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.

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. We would highly recommend Ruth to anyone considering learning Spanish. Julie & Phil Neville. Footballer (UK)

I look forward to Ruth’s Spanish lessons every week. She is genuinely interested in her students. Not only will you learn to speak Spanish well, you will learn it through a fun, open and an unbiased lens of Spanish Culture.  Ruth has made learning a language truly enjoyable! Dominique Maingard (South Africa).

When I moved to Spain I knew it was vital in order to help me settle in to pick up the language as quick as I could. We 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.  Mathew Ryan. Goalkeeper (Australia)

I am in Valencia for work and was looking for a Spanish class which I can attend in the morning before I go to the office. 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. She is very passionate and patient at the same time. Stephanie Mund (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 (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 (Australia).
