Roderick Baverstock -‘This course is the BEST !! I have done Duolingo and a couple of others for nearly two years and I have learned more Spanish in James first set of 10 lessons .

‘In addition , having moved to Spain permanently 6 months ago , I have learned so much about understanding why the Spanish do things that seemed strange to me ( like queuing ?🤷) and I can still be a “por favor “ if I wish but now have the confidence to engage in the correct way without feeling self conscious . Quiero is now engrained into my brain and I am speaking Spanish , Spanish .

‘I cannot recommend this course high enough .

‘The learning tips and tricks are great and James makes the courses fun and enjoyable which I guess makes it a lot easier to learn and retain the knowledge and at 76 it’s not that easy any more 🙄

‘This course was a complete game changer for me living in Spain full time ‘

‘James,  you set the bench mark that other people / companies offering Spanish tuition should strive for. I cannot thank you enough for getting me to not only learn Spanish , but to be comfortable integrating into the Spanish culture and way of life .

‘Something NON of the other courses did – your course is totally unique’ 🤩🥂🍾👍👍👍

Kate DP – ‘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 ‘

Carole Sommerville – ‘James is an amazing teacher and brings his own unique sense of humour to each and every lesson. Highly recommend his Spanish lessons’

Aileen Burges – ‘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.’

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 Spanish Schools 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 – The App is amazing , very simple to use ,identical to the live classes I’m just finishing my first year and delighted with how simple James has made learning Spanish ! ‘

Ian Vowles -‘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 humour might be hard to understand, but the lessons are great.

‘So far , the first time I feel I am learning something . Previously I had an 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 !’

Greg Ross – ‘James gets six-star out of five for me as a teacher, it’s a brilliant course, now even easier to learn everyday Spanish in the simplest and best possible way!! James is the very best Spanish teacher, a stand-up comedian, who makes both online and classroom lessons a lot of fun. .

Sandra Issa – ‘Brilliant teacher, structured, fun and easily understood, also we learn about the culture of Spain as well which is very interesting. Highly recommend’

Andy Wright – ‘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 ‘

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.’

Carol Larrabide – ‘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’

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.’

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 cannot 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’

Lindy Twostep -‘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.’
