I’m learning Spanish at a local college one evening a week. I have always loved the idea of being able to speak another language. I’d learnt a little German whilst at school and knew I didn’t want to replicate that experience. I toyed with the idea of getting a tutor for a while, but decided my spoken was good it was just everything else that came with it. One of my friends recommended Oxbridge and I had a look. Decided it wasn’t for me. I then went back and had another look and I put in a phone call. All my queries were resolved, all my inhibitions ruled out and I now knew this was the right route for me. Oxbridge has been a great experience. I have learned lots about Spanish dialect, construction of sentences, literature and the culture and I really believe this has helped and inspired my love of the language. I use my tablet for learning and can dip in and out as required and inspired!
Tutors are supportive and understanding.
Even before enrolling on this course I was able to speak with a Spanish speaker, this also helped me and Dan, my course advisor, as to which level I should go for. An added bonus – thank you!
