James Spanish School

What my students say

on my FaceBook page

Susanne Brown
I joined James school because he is an English Spaniard qualified Teacher with a clear goal for students to learn, speak and Be Understood in Spanish.
This is the Trinity of all courses.
I left his first class with HOPE and a simple formula to speak correct Spanish in full sentences.
LOVE the emphasis on learning the easy regular Spanish and the fun interesting insight into the Spanish and English mutual confusion and the tweaks to overcome this.
FAITH – finally Believe and already see improvement when speaking to Spaniards. James encourages (Orders) us to get out there and speak Spanish. He has tailored this course to suit the haters of the very word “Grammar”, even though he sneakily teaches all the essentials.
This comment comes from a top 5 hardworking student of many years who always had good teachers so I can recite grammar rules but can only “get by” with bad Spanish.
I have learned more and have spoken better Spanish since joining James School than all the classes put together and I am still in the early stages of the course.

I can vouch for how effective the online lessons really are, I was a little apprehensive about joining at first as I did not really want to start from the beginning again as I already have 18 months of UK Spanish lessons under my belt but James insists that everyone starts from his beginning and I absolutely agree!

James lessons are well structured and deliver what he promises, I am currently on lesson 28 and have learned an enormous amount, it has filled in the blanks for me and enabled me to construct sentences much better with a much wider vocabulary.

Highly recommended 👍🇪🇸

I really recommend this course for Brits wanting to learn Spanish . I have done various Spanish courses before, both online , and classroom, and i can say this one is the absolute best. I am on lesson 20 of the online course, and am thoroughly enjoying it. The experience far exceeds all the other courses.

Excellent product , I am finding going back and doing over a lesson several times really helps, each time something more seems to stick . For those who are not Brits or familiar with British peculiarities some of James humor might be hard to understand, but the lessons are great.

Tracey Elliott

I have tried several courses but enjoy and learn from this course the most. I also enjoy the little extra nuggets of useful information about the Spanish culture.

James Spanish School is great. Done a few lessons then work got in the way, have started again from lesson 1, great that you can keep the videos and notes from the lessons and go over them time and again x Amazing what I remember going back over the lessons x

Paul Webb

Excellent live school backed up with an excellent learning resource application! The spoken lessons online are invaluable

Ian Vowles

So far , the first time I feel I am learning something . Previously had in person (professional teacher) in Mexico but I retained almost nil . With James course l am recalling much more , plus laughing at his Brit stories which ring so many bells. The cultural tips are so helpful , understanding things makes huge difference in relaxing and integrating. Worth every penny !

Linda McMillan

Fantastic teacher he makes the whole process of learning Spanish a journey not only does he make it simple to understand he teaches you about the culture as well.

Greg Ross

James is a six star teacher, it’s a brilliant course, now even easier to learn Spanish in the simplest and best possible way!!

James is the very best Spanish teacher, a standup comedian, makes both Classroom and online lessons a lot of fun. James has distilled his courses over 17 years to make sure his students are taught the structure of the language. Buy his Core 50 lesson course, its brilliant!!

Really enjoying the online course and absolutely love James’s teaching method and humour. Wish I’d signed up years ago….VERY highly recommended 👌

Thanks James 😊

Carol Jane Macgregor

Nothing else to say but the best class I’ve done and I’ve lived in Spain for 17 years

Tara Harris

Consistency and practice is the only way to learn, what James has created here is the easiest system by which you can adhere to both. The app is amazing and has given me the freedom to carry on now we can not attend the physical classes. Each lesson I listen to seems to be a lightbulb moment, James’s magical teaching system is like no other.

Fantástico 🙌

I bought the online lessons during lockdown and registered for the classroom lessons as well. We started in the classroom in April and look forward to our weekly classes. James is funny, the lessons are well structured and he includes things about the Spanish culture and directness of the Spanish language. Would definitely recommend the classes

James is an amazing teacher and brings his own unique sense of humour to each and every lesson. Highly recommend his Spanish lessons 👌👌👌

Karen Joiner

If you want to learn the Spanish language correctly James is your man. He also makes it fun when you are learning and also you learn the culture with some interesting facts

Beth Noon

Highly recommended, we did the first year online now in the classroom. Enjoyed both and learned plenty.

Tim Raphael

James Spanish School , this level of adoration, in Spanish, that’s adoración, as if you didn’t know, .. could make you engreído …. Did I use a dictionary for that word … Seriously, you will not find a more complete language course anywhere, this is the best way to become part of Spain. Thanks James 👍

Frankie Harris

I love love love the way that James teaches and my husband who hates books and has just started laughs out loud and everything is starting to stick – especially comiendo/comando!!! I am so delighted that he is actually beginning to be confident about learning – thank you James!!!

Alison Carrick

I’m now repeating all the earlier lessons on my daily walk and in the car to refresh my memory whilst continuing with new lessons. Great app, really effective lessons. Thanks James.

Diane Cowley

James has a very unique way of helping you learn easily and drops in many interesting facts and customs of Spain. Definitely recommend you give it a go

Nick Mooney
