    broken image

    Mili Simarro

    Founder- Director-Teacher

    Mili is an Argentinian licensed Literary Translator Specialized in English and Spanish, from Buenos Aires. She loves living in Amsterdam and meeting new, "language-hungry" people.

     

    Back in Argentina, she started working as an independent translator and language teacher in 2004 (yes! almost 20 years ago!). She has enjoyed every minute of it!

     

    With an experience of 19 years in teaching at schools and also as a freelancer, she understands that in order to learn any language, the way of teaching has to adapt to each student and shift accordingly.

     

    With this idea in mind, Mili created "Spanish Lessons Amsterdam" in 2010, a place where everyone who enjoys learning languages and having a good time can come to learn español!

    Verónica Bustin

    Spanish Teacher

    Vero was born in La Pampa, but considers herself a true porteña, as she spent most of her life in Buenos Aires. She has a degree in English/Spanish translation from the University of Buenos Aires.

     

    She first started teaching English and Spanish in 2006... in China, where she lived for almost 3 years. Humor is an important part of her classes, as she believes a spoonful of sugar definitely makes the grammar go down.

     

    An avid traveller, she's visited parts of South and North America, Europe, and South East Asia, and is always planning her next trip. While she saves for said trip, Vero indulges in dancing, singing, reading, baking brownies and/or cakes, and wandering around Amsterdam.

    Cristina Jiménez García

    Spanish Teacher

    Cris was born in Seville, a sunny and colorful city in the south of Spain and she has arrived recently in Amsterdam after living in Napoli and Lisbon.

     

    She has a degree in Communication and is a certified Spanish teacher since 2015. She is also a photography and languages lover and she believes that learning new languages is a way of having a new perspective on life.

     

    Learning with Cris means learning Spanish but, also learning about the culture, traditions, music, cinema, etc. She is a dynamic teacher ready to hear your experiences and share hers with you in a way that makes you feel comfortable, but especially, she is ready to do her best to help you to improve at the pace you need.

    Pilar Lázaro

    Spanish Teacher

    Pilar is from a town near Madrid and has moved to Amsterdam looking for a change. So far she doesn't miss the sun at all and loves her pink-wheeled bike, fearing the moment it gets stolen.

    An avid reader from a young age thanks to her father and his library full of horror novels, she decided to graduate in English Studies where she found the joys of language acquisition. She specialized in applied linguistics and continued her career focusing on the methodology for teaching Spanish. She has been teaching English and Spanish to children and adults for four years now.

    A very important thing for her is that her students feel comfortable and relaxed in class, that's the way to learn, enjoy and experience a language and its culture while having some fun. She also likes board games a lot, so be ready to play!

    "I am biting my elbows that I haven't done it sooner!"

    I just started taking classes at Spanish Lessons Amsterdam and I am biting my elbows that I haven't done it sooner! I've only been taking classes a bit over a month and already see progress and have more confidence to actually speak Spanish. I am taking private classes with Mili and she is amazing. She is not only a super fun and nice person, but also a true professional who is dedicated to her craft. The classes are never boring, super interactive and motivating. Every week I am super excited and looking forward to our class. If you are thinking about starting Spanish or taking it to the next level, Spanish Lessons Amsterdam is a place for you! Vámonos!

    "The best I ever had!"

    Mili's classes are the best I have ever had! I used to struggle through my old Spanish classes and wait for them to end, and now I really look forward to them. She is an excellent teacher - fun, encouraging, patient and challenging. Will be coming back for as long as I can!

    Laura McKay, New Zealand

     

     

    "Absolutely the best course"

    "Spanish Lessons Amsterdam is absolutely the best course to take if you want to learn Spanish and have fun at the same time! After 3 months of classes with Mili I put my Spanish skills into practice in South America and could have conversations with the locals! I highly recommend Spanish Lessons Amsterdam and will come back for the advanced classes for sure!"

     

    Adinda Karperien, the Netherlands

    "For the first time ever I look forward to class"

    "I have tried to learn Spanish many times before but always gave up after a certain period. I love the classes with Mili. They are always fun, there is a great atmosphere and for the first time ever I look forward to class. Thanks Mili, you rock!"

     

    Edel Kavanagh, from Ireland

    "I am surprised about the progress I have made"

    "I have been studying Spanish with Mili for two months and I am surprised about the progress I have made. The classes are very entertaining since she makes students interact with each other and talk a lot in Spanish. Furthermore she is funny, very patient and creative in finding different ways to make us learn"

    Pietro di Filippo, from Italy

    "You can't go wrong!"

    "Mili makes every class fun! I actually look forward to each class, as I know we are going to have a good time - we play games, listen to music and find a lot of creative ways to learn the material, which is exactly what someone like me needs to stay focused and motivated. Mili is great at keeping the balance between the progress we need to make, and keeping the class light and entertaining. You can't go wrong with Mili! I would (and have) recommend her classes to anyone who wants to learn a language, but has a hard time fitting classes into their busy schedule - Mili will definitely keep you motivated"

    Tamar Matalon, from Israel

    Cannot recommend this school enough!
    Currently in my second course here, I feel my Spanish skills have improved drastically.
    The classes are so much fun, it is something I'm looking forward to do every single week. Milli is very fun and engaging and she's able to teach complex grammar rules with a lot of energy. I promise you, no-one gets bored during her classes!

