Meet the team

Our team of qualified and dedicated teachers have extensive experience of language teaching to all age groups and levels. 

All have Master or Bachelor degrees as well as teaching qualifications, and have been teaching in Spain and overseas. They practice student-centred learning techniques which mean students learn more quickly in the active classroom environment. Classes are participative and dynamic, with constant interactions between the teacher and students and between student to student. 

The focus is on USE of languages and not on grammar and memorisation. Language test preparation covers the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
