España, ¡por favor!
Finding a professional Spanish tutor is easy with Talk Languages.
There are so many reasons to learn Spanish! It’s easily recognisable; it’s fairly easy to learn, it is spoken in Spain of course and also in a large percentage of Latin America. Spain is so accessible and rich in culture, with buzzy cities, spectacular architecture, cheap flights and plenty of sunshine.
We offer fun, affordable & personalised Spanish lessons that effortlessly fit into our students’ busy London schedules. Our students range from toddlers to teenagers studying for their GCSEs and A-Levels to mature students in their eighties. Our Spanish tutors are equally at home with online tuition or face-to-face tuition – whatever you need right now.
All those Spanish cities and pretty rural villages, miles of golden sands, exciting resorts, are all waiting to be discovered.
We all know that English is widely spoken by the Spanish, especially in the resorts, but your experiences will be enhanced a hundred-fold with even a few basic phrases in the native tongue. Bear in mind that if you plan to visit Catalonia, then you may want to consider learning Catalan. Addressing Catalonians in their native language, rather than Spanish, will be very well received.
Perhaps you want to learn a foreign language, but you don’t know which one to learn. Or maybe you think learning a foreign language is too hard, and you want something fairly easy. Our suggestion would be Spanish.
Spanish grammar is similar to English, so it’s not difficult to learn. Yes, adjectives follow nouns, and there are more verb conjugations, but putting together a sentence in Spanish works much the same way as in English.
The Latin roots of Spanish reflect the Latin roots in English. Many new words will be easy to learn just because their etymologies are easy to recognise, such as la mano which we recognise from “manual”, as in “manual labour”.
Understanding of Spanish will give you better insights into Latin and its effects on English. Often, it will illuminate many of those cryptic medical or biological terms. And studying the grammar of any other language gives you more insight into your own.
Unlike most other languages, in Spanish there are very few exceptions. There are few irregular verbs, most conjugate normally. There are few nouns where the article doesn’t match the ending (like la mano), most match up as expected.
Spanish is 100% phonetic. Words are pronounced exactly as they are written, and they are written exactly as they are pronounced. When learning a foreign language, this is invaluable.
In the US, many jobs are done primarily by Spanish-speaking people. Knowledge of the Spanish language may be the thing that makes it possible for you to become a manager or gain some other leadership role. And for many jobs, such in a hospital or police station, it may be a vital job skill.
There is no shortage of good movies, books, and music available in the Spanish language for learning or practice. Or, if you just want to enjoy a good film or television show without subtitles.
There are many beautiful travel destinations in the Spanish-speaking world which you could visit with confidence, without the need for a translator or tour guide. It may be possible to travel without speaking a foreign language but being able to communicate while you travel is priceless.
While Mandarin-speakers in the world outnumber Spanish-speakers, most of those who speak Mandarin are in China. Spanish-speakers, however, can be found all over the world. With the exception of Canada, Spanish is either the first or second language in every country in both North America and South America – that’s two whole continents, without even counting Spain! So your chances of meeting someone and using your Spanish are quite high.
Learning Spanish will convince you that you can learn a foreign language, and it might give you the confidence to advance further. Learning one-to-one with a Talk Languages Spanish tutor is a good way to increase your confidence. You can learn online or face to face, at home work or in a café. Your Spanish speaking confidence will increase by leaps and bounds and you may even make a friend for life.
