A bit of history
In 2002, after a career in the City of London, Maria Torres Giron left her job to become a full-time mum caring for her baby son. Prior to coming to England, she had attended university in Spain where she gained a Degree in Education, specialising in Modern Foreign Languages. This academic knowledge about children’s development in education, together with her personal experience of learning foreign languages, helped her put into practice some very effective approaches to language learning. She was able to implement some of her original ideas about introducing two languages in the mind of her young son.
At that time, she decided to offer other children the same opportunity that she was giving her own child and created a small company dedicated to teaching Spanish using a non-academic approach based on her own ideas and methods. That was that start of Ole Spanish for Everyone, the company that has expanded successfully and now offers Spanish language to children, teenagers and adults.
Our results have always been outstanding where we could measure them, e.g. GCSE and A Levels where our outcomes have always been A and A* (8 and 9s). In addition to providing language lessons, we feel that it is important to offer Spanish experiences which we do through our cultural trips, Language Immersion Camps (both in Spain and the UK) as well as Hispanic cultural days, such as Flamenco and Salsa Events.
Over the course of 15 years, the system, support and infrastructure that produces great learning outcomes for our students has been developed and is a solid base for a sustainable and profitable business. We are now able to offer other like-minded Spanish speaking people the opportunity to achieve the personal fulfilment, independence and financial success that comes from running their own business.
