We have over 13 years combined of qualifications and experience teaching Spanish at universities and language schools across Europe.
We are immensely dedicated to our craft, Spanish language, culture and education. We teach Spanish through a carefully planned out and well-tested method that has brought desired results to all our students.
We are multilingual and we understand what it takes to learn a language.
We are completely committed to helping our students reach their goals. We teach teach people from all around the world, from different backgrounds and of diverse learning abilities.
We are proud of our professionalism and ethics. Besides our high expertise, skills and well-developed knowledge, we offer honesty, hard work and continuous support even outside lesson time.
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.
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.
Over the years, we have observed language learning bring out a healthy and fun competitiveness between siblings, empower individuals, bring couples closer, allow friends to travel across the world, and we have seen complete strangers become friends through a shared love for Spanish. 
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?

Learning with understanding and developing sustainable skills

Depending on your needs and goals, lessons are structured and targeted accordingly. Your progress is tracked and measured from session to session ensuring that your work informs our approach, and that you are continuously challenged. 

We base our teachings on showing rather than telling – all steps in your learning journey will be taken by you with logic and understanding.

Every language has a specific way of representing and seeing the world. It is our job to immerse you in the native speakers’ frame of reference. With RLC, you will learn how to learn and gain a deep understanding of languages.

Our method of language teaching includes, among other things, carefully built and defined curriculum, a lot of questioning, scaffolding, interweaving, targeted balancing between comprehensible input and accurate output, prioritization of functional objectives, regular feedback, dual coding, highly visual and engaging materials, and cultural immersion. We focus on equal development of the 4 main skills – speaking, reading, writing and listening, and above all – accuracy in production

We believe that grammar is a crucial aspect of language learning, but that dry grammar rules are meaningless if not understood and applied within authentic context.

In our practice, we follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), an international standard for describing language ability and proficiency on a six-point scale, from A1 for beginners, up to C2 for those who have mastered a language. This does not apply to specific exam preparations (IELTS, GCSE, A levels, etc.) where other frameworks are followed.

Unless otherwise specified (target skill learning), in our sessions, we will work on  four kinds of language activities: reception (listening and reading), production (spoken and written), interaction (spoken and written), and mediation (translating and interpreting)


This depends on many things, including your native & target languages, your previous experience with language learning, your age, your motivation, hours of independent study, and your linguistic knowledge.

In today’s fast-paced world, there’s lots of emphasis on instant gratification. The world of language learning is no exception with the rise of tourist level learning, however, all the research out there, and our own decades long experience, suggests that it takes between 400 and 2200 hours of study plus a lot of practice to learn a foreign language at a proficiency (C1-C2) level.

Unfortunately, the promise of speed sells. 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.

CEFR recommends that it takes approximately 200 guided learning hours for a learner to progress from one level to the next. From our experience, supported by the Cambridge University, average learner will require around 100 guided learning hours to complete A1; 180+ hours to complete A2; 250-400 guided hours to complete B1, and anywhere from 500-600 guided hours to reach B2.

Our current courses include:

128 guided learning hours to complete CEFR level A1

192 guided learning hours to complete CEFR level A2

256 guided learning hours to complete CEFR level B1

384 guided learning hours to complete CEFR level B2


Romance Language Centre’s courses are structured using the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL), internationally recognized framework used to structure study content. This allows for structure and systematization in language learning based on the natural, gradual development of linguistic competencies, from basic to mastery.

According to the CEFR, language abilities are measured on a six-point scale, from beginner A1 to master C2
