Hola a todos!
We have been very busy! Busy is good!
We haven’t really have a holiday at Speak Spanish; some of you know that we had to take some days off this term and that is why some courses finish later than others. It is also the first time we have 10 week courses and we are pleased with the results! We could not do the Conversation classes this term and Workshops but they will be back! Gracias for all your support and being patient with all these changes.
Loreto Araya has joined our teaching team and we are so happy! She is a Chilean qualified teacher who has been working quite hard to catch up with Speak Spanish observing and working in the background with Eva and Laura.Gracias Loreto and we wish you all the best!!! Her profile is not yet on the website, we will be uploading that.
Eva is on holiday! Lucky her!! She will be back in September. She is working online so if you wish to still have private classes with her, she is still available, believe or not! She is amazing like that! She is supporting Laura improving our programs and planning for the Preparation for DELE courses in October. Gracias Eva!

Your enrolment details are all in your invoices. Please read Term & Conditions as we don’t offer make up classes or refunds; we ask students to pay in full before the term starts.
Some of our gossip is on Facebook and also our recommended material for you to study on your own. It is worth to LIKE it! (we think at least!)
