approachable, understanding teacher.

I am confident that you'll love the experience of learning with Language for Fun.

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Barcelona, Spain, where I earned a degree in Humanities, specialising in history and literature. After graduating, I moved to Holland where I lived for a year before settling in the UK.
Languages have always been my passion. I remember learning English as a young teenager so I could understand and translate the songs of my favourite bands and, later on, diving into new languages so I could speak to those I met in my travels. Eventually, my love for languages led me to become a professional translator in 2007 and I have been translating for international organisations ever since. Last year, after many years of pondering, I decided to pursue an itching desire that had been in my heart for very long – teaching! And that is why I became a qualified Spanish teacher.
As a Spaniard living in London, I have had many opportunities to share my love for my native languages, Spanish and Catalan, to friends and anyone who might be interested. From my experience of traveling to new countries for the first time and wanting to speak to the locals, I understand the uneasiness that might come when trying to communicate in a language you don’t speak at all or well enough. You might even have some knowledge in your head, but when it’s the time to use it, nothing comes out! That is why I particulary like Language for Fun’s approach, which focuses on the communication aspect of learning a language, instead of trying to memorise never-ending vocabulary lists.
Learning new languages opens your mind as it is not just about learning words or grammar rules, but also about discovering new cultures and perspectives. It opens doors to experiences and connections you would otherwise not have and can even improve your memory and concentration!
Would you like to speak with the locals next time you go on holiday to Spain? Or have a conversation in Spanish next time you meet someone from South America? Come and join one of our friendly groups! I hope to meet you soon. ¡Hasta pronto!
