My Spanish Lovers is back again and this week we talk to Friendly Spanish, a school operating out of London teaching Brits like me a thing or two about Spanish language and culture. Here’s what they have to say, including interesting information about why it’s always worth investing in learning Spanish.
Hi Friendly Spanish! Thanks so much for joining us here at My Spanish Lovers. For those who don’t know, could you tell us a little bit about yourselves and what you offer people looking to learn Spanish?

Hola a todos! It’s been a while since I’ve posted and had anything noteworthy to say about what’s been happening in my life and what I’ve been up to. A lot of you will recognise I left Spain for a while, others might not be privy to that fact. Either way, I’m back.
Madrid is where I’m working out of right now. And although I’ve got a few pokers in the fire, turning tricks (in a semi-ethical way), learning Spanish is still high up there on the ol’ agenda. You’ve come so far in a language you might as well get something to show for it eh? Well, that’s my reckoning anyway, as I’m hoping to finally sit down and do the DELE like I should have a long time ago, when we were both cats, and you hated me a little less for not selling out.
But still, you’re probably wondering how I’m going to make this work again, given the fact I don’t have a job in a school or have the charm required for fronting an English class (unlike my spirited friend Anton)? Well, that’s where ‘web working’ comes in. A vague description I give to people when I simply can’t be bothered to tell them I do bits of copywriting, design, domain flipping, web advertising, SEO and other stuff that means you barely get out or socialise.
So this is a post that kind of talks about that. Or at least the things you need if you want to make some cash doing things like that. If that’s what you want to do. That is of course without preaching THAT this is any more noble than THAT labour profession you currently do now. THAT’s all. Continue Reading →
Hola! I'm Will Peach and I left my 9-5 London lifestyle in the last half of 2011 to learn Spanish to fluency and figure out what to see in Spain while living on the cheap.
