James Spanish School is in Pilar de la Horadada at Calle Cabo Pedro Gracia 16 or just put “James Spanish School” into Google maps. (There is plenty of free parking nearby, and we have wheelchair access).
I have students coming from as far away as La Mata, north of Torrevieja and from Torre-Pacheco and Los Alcázares to the south.
We start a new class every three months-ish, but with Covid 19 lockdown, that has not happened, and we have a waiting list so we will shortly begin two classes, as soon as social distancing rules are stabilised. These are an hour long, run at the same time every week, whether it is a Bank holiday (Spanish red day) or not. The only break is Christmas-New Year.
We like to start the classes with about 20-25 people to end up with 15-20 when we get to Spanish conversation.
All classroom students receive the lesson they did with me on video as a way of studying. If you are on holidays or at the Doctor and miss a lesson, you catch up by watching the lesson on line.
Everybody has their own folder, and the lessons upload each week automatically so that you can watch them as a way of revision (it is not a video of the actual class with you sitting there) but the online course video with the lesson notes.
The lessons can be re-watched as many times as you like, there is no time limit for them.
There are also tests to be completed to assess your progress and homework on certain lessons that need you to practice to get the concept. Not all lessons have homework, but the further you get in to the course the more homework there is. The first block of ten lessons only has a test at the end, the last block of ten has homework every lesson!
We are currently working on second-year practice lesson videos. These are all over an hour in length and are so intense they are split into two parts, to give your brain a rest.
The classroom lessons cost six euro per week if you are away on holiday or at the dentist etc. you can watch the lesson on video with its notes. This amount is payable at the end of the lesson. There are no advance payments required.
An important change to our operations, is that online students who have completed blocks 1-10, 11-20 or 21-30 or more including quizzes can now join existing Pilar de la Horadada classes at an appropriate level, by arrangement.
To join the classroom waiting list for the next classroom start, register now on the menu on the top of the website page. (you can mark any days you are unavailable, week days you play golf etc. so we will not put you into a waiting list for a class to which you can not come.)
When the next class start date is fixed, we will email you with days and times so you can start your journey to Spanish fluency.
