As you may know, usually I like to talk about all the many wonderful reasons there are to learn Spanish. However, as a Spanish tutor in Surrey with more than 20 years’ experience, I am also familiar with the reasons people have for NOT learning Spanish as well! Here are some of the ones that I hear most often.

I used to be a Zumba instructor and when I was doing the routines I would speak to my class in Spanish - it was so much fun! Uno, dos, tres, derecha, izquierda, muy bien... They would learn Spanish with me while losing calories. Studies have shown that movement helps you to learn a new skill, even when the skill you are learning is not a physical one. Among other things, it increases the blood flow to your brain and it helps you to view the same piece of information from different perspectives.

The famous Peruvian dish of Ceviche.
The famous Peruvian dish of Ceviche.

If you are bored with cooking the same thing for dinner every week, here is a little inspiration from my home country of Peru. You have probably heard of Ceviche, the famous dish of marinated raw fish, but I promise you there is much more to Peruvian food than this. Learning how to cook Peruvian food can provide a fantastic new skill if you are retired and looking for a hobby, or for a way of meeting new people. For young people, it’s a great way of learning how to cook and how to speak Spanish. For every age it is a great way to practice your Spanish in an authentic Latin American atmosphere. Whether you like to cook or prefer just to eat, I am very proud of my native cuisine and want to share with you three of my favourite Peruvian restaurants…

If you’ve been reading the news lately, you may have seen lots of articles that recommend learning a new language to reduce the risk of getting dementia. But learning a new language can seem like a big step to some people. It’s also recommended that we keep up with our social and leisure activities, which might seem a bit easier. When you learn Spanish with me, you get to do both!


When people - young, old, employed, retired - learn with me, they look forward to the classes because I make it fun for them. I make it easy. We dance, we eat, we chat, we listen to music. They come to see me because I help them forget about the stress of learning, or the stress of exams if they are taking them. I’ll say to them, “imagine you are in a café in Spain, how will you ask for a coffee?”
