Learn Spanish for holidays

One of the main reasons people learn Spanish is to communicate more effectively with the locals on holiday. Spanish people immediately warm to anyone attempting to speak in their own language, allowing you to make friends more easily. Without a doubt, holidays will become much more enjoyable and rewarding.

An experienced Spanish tutor will assess your current level and future aims so that lessons can be tailored to your specific needs. We can help you learn from scratch the phrases you will need to deal with any situation or help you brush up on existing conversation skills if you are at a more advanced level.

Even after just a few lessons you will be able to greet the locals, order meals, ask for directions, book hotel rooms, take a taxi, buy tickets and go shopping - all in modern Spanish. Lessons are fun and practical and aim to encourage mainly speaking and listening, but also reading and writing if required. As you progress, you will gain confidence for a variety of situations and speak more fluently.

With over 320 million people speaking Spanish worldwide it is not surprising that Spanish is the most popular foreign language to learn nowadays, both for travel and work.

Client testimonials:
"In preparation for our 3 month honeymoon in South America we took Spanish lessons with Fiona, Viva Languages. We were complete beginners but Fiona was very patient and taught us the essentials to help us get by. The lessons were very engaging and in a short space of time gave us a lot of confidence that we used on our travels which massively enhanced our experience." -

"I was planning a trip to Patagonia, Chile in about eight weeks’ time not knowing a single word of Spanish. Knowing that English is not widely spoken in rural Chile I thought that a crash course in Spanish was called for, a bit of a tall order!  However, Fiona put together a course taking in the essentials of getting around, ordering things, booking hotel rooms, etc. While I am far from fluent in Spanish, I was able to get around quite well, make myself understood and being able to understand most of what was being said to me. Many thanks Fiona." Tim Mitcham

"Fiona’s one on one tuition really helped me to hone the skills I’d been learning at home in preparation for a trip to Cuba. I felt much more confident when we were there and was thrilled with how much I could read and translate."Kayleigh Nicolaou
