Learn Spanish Today!

The Spanish Academy is the top-rated Spanish language school in South Africa, offering rapid results and practical knowledge of the language in the shortest time frame. At the Spanish Academy, we teach an unprecedented conversational skills course to people traveling to Spain, the USA, South, and Central America.

Our clients range from school children to adults. We cover all aspects of reading, writing, and grammatical skills, placing a huge emphasis on the importance of sound conversational techniques. To be in a foreign country, be it for vacation or relocation purposes, without the proper means of communication can be a daunting prospect.

We aim to give our clients confidence in all types of situations, thus allowing quick and easy integration into the Spanish culture. Comments are always made by former students as to how their experiences were so much greater and more rewarding as they were able to speak freely and get to know the wonderful people and spirit of the different countries.

Our Student’s Success Stories

Below is what our students have to say about us.

  • Excellent way to learn if you want to learn Spanish fast and in a very exciting way! I tried apps and various other ways but the way we have been taught really embeds the structure of Spanish in ones mind. I am now onto my second course. The founder (Slade) is a passion-filled master of his trade has gone out of his way to make the learning process simultaneously entertaining and educational! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE SPANISH ACADEMY SA! Muchas gracias! 🙂

  • Slade is the most phenomenal teacher I have ever had! His techniques are incredible and allow even the hardest concepts to appear easy and the course is so cleverly thought out and executed! As an added extra there are his unreal dad jokes which really just bring the whole thing together!! 10/10!!

  • Slade’s building block methodology makes Spanish easy to grasp conceptually. He makes the learning and understanding Spanish fun, entertaining and exciting. His ability to project himself into my future needs and create relevant conversations and examples in each lesson was remarkable. I thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and his encouragement, guidance and support. I highly recommend taking his classes.

  • I started learning Spanish with Slade in 2018. Since then I have been able to understand my Spanish friends' whatsapp group messages and have some conversations with Spanish friends in Spanish... I enjoy the classes with Slade and hope to travel and speak Spanish in a foreign country soon!

  • My daughter convinced me I could learn Spanish in just 12 weekly 3 hour lessons. I was skeptical, until I met Slade, the proprietor of the Spanish Academy. Eccentric, flamboyant and mysteriously delightful is how I would describe him; but I daresay, I still am not doing justice to his brilliance... Before we left the first lesson we could understand whole passages he read to us in Spanish; it was freaky. Well needless to say, the rest of the course lived up to its promise and after 12 weeks, if not completely conversant, we could fully understand virtually anything he wanted to discuss in Spanish.

  • I started Spanish lessons with Slade in June this year and within a very short time was actually able to speak Spanish. Slade is a very inspiring teacher who constantly motivates his students. I find the voice notes to be a very helpful tool in the learning process. The classes are fun with lots of laughs and insights into the Spanish speaking countries and the different ways of communicating. I would recommend these classes to anyone who wants to learn quickly in a fun and relaxed environment.
