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.

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 such as real life ads, games, radio podcasts, videos, films and songs.

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

“We moved to Valencia one year ago and immediately started Spanish lessons with Ruth almost daily. We had never learnt a language before. Ruth is very kind and patient and her classes are always entertaining and fun.  Each class is different so never boring, sometimes just talking, other times doing exercises and other times playing games. Now we are able to speak, listen and read in Spanish with ease. We would highly recommend Ruth to anyone considering learning Spanish.”

“I moved to Spain a year and a half ago and knew it was vital in order to help me settle in to pick up the language as quick as I could. For this I owe a big thanks to Ruth. With her methods of teaching and my application we quickly got to work and was having people complimenting my level of Spanish after very little time. 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.
