Now that the holidays are well under way you may be thinking about going to a warm and sunny place during the summer period. Spain is an excellent location for the summer months due to its warm climate, glorious beaches, exquisite food and marvellous culture. Spain can be quite inexpensive and there are numerous activities that can be carried out, such as beach sports, museum visits, luxury dining, wine tasting and more. In Spain there is an activity for everyone, no matter what you’re interested in. Contrary to what many people think, English is not widely spoken in Spain and tourists often have trouble when trying to carry out basic daily activities on holiday, such as ordering food and booking a hotel room. Is there anything worse than seeing people shouting in English when they can’t get their point across in a foreign language? I don’t think so!
Luckily, at The Spanish Academy we provide holiday Spanish classes, which are tailored to your specific needs, whether you plan to be on a wine tasting holiday, an activity-packed holiday or a cocktails on the beach getaway – you name it! We also tailor our classes to age groups, such as children, teens and adults and take into consideration any deadlines and specific objectives when planning the lessons.
You’ll notice in no time how you are able to order food and drinks, explain to a taxista where you plan to go, book a room in person or on the phone, as well as read and understand hotel or tourist information websites. What’s more, you’ll be able to converse with the locals, understand authentic Spanish culture and make the very most of your trip.
Going with a friend or family? No problem. While we specialise in one-on-one tuition, we are also accustomed to providing two-on-one and group classes, and all of our tutors have experience with a range of different levels, abilities and ages. More importantly, don’t be put off if you tried learning a language at school before and found it difficult – tailored language tuition is very different to classroom teaching and many students experience great success, even if they originally found it challenging!
So don’t doubt your ability to learn a second language and have a fantastic holiday showing off your new skill! Give us a call here at The Spanish Academy and we’ll do all the rest – ¡hasta pronto!
