The Training Room2019-02-27T12:19:11+00:00


After discovering the joy of learning to speak Spanish and communicating with my new friends, I decided I’d like to TEACH the language too. So I opened The Training Room.

I have three rules. Keep it small (no more than five students at a time), keep it simple and keep it fun. No boring textbooks in the Training Room. I’ve discovered how practical use of the language in conversational workshops, learning by your mistakes and fun-filled activities boosts confidence and inspires students to do more.

Janet, I want to express my gratitude to you for teaching me Spanish. I have always thought teaching was a gift which you either have or not. You possess that gift in spades.”

Tricia, Student

“After our lesson today, I had our fibre installed and actually CHATTED with the engineer! OK, not a very exciting chat, but a little conversation in Spanish nonetheless!”

Gina, Student

“Thank you so much for this afternoon Janet. Just what I needed, and probably more helpful than the past tense. I’m really looking forward to next week!”

Siobhan, Student
