Romance Language Centre was established in the United Kingdom in 2021 with the goal of offering quality language education based on understanding, in contrast to the global trend of crash courses that promise unrealistic outcomes for the sake of profit.
Do you find yourself going through and wasting money on crash language courses that award you degrees and guarantee that you will climb the proficiency scale in a matter of 6-12 weeks if not less? Are you never quite able to speak, write, understand or read at awarded level independently nor do you feel confident as a foreign language user?
Were you taught a number of dry rules and told "because so" when you wanted to understand more? Can you say that you understand how the language you wish to use functions?
It is our expertise to assist you on your journey towards fluency and to help you learn how to learn languages successfully. Our courses are built on realistic standards for language learning, following the Common European Framework for Reference.
We want to ensure that your language learning happens through understanding of linguistic patterns and contexts so you would be capable of independent application of your skills and knowledge at any given time and regardless of the situation in which you find yourself.
Our method offers high standard education about linguistic concepts, grammar and culture, all while developing the 4 main skills that lead to proficiency: speaking, reading, listening & writing.
We do not support cramming nor do we give false promises and guarantees of proficiency. We are here to make your journey to mastering your target language easier by equipping you with in-depth linguistic and cultural knowledge necessary to develop and improve language skills at your desired level.
At Romance Language Centre, speed is not a top priority. We do not want to sell unrealistic promises, but to help you achieve understanding and retention that will eventually lead to independence in use and fluency. Our students understand that, just like so many of life’s most worthwhile things, learning a language takes time and effort.

OUR TUTORS

GEORGINA VUJIC MCDONALD

Spanish & Portuguese Tutor
I have always been fascinated by the notion of language as ‘a mirror of mind’, as described by one of my favourite linguists, Noam Chomsky. One could argue it reflects my love of psychology and everything human.  Education was my light at the end of a long tunnel, as education and illumination have been semantically connected since the dawn of human thoughts. I discovered my natural affinity for languages as early as 14. During my 10 year-long career, I have studied and taught many languages - Latin, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, Dutch, etc. My desire to inspire a lifelong love of languages and knowledge in people was born in the first years of my undergraduate studies where I excelled. As a Romance languages graduate, I specialized in Spanish and Portuguese, and my fascination with Spanish culture and language only grew from there. In a rather silly way, I found that Spanish and I were kindred spirits in expressiveness and passion. That passion for my work eventually led me to become one of the best students of my generation and offered me an opportunity to work as an assistant lecturer of three years.  In a decade of teaching languages to people of all ages, ambitions and abilities, I have come to believe that the best way to teach is through taught-provoking delivery, through individual approach that supports people’s natural inquisitiveness, and through positive reinforcement.  Moreover, I’ve always been defined by my strong work ethic and principles. I set high standards for myself, and for all my students because I believe in your ability to succeed.

ANITA GLAVAN

Spanish Tutor & DELE Instructor
My classes are always tailored to my students’ needs and interests; whether they're learning Spanish for studies, travel, business, or simply because they like the language, I do my best to strengthen their areas of interest through creative and bespoke thought-through activities. I put a lot of emphasis on grammar in my classes but as a Hispanic Literature major, I also ecourage learning through reading stories. Not only is it a great way to expand the vocabulary, but also allows a glimpse into the soul of a nation; I firmly believe that art reflects the state of mind, history, culture and the unique way of using the language to express worldview. As García Márquez had said:  ‘‘El deber de los escritores no es conservar el lenguaje sino abrirle camino en la historia.’’

MELANIE GABELA

French Tutor
Language gives meaning to everything we experience. Imagine how more colorful your world can be when you know more than one language! Raised bilingual in Australia, I always felt lucky having 2 worlds where I would compare expressions and words. That's when I realized how much culture is important in language acquisition. The language reflects the culture and this is why my classes are always based on a cultural references that I build upon and expand the student's knowledge in all linguistic and sociolinguistic areas. However, the real love story is the one between me and French. It's a cliché but c'est la vie! It was not until I was in high-school where I realized that French is more than just Paris and too many different cheeses. Getting into filmography and discovering modern music showed me more of the real French- people and language. Then later in college, during exuberant classes of literature, the relatedness was found in postmodernism. All this has made me determined in giving my students access to the authentic language they will learn, use and, most importantly, with which they will uncover a new world.
