Great teachers make all the difference

Robert Kothe – ‘I’ve been going to James’s weekly Spanish classes for almost two years now. He has put together a brilliant package. James is a great teacher, his lessons simplify the learning process, teaching the essential elements and you progress fast. Now with his new video lessons, we will be able to go back and revise at leisure. The online quizzes have really made learning much easier too.’

Lynus Murdoch – ‘James Bretherton is excellent. Well structured course. As well as teaching the language, he includes sections on the Spanish culture (Spanish weddings, food in Spain, the five daily meals, etc). You will laugh a lot!!’

Deborah Tregold  – ‘James is an excellent teacher. Before moving to Spain I went to evening classes at Leeds University for two years, tried Michel Thomas Spanish on CDs, tried Duo Lingo, then weekly coffee mornings but four years later was still only confident ordering a beer or a coffee… then James Spanish School was recommended by a friend. James has a unique way of teaching, I was terrible at school with all the grammar but James makes it all make sense in an easy format and it sticks!  He is an excellent teacher and very reliable and organised. ‘The first year was learning all written, no speaking, Second and third years are learning to put what you have learnt into practice easing into spoken ‘I have been going now for about 18 months and much more confident can deal with builders, shops keepers, bars, restaurants, banks, neighbours and the public.’

Sandra Issa – ‘James’s Spanish School makes learning easier. Thoroughly recommend this course, it is very structured and easy to understand. James is a very likeable person and makes the lessons fun but more importantly he explains everything in plain English which makes it much easier. I have done many different courses over the years and this is by far the best.’

Tara Harris – ‘I can not recommend James highly enough, his professional unique teaching approach achieves results whilst making the learning process fun. James is a qualified teacher therefore has structured lessons and formulas which gets results. 100% mejor professor’

Lorraine Campbell – ”I too, would like to add my personal recommendation for James. As a tutor he is outstanding, and he teaches the language but also explains the Spanish culture which has been invaluable to us as we travel round Spain.’

Carole Sommerville – ‘Highly recommend James for Spanish lessons. I’ve been going since Feb this year and loved the online video lessons during lockdown. Now we’re back in the classroom, I look forward to going every week. James’ sense of humour makes the lessons fun and memorable too!’

Val Eiksund – ‘Such a joy to attend James Spanish School, his teaching methods are inspiring. Without his culture lessons, life and living in Spain could be very different…Saludos profesor’

Jim Donald – ‘Lessons are well structured and enjoyable both on line and in class. You learn not just the language but the culture, the way of life and local issues. Highly recommend. ‘
