Your Spanish Box provides an integrated course schedule of learning through exploration, scrutiny, and self-reflection. Our classes combine hands-on experience with knowledge-based teaching - take a look at our offerings and contact Your Spanish Box to learn more.
Our Spanish courses are designed to develop the different skills that are required as part of learning the language (speaking, reading, writing and listening). We believe that its very important to learn vocabulary and grammar but also, being able to apply it to different contexts and situations for example scenarios of real life usage of the language.
We love to encourage our students to use the language at all the times throughout the classes and this is the reason why we use a communicative method to try and achieve this goal. As we are aware that this can be a bit challenging for the little ones, we always ensure to carry out our classes with games, songs, videos and different visual support that not only make our students feel more engaged but confident to learn and use the language.
All of our lessons are hosted in a very relaxed and fun atmosphere with teacher and classmates creating a unique bond and experience.
Our Philosophy and Approach:
The Spanish Box is dedicated to providing the best learning experience for our students. We focus on our students’ needs and provide up-to-date teaching methods. We create innovative language programs for our students who are committed to learning Spanish. We specialize in small classes with a maximum of 10 students per class to give our students the special attention they deserve. Our language classes are taught by highly qualified teachers with recognized credentials in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. All of our teachers are also Spanish native speakers.

¡Hola! Me llamo Lola and I am from Trebujena (Cádiz, Andalucía).
I achieved my bachelor degree in Journalism (University of Seville) in 2010. However, soon disappointed by the current affairs in the profession, I took a change in my career path. I have always been interested in languages so I decided to take a Spanish teaching course. After obtaining my Spanish Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults (CLIC International House) in November of 2011, I worked as a Spanish as a Foreign Language Teacher until July 2012, when I moved to Newcastle upon Tyne. I loved working at CLIC International House as it allowed me to teach people from all nationalities and ages.
Once I obtained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education in Secondary Spanish (University of Cumbria) in July 2015, I started working in schools around the North East as a supply teacher. After that, I worked in a school language for nearly two years. There I taught both adults and children. It was a great way of specialising on teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language to English students. I am now much more aware of the problems and mishaps that British students tend to have while studying Spanish, and how to help them overcoming these.
In January 2019, Tamara and I decided to start teaching Spanish on our own. We have plenty of experience teaching and designing courses of Spanish for both adults and children. We want our students to be able to learn Spanish and to enjoy while doing it.
My teaching experienced have confirmed my belief that teaching is one of the most challenging and demanding, but also varied careers there are. I enjoy working in a job where I can have the privilege of sharing my love of languages.
