Travelling next week (or the week after) and forgot to learn Spanish? Or left it too late to complete a course? This 4-hour single session will give you an introduction to the basics and get you comfortable using tools such as a travel phrasebook, apps for traveller Spanish, or self study materials. It would even be helpful as a refresher if you've done some beginner Spanish and would like to give it a new lease of life.

Small, fun and social, with a teacher who knows how to teach languages! You'll be in a group with other like-minded people who are all wanting to learn and improve—whilst having fun.
