The Spanish Academy offers Spanish (Castellano), French, English & German and Italian lessons to adults and children of all ages, from beginners to advanced level in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Both adult and children ’s classes are offered in groups, or on an individual one-to-one basis, and are particularly suitable for those wishing to brush up on the language for holidays, business etc. In addition, we offer classes for younger children who will find the lessons interesting and fun.
Individual lessons can also be arranged and tailored for those pupils who are taking their GCSE and A Level examinations and require further assistance. Usually we work in conjunction with the pupil’s school teacher, in order to concentrate on those particular areas that are proving difficult.
The topics that the Academy covers over the duration of the course have been carefully chosen to ensure each pupil has the opportunity to interact and converse with the Tutor and the other students, if in a group class. Naturally the topics at a beginner’s level will differ from those at an intermediate or advanced level. At a beginner’s level we will introduce topics such as daily routine, social life and eating out. This will help build the pupil’s confidence when asking and answering questions for the first time in a new language.
Director of the Academy, Harriet Tuckett, lived in Spain on the Costa Blanca for sixteen years where she had the opportunity to interact with native speakers, which enabled her to speak the language with fluency. During this time Harriet taught at an International Language School in Spain and decided to return to the UK to further her knowledge of the language, where she was educated at Rugby School, Warwickshire and after A Levels, read Spanish to degree level.
After moving back to the UK, Harriet attended the University of Chester for three years to read Spanish, where she graduated and is now living and working in the UK on a permanent basis.
