¡Hola!

My name is Ruth Bardisa, and I’m a Spanish teacher based in Valencia, Spain.

I have been teaching since 2013, and have worked with students from around the world, from complete beginners to advanced.

If you’re looking to start your Spanish language experience, or work towards improving your level of Spanish, contact me today.

Spanish lessons in Valencia

My lessons are all tailor-made and I prepare them according to my student’s needs.

Whether you are moving to Spain or learning for business, travel or academic purposes, I will design a plan that works for you.

I provide students with all lesson materials and use a range of interesting and inspiring resources.

Private lessons

Private lessons are focused on conversation, but I also teach and practice all language skills – listening, reading, speaking and writing.

Online lessons

I provide online classes for students so they can enjoy learning at home, at the office or wherever they prefer.

Corporate lessons

I work with companies to provide lessons for individuals or groups, all adapted to the organisation’s needs.

I have taught a range of students including working with organisations such as Valencia Club de Futbol, Masia Tennis Academy, Mag’Au Pair and Euroace School.

I have degrees in Media Communication and Spanish Language & Literature (University of Valencia, Spain) and also postgraduate studies in teaching Spanish as a foreign language (University of Valencia – Instituto Cervantes).

My native languages are Spanish and Catalan and I’m fluent in English and French. This really helps me as a teacher because I have experienced the challenges of learning a language so can better understand my student’s needs.

Student testimonials

Ruth’s classes are always entertaining and fun. Now we are able to speak, listen and read in Spanish with ease. Julie & Phil Neville. English former footballer.

I look forward to Ruth’s Spanish lessons every week. She is genuinely interested in her students and has made learning a language truly enjoyable! Dominique Maingard. Entrepreneur. South Africa.

Having a variety of learning techniques to keep it interesting and fun and most of all being a nice genuine loving person I owe Ruth a big thank you for helping me get my Spanish to the level it is today.  Mathew Ryan. Goalkeeper. Australia.

Ruth is excellent in so many ways not only as a great and patient teacher but also and more importantly as a human being! She is so open and giving in such a natural way that from day one you like her company and she makes you feel sure that you will soon learn to read and write Spanish fluently! Nanna & Eggert Magnusson. Former Executive Chairman West Ham United.

When I started, I was quite nervous because English was my only language. However, gaining confidence was easy with Ruth because she is an extremely supportive and friendly teacher. After a couple of classes, I knew Ruth was the teacher for me. She prepares everything for you, including homework tasks to help you consolidate new concepts. And she’s more than happy to offer you tips or recommendations to help you get to know Valencia even better. Daniella Davis. Teacher. UK.

Ruth is very flexible and we have the class in my hotel or whenever it is not possible to meet in person we meet online in a Skype session. It is fun to learn Spanish with Ruth. Her classes are very diversified and a great mix of conversations, grammar and games.  Stephanie Mund. Consultant. Germany.

After doing a 1 week course with a language school I realised it would be more beneficial to have private lessons. She is an amazing teacher who really knows her stuff. Her excellent command of English really helps and she is able to understand why us Brits make all the mistakes we do! Suewan Kemp. Housewife. UK

Ruth helped us prepare for and pass the Instituto Cervantes B1 exam and we recently sat the B2 exam. Her lessons are always interesting and well-planned and she goes above and beyond to help students settle into life in Valencia. Rob and Penny Kidd. Journalist & Marketing Executive. Australia.
