What other students think…

“I have been attending Adam and Laura’s Spanish classes for nearly a year and they have far exceeded my expectations. The classes are friendly, fun, engaging and well structured and I have been really pleased with my progress learning the language. A highlight of my week!”

Emily Cropton

I sincerely recommend Spanish classes run by Adam and Laura. They are informative and fun, well-structured and relaxed, rich in new material – vocabulary, grammar, new constructs – and at the same time relaxed and unpressurised. In every session we have games, jokes and a lot of laughter. The groups are small and the participants are supportive of one another. You learn easily and progress steadily. Five stars”

Magdalena Thomson

“Before joining Adam and Laura’s Beginner’s course I used Duolingo. Since starting the course I believe I have progressed by leaps and bounds. I am now looking forward to the Pre Intermediate course. Thank you for all your support and help”

Stuart Muir

I lived in Spain and in Mexico more than 10 years ago now, and I have not been able remain very fluent in conversational Spanish. I have tried several methods of listening to Spanish programs to obtain practice, none of which worked very well. I have found that Laura and Adam’s courses are very clear and focused. I have achieved great success in my understanding and my conversation really quickly”

David Huck

“Welcoming, friendly and relaxed! An excellent, very well structured course which I can highly recommend”

Kirsty McIntosh

“I started as a complete beginner and I am very pleased with my progress. If you’re thinking of learning Spanish I can recommend Marchando Spanish. Laura and Adam are lovely and excellent teachers”

Janet Houten

“I have found Laura and Adam’s Spanish courses a tremendous help with grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. I have over the years tried various Spanish books and CDs but none have been as easy to follow and helpful as these Spanish courses”
