Learn Spanish for the Camino

Are you preparing for your journey on the Camino de Santiago, but feeling uncertain about your Spanish language skills?

Some people will say you don’t need Spanish on the Camino de Santiago. And, yes. You may get away without any Spanish at all.


You’ll be missing out so much.

You’ll be missing…

  • An opportunity to show your respect towards your host country.
  • An opportunity to talk to local people and be invited into their lives.
  • An opportunity to learn more about Spain and its culture.


Also, what do you do if any of these happen?

🤔   You have a problem that can’t be explained with a smile.

📴   Your phone battery is dead and you can’t use your translator.

🤐   There are no English speakers around.


There were days I felt lonely, and sometimes isolated, as I was in a village and there was no one else there but locals and I couldn’t communicate.

I found Google Translate isn’t your friend. It’s like a twisted cousin who can cause you more harm than good.



You could get by without Spanish but… why would you want to just get by?

My name is María and I can give you exactly the Spanish you need to get the most out of your Camino de Santiago.

I make learning Spanish really simple and relaxed. Even if you’re a little nervous or aren’t sure where to start, I break it down so you’ll be able to learn the new words and phrases you’ll need very easily.

I actually have done the Camino, mostly the French route but also I did a good bit of the Northern route starting in Oviedo.

Having been at Maria’s class, I was almost fluent after her excellent tuition.



Every lesson was so perfect and just the right size to go back and study over without feeling intimidating.

I feel well equipped.

Maria was very responsive, helpful and encouraging.



It was a pleasure being a student in your class. You are a very helpful and kind person and a very competent teacherwho makes learning fun. Thanks for all your support during the last months.



The Zoom lessons you taught were phenomenal. I’ve wanted to learn Spanish for years. Your approachable lessons is just the kickstart I needed to build that confidence. Thank you!



Every little bit will enrich your experience and ease your struggles/worries.


The one thing that helped me the most during my Camino was the ability to communicate in Spanish.
