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.

You have probably heard that learning a second language is good for your brain, whether you grow up with it or take lessons as an adult. That is amazing information of course, but I also feel that learning a second language can make us better people all-round. Better learners. Better family members. Better friends...

Spanish exams can be scary. You have to write in another language, totally different from your own. You have to listen to recordings of people speaking very quickly and try to understand what they say. And you also have to speak out loud in Spanish! In front of somebody else! So forget about the exam. Close your eyes, and imagine yourself in a park in Madrid. The sun warms your face as you chat fluently with your Spanish friend about your new job as Spanish Social Media Manager for Amazon. Now open your eyes – did that make you feel happy? Proud? Excited? Learning Spanish to get the future you dream of is much more fun than just learning Spanish for exams...

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?”
