Conversation!

I was really pleased having Raquel as my teacher, I was with her for about a year. We did mainly oral classes and she corrected me at almost every mistake I made which was really useful and necessary. She also taught me many aspects of the grammar that I could include in my Spanish conversations. Furthermore, I learnt a lot of slang and expressions which was really useful for when I moved to Spain. I would recommend her to anyone! I can now talk about many topics and I no longer feel stuck or nervous about talking Spanish. I found the classes very amusing, completely personalized and full of interesting and relevant topics. It is important to me that we talk a lot about everyday things and situations. I could see my progress every week and my Spanish friends notice it too. Thank you Raquel

“¡Hola! Me llamo Adam y he sido alumno de Raquel y solo tengo palabras buenas sobre sus clases. En otras clases aprendía español haciendo más gramática y ejercicios, pero a mí me daba miedo hablar en una conversación y hacer errores. Con Raquel, mi nivel de español ha mejorado mucho gracias a sus clases enfocadas a la conversación y dinámicas. Raquel me hizo sentirme mucho más cómodo hablando en español y gané mucha confianza y seguridad. También entendí mucho mejor la gramática, ya que la practicábamos en contexto. Me gustaría mencionar especialmente que es una profesora que se preocupa realmente por el alumno. Siempre me preguntaba como me sentía con el contenido de las clases y lo adaptaba a mis necesidades específicas. Ella crea el mejor ambiente para aprender y esto es lo que la hace especial y tan única. Así que si quieres mejorar tu español no busques más, te puedo asegurar que con Raquel lograrás tus objetivos y perderás el miedo a hablar.”

“Hello! My name is Adam and I have been Raquel’s student and I have only good words to say about her classes. In other classes I learned Spanish by doing more grammar and exercises, but I was afraid of speaking in a conversation and making mistakes. With Raquel, my level of Spanish has improved a lot thanks to her conversation-focused and dynamic classes. Raquel made me feel much more comfortable speaking Spanish and I gained a lot of confidence and self-assurance. I also understood the grammar much better, as we practised it in context. I would especially like to mention that she is a teacher who really cares about the student. She always asked me how I felt about the content of the lessons and adapted it to my specific needs. She creates the best environment for learning and this is what makes her special and so unique. So if you want to improve your Spanish look no further, I can assure you that with Raquel you will achieve your goals and lose the fear of speaking.”

Raquel taught me Spanish at International House, Newcastle in 2019. I had just moved back from Sevilla and wanted to keep on top of my Spanish – she was amazing with helping me to do so! She provided lots of interesting activities and learning exercises for individual and group scenarios. I learnt a lot, not only about the language, but also about Spanish & Latino cultures as well which was really interesting. There was never a dull moment, she is an amazing teacher who I highly recommend. ¡Gracias por enseñarme!

Raquel is a wonderful, fun and energetic teacher who I had the pleasure of being taught Spanish by for 1 year. Each lesson was well thought through, entertaining and importantly provided all you’d need to learn a language. Grammar, lots of spoken practice and even a bit of colloquial Spanish for good measure 😊 Hoy en día trabajo en México produciendo vinos en Jalisco, sin las clases con Raquel no podría sobrevivir aquí 😄 también ahora tengo muchos más amigos que son hispanohablantes entonces ambos mi vida professional y personal han sido mejorados 🥰
