A passionate team that believes language learning should be done differently.

¡Hola! I’m the Founder Director and a qualified Spanish Teacher.

+ I got into this gig because...

...languages are cool! I grew up partly in Spain, got back to the UK and decided to pursue my passion: first Uni, then international Communications gaining coverage in Latin America before diving into secondary teaching. I qualified as a Spanish teacher at the Institute of Education and taught young people before hatching a plan to teach adults and launch a radically unique Spanish school.

+ My biggest interest in language-learning is...

...getting people learning through games and social engagement and using this to cement good language learning habits.

+ Outside of Stripey Spanish you’ll find me...

...on my bike journeying to some far flung place or on my veggie plot.

+ Check out my tune from the Spanish - speaking world...

...'Rumbera' by Systema Solar.

I chose it because it’s fun, upbeat and represents a cool sound from the Carribean region of Colombia that makes you want to move.
