Please read our monthly newsletter, it has important information for upcoming courses and free events for adults & children.
This is week number 4 in term one – we are halfway through the term. We are very pleased to see students enjoying classes, asking questions and speaking Spanish as much as possible. If you have any concerns or questions, please talk to your teacher first. If you are unable to reach her, please contact Laura (Head Teacher).
There are more free events this year for registered students (those who are doing or have done courses with us). Like our Facebook page to receive our weekly news.
Fees: Please read our FAQs and Terms & Conditions. We require students to pay in full before courses start. If you haven’t yet paid for courses or book, please pay asap. Discounts are only valid for a week, if you pay later, you must pay full fees. Gracias!
Books: You need your own book when you are in class. You can buy books from us – subject to availability, from The Book Depository or online (a cheaper version to use in your computer). Please check all options in our link here.
We have received some books yesterday. We have a waiting list for the books. Please buy the online version if you don’t have the book to work in class and don’t receive one today. We are able to help buying the online version.
Do you want to take extra classes?
Conversation classes – pop-in classes for registered students – $22.50 per class (usually $25 per 1.5hs class) – Today!!! and every Wed.
If you have not done any Speak Spanish workshops or courses before, you will have to enrol and attend one before enrolling into these classes. These are classes specially planned to practice your speaking skills in Spanish – at your level. That means, if you are attending Conversation for Beginners the class will be more guided and conversation will be restricted to the topics developed in class. If you care coming to the Conversation for Intermediate you will be expected to speak in Spanish with virtually no translations. Check Facebook for the topic of the night.
- Intermediate – every Weds on Term 1 – 6.00 to 7.30pm
- Beginners – every Weds on Term 1 – 7.35 to 9.05pm
Workshops – 3hs on the same day/night
