At Spanish & Valencia, I know how important it is to practice language in real-life situations. You can combine your Spanish classes with any daily activity. This means you choose the context in which you want to practice your Spanish.
How do we achieve this?
By having a 1 hour Spanish lesson in the classroom and 1 hour of Spanish in real-life situations.
Alternatively, we can do a daily activity of 1 or 2 hours entirely outside the classroom.
What kind of activities can we do?
Any activity you choose, always in Spanish.
For example we can:
- Go shopping.
- Go to a real estate agent.
- Visit an exhibition or a monument
- Do a sporting activity
- Have coffee or a glass of wine…
Why will this be interesting for you?
Because I will be with you at all times correcting your mistakes. This will help you gain confidence and eventually you will be able to communicate confidently in every type of situation.

Our Happy Students
Raquel’s classes are pacey, structured and well-pitched. The time flies. She challenges you with the content but gives you the tools to succeed. She’ll also let you know about it if you’re making the same mistake more than once – an approach I definitely prefer! I’d happily recommend her to all Spanish learners.
We started private Spanish classes with Raquel after enduring some time in larger classes at another Spanish school. We really enjoyed the personal touch that Raquel added, the materials she provides to help you learn by doing and her fresh attitude. The classes are mainly in Spanish but if you don’t understand something, she can speak English to help out
Gracias Raquel por todo!
Raquel helped me prepare for the C1 DELE and with her help I was able to pass.
She was flexible and open to focusing on the parts of the exam I had most difficulty with and she had lots of good resources to help. Highly recommend classes with her
I came to Spain to study, knowing next to no Spanish, and with very few language skills having only studied French up to GCSE. Raquel has been invaluable in teaching me Spanish after I “self taught” myself for a few months. We started at the beginning and she filled in the (very large) blanks.
She is an excellent teacher, and has infinite patience with a beginner such as myself. We work through a text book course, but almost entirely through verbal communication and only when explaining new concepts will we break from speaking in Spanish.
I could not have asked for a better teacher, and recommend her services to anybody of any skill with the intention of progressing their Spanish.
I had private Spanish lessons with Raquel for quite a while and benefitted hugely. My confidence to speak increased and I absolutely love how my lessons were tailored to me because I was on my own. Raquel also allowed flexibility because of my work schedule! Loved it! Thank you!
I have had one-on-one conversation lessons with Raquel, either once or twice per week, for the past four months. I enjoy working with her and learning from her. Raquel is smart, thoughtful and well-educated, adding to the value that I receive from the lessons. She is flexible in her approach and encourages me to introduce topics of my own particular interest. Raquel is a very patient teacher and has a good manner in the way she corrects the ways in which I mangle her beautiful language. Under her tutelage, my grammar and vocabulary have improved and I have gained confidence in speaking Spanish. I recommend Raquel highly to anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort to learn. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

I had Spanish lessons with Raquel for a number of months and really enjoyed the classes. She really helped to bring on my Spanish and especially improved my grammar and sentence structure. Her lessons are fun and she is very charismatic and I would highly recommend her as a teacher.
J’ai pris 1 mois et demi de cours avec Raquel. Grâce à elle j’ai pu avoir une base solide en ce qui concerne la conjuguaison (ce qui était mon objectif).
Ces cours sont interactifs; nous apprenons à travers de différents jeux, vidéos, écoute. De plus Raquel est une personne trés chaleureuse et accueillante.
Je la recommande.
