Spanish in Oxford
Oxford is a multicultural city that attracts people from all over the world. For example, the number of tourists visiting this stunning city frequently exceeds more than 16,000 visitors per day, thanks, in part, to its great transport connections with London. The 2011 census reveals that almost 155,000 people live in Oxford, and five percent of them are native Spanish speakers. It is hardly surprising that so many live in Oxford as Spanish is the official language of 20 countries, with over 437 million native speakers worldwide. Therefore, learning Spanish in Oxford is a means to communicate with a vast, global community and is an incredibly useful skill for both work and travel. Why not start your Spanish adventure with us?

Why Study Spanish in Oxford
For Work and Travel: Learning Spanish will open up new job opportunities in the city. If you work in trade and commerce, you will be glad to know that Spain and the UK have strong ties. Also, vehicles and machinery are the largest of Spain's UK-bound exports, meaning there are several work opportunities in these sectors, as well. Though, other vital exports are the groceries which reach the grocers and supermarkets: nineteen percent of Britain's fruit and vegetables came from Spain in 2018, according to HM Revenue and Customs. Anyone involved in trade within these markets would benefit hugely from learning Spanish, as they would be able to communicate with their clients fluently and without intermediaries. So, why not consider taking Spanish courses in Oxford to help you get ahead in your chosen career?
For Culture: There are also many instances for experiencing the fascinating Spanish and Latino culture in Oxford. For example, Camino Del Flamenco is a well-known dance group that holds flamenco classes and workshops and gives performances all around the city. Also, every May, Oxford hosts an international film festival, with “Rosa's Esperanza” being the showcased Spanish film in 2019. Frequently, the actors and film directors also attend the event. Why not try and meet them after the festival and show off what you learn in your lessons with Language Trainers? And if you want to learn more about Spain in general, Oxford University itself runs all kinds of courses. You can study everything from Spanish history to Spanish cinema there. This institution requires its students to have an intermediate level of the language, so make sure you get ready for the challenge and start a specialised Exam Preparation course with us!
For Social and Travel: Those more interested in making new friends with a passion for the Spanish language can join the Oxford Spanish Intercambio Meetup Group. They meet twice a week to practise their Spanish while making new friends. Some of the places they prefer to meet are tapas bars and Spanish restaurants, such as The Coconut Tree on St Clement’s Street and Al-Andalus on Little Clarendon Street. And if you are planning to enjoy some fantastic holidays, Spain remains a popular choice for British holidaymakers. Many of the UK’s biggest hubs, including Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports, are easily reached from Oxford via its great transport links. Flights between London and Spain's major cities are available almost every hour. With the stunning Barcelona only a little over two hours away, this is a great incentive to sign up for Spanish lessons in Oxford.
Where to Learn Spanish in and around Oxford
Taking a Spanish course with Language Trainers is very easy and convenient. We can arrange for a native Spanish teacher to go to your home or office, or you can meet at a public place if you prefer. The Oxford Public Library on Pontiac St is the ideal place to study, but there are also many cafés, like Art Café at 14 New Road or The Grand Café at 84 High Street, where you can meet your instructor.
And if you are not based in Oxford exactly but want to study Spanish, you can still get in touch with us. We have amazing teachers waiting to get started in Abingdon, Didcot, Faringdon, Aylesbury, Bicester and Carterton.
