¡Hola! Soy Inés Ramos.

I’m Inés, a Spanish language & culture coach with 15 years’ experience. I’m passionate about helping visitors and expats in Spain understand the nuances of Spanish culture and become autonomous in a country that is often misunderstood, at times puzzling, and always fascinating.

I have seen and experienced first-hand the importance of practicing speaking when learning a language. Sometimes we get stuck on grammar books, listening exercises and reading comprehension, but when it’s time to interact with real-life people… we become blank, frustrated, and we often give up.

I want to help you overcome the speaking barrier and stop missing out on all the fun. And I want you to enjoy the process of becoming self-sufficient in Spanish through topics and materials that will give you a better understanding of Spain and that will expand your curiosity for Spanish culture.

You can learn to speak Spanish naturally, and create meaningful connections with native speakers.

“Inés’ recommendations were all excellent, and we loved all of the places we visited in Barcelona, Madrid and Toledo. I felt that my time with her was well spent, as it gave me a sense of the language and some exposure to the culture, people and places to visit in Spain. 
I recommend Inés to people looking to learn Spanish or to refresh their skills in preparation for a trip to a Spanish-speaking country.”

“Inés clearly gives much thought and consideration to the way she conducts her lessons. I feel that each lesson is tailored to my learning style and level of competency. I have confidence that while having Inés as a tutor I will be able to attain the level of fluency that I desire.
I have seen the results that I wanted to see and Inés’ lessons have been an extremely worthwhile investment of my time and money. Highly recommend!”

Learning a language is so much more than mastering its grammar rules or knowing a large quantity of words.
It’s about being introduced to a new culture and exploring a new way of life.
On my blog, I show readers the real Spain, beyond clichés.
