We're a start-up social Spanish school (we're based in a cool spot in Old Street) and we’re kick-starting a new way for Londoners to learn Spanish through social events and immersion.
We run awesome events in pubs, cookery schools and escape rooms on every one of our Social Spanish courses.
#lovesocialspanish is not just our hashtag it's our passion.

“I absolutely recommend Stripey Spanish for an interesting, relaxed, informal and sociable way of learning Spanish. “ - Kerry, Level 1 January 2018
“I have tried to teach myself Spanish using online apps, but I've always stalled after a while so decided to try Stripey Spanish. I loved the social sessions and the classes themselves are fun, so you feel like you're making progress without feeling like you're back at school!” - Ewen Level 1, January 2018
“I learned so much from this course! They really care about giving each student the attention and challenges that will help them develop their Spanish. Their enthusiasm is infectious! The social events were brilliant! Leaving the classroom allows you to see all of the practical skills that you’ve developed... plus they’re just so much fun!Highly, highly recommend !!” - Anne Mehta, Level 3 Course Spring 2018
