We'll start our experience in a central coffee shop, on one of Estepona's picturesque squares in the 'old town'. In this starter session I will introduce you to Spanish words and phrases you will find useful for your stay in Estepona; language you will need to get by in bars, restaurants, shops and taxis. From there, we will discover 3 typical bars where you will order 'tapas' and drinks yourself, losing your shyness and gaining confidence, with me by your side. We will be using the Spanish you were introduced to earlier, reinforcing your newly-acquired language skills. Throughout the experience, I will continue helping you with your Spanish, improving your confidence as we enjoy great food and drinks.
I fell in love with Spain and the Spanish language many years ago, graduating in Spanish at a UK university and moved to Spain shortly after. Since then I qualified as a teacher of Spanish, of English as a Foreign Language and as a Spanish-English translator. I have been living and teaching in the pretty Andalusian town of Estepona for many years now. During this time I have helped many students of all ages overcome their shyness, enabling them to speak Spanish with confidence. I would be excited to share with you my love of the Spanish language and the Spanish culture while you are in Estepona.
We will try one traditional Spanish 'tapa' in each bar visited.
Choice of one drink in each establishment
We will meet in the central square, la Plaza de las Flores, outside the Tourist Office and a few minutes walk will bring us to our first location. Here we'll begin our Spanish experience in a coffee shop, then take a walking tour of three of my favourite traditional tapas bars.
