We have a team of qualified and highly experienced teachers who aim to put students at ease through a creative and friendly approach to teaching. Our methodology is designed to enable students to learn to communicate in everyday situations. Our students are our priority and our teaching is tailored to their needs.

 


María Gracia. Director and teacher

I was born in Argentina but have lived in Spain for many years. I studied philology and bilingual teaching (English and Spanish). I’ve worked as a Spanish teacher for many years, since 1993 to be exact, and I’m the Director of Hola Spanish Courses. I’ve been surrounded by languages ever since I was very little and I love meeting people from other countries. That’s why I like working at Hola, where the world comes through our door.


David. Admintration and teaching

I was born in Asturias, a small region on the north coast of Spain. Since I was little I have always been interested in languages, I knew they were going to play a big part on my life. I studied to be a teacher, with a speciality on foreign language teaching and I moved to the UK to teach there. I moved to Sitges some time ago and re-trained as Spanish teacher for foreigners. I love seeing my students’ faces when they achieve.

YolandaNueva
Yolanda. Teacher

I was born in Barcelona but have lived near Sitges for many years. I started teaching Spanish straight after completing my degree in Spanish philology. Twenty years later, I have to say that I feel lucky to be working in something I love: teaching. In my opinion, teaching is not just about explaining a language; it also involves sharing lifestyles and values, and makes us appreciate the cultural richness of our planet.

MerceNueva
Merche. Teacher

I’m Spanish and have been living in Sitges for several years. I studied Spanish philology at university. I’ve been a Spanish teacher in different countries, including Brazil, where I taught for six years at the Instituto Cervantes. I love my job and the exchange of experiences with our students. Working at Hola and sharing different cultures with our students is a real pleasure.


Alicia. Teacher

I was born in Madrid, but have lived in Sitges for many years. I started teaching Spanish as a foreign language after I finished my University Degree in Spanish Language and Literature. I have taught both in Spain and abroad, in countries like India and in the UK. I enjoy teaching both groups and individual students. As a teacher I always make sure that my students learn in a fun and communicative way.


Laura. Teacher

I was born in Sant Pere de Ribes, a small village close to Sitges. After some years working in Business Administration, I decided to do what I´ve always liked since I was a little girl, teaching. I completed my ‘Teaching Spanish as a foreign language’ training and have worked for different schools gaining experience. Now working at ¡Hola! I love feeling how my lessons are a place of exchange and expression.


Marina. Teacher

I was born in Sitges, but have lived in Florence, Rome and Andorra. Since I was little, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. After I finished my Language Degree, I was sure I had chosen the right path! I love teaching. I enjoy seeing my students learn, improve and succeed. This work has everything I like: communicating, talking, listening, teaching, learning and meeting people from all around the world. For me, all of this makes the perfect combination to achieve happiness.
