Learn Spanish for the Camino

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.

BUT…

You’ll be missing an amazing opportunity.

  • 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.

TESTIMONIALS

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.
