Learn Spanish with a professional teacher in a small, interactive (socially distanced) group at The Marlow Language Centre. Ideal if you often holiday in Spain or have property in Spain.
We run small groups of up to eight people of similar ability, guaranteeing good progress. Generally, we run group Spanish courses from beginner up to advanced levels. Our group language courses consist of a weekly 90-minute class that runs in conjunction with the school terms:
- September to December
- January to March
- April to July
Our general group courses follow a timetable. However, you also have the option to set up a private group with family and friends where you can set your own day and time.
See the latest groups with available levels and days and times, below. We publish a new group timetable in good time before the start of each term. Please feel free to register your interest at any time – it’s never too soon or too late.

Unsure of your level?
Read our guide to language proficiency levels to get an idea of your proficiency level.
This guide explains the progressive levels of proficiency. To better understand your own proficiency level, get in touch with us to arrange either a free consultation or a more in-depth initial assessment.
Book a free consultation. The consultation will take about 30 minutes. Our language consultant will recommend the appropriate course for you based on your learning history, discuss your objectives and goals, and answer any questions you may have.
Or you can opt for a more in-depth initial assessment. In a no-obligation initial 60-minute assessment – charged at £30 – you can meet your teacher, ask questions and get an impression of our teaching methods. The language teacher will assess your level of ability and help you define your learning goals so that we can recommend a language programme that will work for you. If you’re a complete beginner, the assessment will also set some realistic learning objectives and you can get a feel for what language learning is all about.
There’s no obligation to book a course once you’ve had your initial assessment. If you decide to go ahead the first lesson takes the form of a trial class. You don’t commit to a course at this stage. You get to meet your teacher and fellow students and ascertain whether the level is suitable. If you wish to continue for the rest of the term after the trial lesson, we will then ask you for full payment of £299 for the 12-week term.

Meet the teachers: Hannah
I got my Bachelor of Arts degree in Madrid, where I have lived for most of my life. My mother tongue is Spanish and it has always been one of my passions, especially when it comes to reading and writing.
In 2000, I had the opportunity of living in São Paulo, Brazil, and this really was an unforgettable experience. It was there that I enrolled in a language teaching course at the Spanish Instituto Cervantes. Since Portuguese citizens have an enormous affection for the Spanish language, I soon had the chance to work as a Spanish teacher at the Montessori School teaching adults.
In 2006, my life and family situation changed yet again, and since my daughters were soon to become teenagers we took the opportunity of moving to England. Since my father is English, the UK has always been a permanent feature in my life and I have been spending summer holidays here from a very early age. I love England, its countryside, its seasonality and its customs even when it rains! I won’t deny, that in the beginning it was hard, especially for my daughters, but now they are so fully integrated into British life that although I have British genes they are certainly a lot more English than I am. They think in English now.
After I first arrived in Marlow I was delighted to be able to work at Great Marlow School, helping kids with their GCSE and A level studies and shortly after that I enrolled as a student at the Marlow Language Centre to help further my English studies. Due to my knowledge of Spanish and my previous teaching background they encouraged me to start teaching Spanish at their school and little by little I started to teach groups of adults, individual adults and lots of wonderful children. I am really thrilled to see all of my students grow in confidence and make continual progress. Being able to help people with their language skills, and also teach them about Spanish culture is wonderfully rewarding and it really fascinates me.