    Sara Corciulo, Italy

     

    "My progress was extremely rapid"

    " took my first Spanish course recently with Sara, and it was superb. The classes were really enjoyable but also completely packed and challenging from day one. It was only at the end that I realised how tough the work schedule had been, because during the classes it was so much fun! My progress was extremely rapid thanks to the combination of Sara's energy and the well-structured material. I can't wait for the next level!"

    It is an interactive lesson where in the end of it you feel like wanting more. It really motivated me studying spanish , even after an exhausting day at work"

    Indrek Parna, from Estonia

    "Recommended!!"

    "I took private spanish lessons with Sara. She is very good, patient en funny. I enjoyed her lessons a lot and she was also flexible when to arrange the lessons according to my needs.
    Time goes by very quickly during the lesson because it is interesting and nice.

    I also liked her patience in correcting my mistakes and pronounciation every time, that helps a lot!

    Recommended!!"

     

    Carmen Cerruto, from Italy

    "They make learning Spanish fun"

    "Mili is a great teacher. She makes learning Spanish fun and is very open to suggestions on how best to tailor the lessons to suit your level and needs."

    Judy Rodriguez, from Canada

    "I found exactly what I was looking for"

    "I was looking for a not too school-like approach to learn Spanish during my time in Amsterdam. Since usually weekdays are exhausting this was essential for me. Turned out I found exactly what I was looking for. Classes were informal, with a lot of interaction and actually amusing! Teacher (Sara) was great as well. Patient, sense of humor and a good teacher 'tout court'. I'd definitely recommend Mili's/Sara's classes!"

    Phillipe Claeys, from Belgium

    "I improved significantly"

    "I took Spanish lessons with Sara for 2 months and had a really positive experience. Sara is an incredibly patient teacher and is always finding ways to make learning a more interesting, fun and personal experience. I improved my Spanish skills significantly during this time, not only in written and reading, but gained a lot more confidence in my conversational skills as well. I have taken Spanish classes in the past and haven't gained as strong of an understanding as I did with Sara. She is so nice and effective and would recommend her highly! Thanks for everything Sara!!"

    "Extremely useful"

    "The classes are informal and conversational, making the learning fun and extremely useful if you know a lot but struggle to speak in Spanish"

     

    Aysha, from Gibraltar

    "They get people to talk"

    They really get people to talk, which I find great. Even if there are people with different levels in the class I feel that they manage to make sure that everyone equally benefits from the class​.

     

    Nina Brauchart

     

     

    "You will be speaking good Spanish in no time"

    Sara is a lovely person and great teacher. She is caring and understanding with a firm approach. I began on beginners 2 and at first I felt like I was struggling a lot which knocked my confidence in the class but Sara kept patient and firm with me and managed to pull me through. I am now more confident and starting to speak better Spanish. I enjoy going to classes with the cosy small sized groups of nice people! These classes are fun and if you are willing to put in the extra effort outside of class you will be speaking good Spanish in no time. Highly recommended"

     

    Janine Conley

    "Extremely positive"

    Pilar is an extremely positive person. She has great attitude, makes people feel welcome to ask questions. She encourages to try even if you are not sure and doesn't make you feel silly if you do something wrong. She is very patient.

    "Spanish classes with Mili are amazing"

    Spanish classes with Mili are amazing; whether over skype or face-to-face we always manage to have a lot of fun (and learn a lot too!)

    Mili tailors the class to meet your specific needs, tailors her dialect to compliment the type of Spanish you are learning, and tailors her humour to keep you laughing.

    Plus, she has sweets and stickers. What more could you need?

     

    Tommy Crawford, UK

    "You learn quickly, and it's very interactive"

    "The classes are really perfect! I took a group class from Milagros.
    Classes are very fun, you learn quickly, and it's very interactive.
    What I personally like is that Mili is from Argentina, so learning some more South American vocab and pronounciation!"

    Jaap Van Der Velder, Amsterdam

    "Excellent"

    I am from Ireland and lived 15 years in Amsterdam before marrying a Spanish man and moving to Spain which is a country where you need to speak the language if you want to live there, si o si:-) Mili helped me a lot to make this transition and gave me private Spanish classes which were fun, interesting and very helpful. I highly recommend her as an excellent place to study Spanish."

     

    Mairead Ryan, Ireland

    "I am very happy!"

    "From the very beginning I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with Spanish Lessons Amsterdam! Spanish classes with Sara are great, she is a fantastic and effective teacher! Our weekly classes are fun, relaxed, yet structured, and provide a super comfortable learning environment. Learning continues at a great speed, week after week, building more and more. I studied Spanish years ago, being able to revisit it has been the best, I am very happy that I found Spanish Lessons Amsterdam!"
