Teaching

Join our friendly, communicative Spanish group at the Centre of Pendeen.

Monday evenings 5.30 – 6.30pm.

£28 for four weeks.

I am a PGCE-qualified teacher with experience in secondary and adult education, having previously worked for Cornwall Adult Education Service, at Penair School and in Spain as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language.

This group is for improvers and intermediate students. There is a range of levels within the group and you are welcome to come and try a few classes before signing up.

“I wanted to learn Spanish as my partner is from Spain and communicating with his family is not easy. I am not young and learning a language is not easy! Having had several false starts at learning Spanish from people who were fluent in the language but not teachers it was a joy to join Alice’s class where lessons were fast paced, well planned and where she constantly monitored our progress and adapted things accordingly. We were devastated when she left to go on maternity leave; but I am delighted to be able to attend her lessons again which are always fun and usually involve a range of activities around an objective which has arisen from gaps in our knowledge. Muchas gracias Alice.”

“I’ve been learning Spanish with Alice now for about four years. I’ve gone from being a complete beginner to being fairly competent. I love the classes. They are fun, interesting and varied. Alice puts an enormous amount of effort into planning the lessons and is really positive and encouraging. Can’t recommend her highly enough.”

From time to time I run short 4-week courses for beginners. Please get in touch if you are interested in these.
