Reasons to study Spanish at SALT

  • Individual attention in small classes

    We believe in a very personal and high quality education and small groups are essential for it. SALT's comfortable and relaxed environment allows you to feel more confident and your tutor can give you a more support and individual treatment.
  • Classes for all abilities

    From absolute beginners to highly proficient students, SALT's courses offer something for everyone whatever your Spanish ability. We also offer summer courses that focus on speaking and Spanish and Hispanic culture.
  • Private classes and tutoring

    Your process may be faster than in a group and you will gain confidence in a closer environment. Lessons are designed around each individual student’s interests and needs and can be taken at your home or office, or at our academy at Castle Terrace.
