The group is really fun and friendly and I’ve enjoyed learning through songs. I’ve really loved learning Spanish. The teacher has done a fantastic job of presenting the content in an easy-paced and fun way. I’m learning a lot and I would recommend the course to others, especially if you’re new to learning a language. – Kat Smith

Really enjoyed the board game at the end of the course and playing Bingo. Songs were really helpful for remembering vocabulary. The teacher makes learning Spanish so much fun! I surprise myself every week, how fast I pick up the language. Spanish is fantastico! – Emma

Really enjoy the Spanish classes. The teachers are so enthusiastic and passionate about languages, which really energises and motivates us to learn and bounce off each other. Class is always fun, interactive and challenges us to learn. – Jess Wilson

“I enjoyed learning Spanish at SLS because it was relevant to my level and enabled me to have basic conversations from the start. It is a very relaxed and fun way to learn Spanish. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to quickly learn some Spanish, particularly for travel but also continue for more in depth Spanish in the long term.” – Louise Mallett
