Speak Spanish™ – Spanish Language Institute was created in 2009 as a response to the lack of a dedicated Spanish language institute in the city which is capable of providing Spanish language tuition across all age groups and levels.


We specialise in only one thing and we do it well – teaching Spanish. All abilities are represented in our classes; grammar, vocabulary, listening, writing with the main focus being communication and speaking.

Communicative Approach

We use the communicative approach so activities in class are aimed to produce meaningful and real communication, at all levels. There is more emphasis on skills than systems and our lessons are learner-centred.

22 Countries
Spanish is the official language

Qualified Teachers

Teaching like any other profession takes years of study. Speak Spanish differs from other institutes in that we use qualified teachers.


Teaching Philosophy

Our approach to learning Spanish is based on the immersion philosophy, which involves learning to converse and communicate in a natural setting. You will practice and use Spanish as you would in real life.


We get it

We take Spanish language learning seriously and we believe we provide the most professional tuition at all levels. We know how to teach and don’t forget English is our second language, so we know what its like from a learners perspective.
