Speech Bubble Languages

Fun French and Spanish classes for adults! 

Conversational Spanish classes started at Beatson Charity Cafe at Beatson Cancer Centre in Glasgow last night created such a buzz and Jordan so friendly and professional. He managed to enthuse everybody and get them all speaking away on the 1st night.

G.H.

A great way to learn Spanish! Both Louise and Jordan make you feel at ease and the classes have a friendly atmosphere. You learn Spanish in a fun way with lots of games and you are encouraged to speak as much as you can. You are given notes to help as well as access to digital learning. I would highly recommend Speech Bubble.

I have been attending weekly Speech Bubble Spanish classes since March.

The classes are excellent and held in a very relaxed, informal environment and I have learned so many words and conversational phrases in such a short period of time.

Louise is an excellent teacher and the use of games etc. during the classes help a lot and make for a fun way of learning.

I did not know any Spanish before I started, however I have now progressed to a stage where I felt comfortable enough to speak to locals on a recent trip to Spain – ordering food & drink, bus / train tickets, accommodation, etc.

If you are thinking about learning a new language, just go for it….you can do no better than Speech Bubble – highly recommended.

I would say to anyone considering learning a language to just….‘go for it’. It is a highly rewarding experience with extremely supportive staff who really take a great deal of pride in seeing each individual progress. If you are considering learning a new language I would highly recommend Speech Bubble as the materials, support and sense of achievement are all excellent.

The entire experience has been fantastic from the beginning and I feel as if I learn every week. I was hesitant about online learning but I really enjoy it and the range and quality of the supporting materials is excellent. The teachers bring great energy every week and create a safe, supportive and fun learning environment. Thank you!

I have found the whole experience very rewarding and didn’t think I would have the desire to sit exams or learn new skills at my age, however I have really enjoyed the experience and keen to push on and challenge myself at the next level.

I really just want to say a massive thank you to the whole Speech Bubble team.  I feel that for such a long time I’ve wanted to learn Spanish but didn’t quite know where to begin. Now I know that I’m achieving my goal week by week and I’m so very happy with my progress so far.

Level 1

“Quisiera un vino tinto por favor.” 

“Je voudrais un vin rouge s’il vous plaît.

This course is designed for those of you ready to take your first steps in language-learning, or for those who are a bit “rusty” with the language.  Each week we will explore the language you need in different transactional situations such as making travel arrangements, booking accommodation, ordering food and finding your way around town.  We will, of course, touch on some basic grammatical concepts too.  With our fun yet relaxed approach to learning you will develop the confidence you need to go that little bit further than a simple “gracias” or “merci”.

Level 1/2

“Éste es mi marido…¡es tonto!”  

“Voici mon mari… il est fou!

Is it time for you to take the next step in your language learning adventure?  Can you order than “vino tinto” or “vin rouge” with confidence… but still secretly hope the waiter won’t actually try to have a conversation with you?!  Well, Speech Bubble Level 1/2 is for you!  This course focusses on the language you need in social situations such as introducing your family/friends, talking about your hobbies and interests, being able to discuss your travel preferences and past trips you have been on.  During this course you will also start to examine verb tenses to further develop your skills.  Don’t think it’s all serious stuff though… we still guarantee some giggles along the way!

You can join a Speech Bubble Level 1/2 course at any point in the year –  we will take good care of you whether you are a newbie or a continuing Speech Bubble!

We offer personalised support to all new Speech Bubbles FREE of charge if you are joining us part-way through a year.

Level 3

Level 3 Speech Bubbles will have completed a full academic year with us at Level 2 before joining this group.

At Level 3 we build on prior knowledge of vocabulary and grammar structures and begin to extend your communicative competences. We will boost our receptive skills through the use of authentic and unaltered reading and listening materials and really start to pick apart more advanced Spanish/French language.

At this level you will have the opportunity to sit assessments in all 4 skill areas (Listening, Talking, Reading and Writing) … but only if you feel ready to give it a go!

Rest assured – the level of complexity might be heating up, but here at Speech Bubble we are committed to supporting you fully in the next step to achieve your own language-learning goals.
