Experienced, Native Teachers…

Many people try to learn Spanish just from apps or from non-professional teachers. This can be a frustrating and time-wasting experience. 

Just like you wouldn’t go to see an unqualified doctor or try to get Google to diagnose a disease (would you?), if you want to learn Spanish in the quickest, most efficient, and easiest way then you’re better off joining a recognised Spanish school. 

The Spanish Cat has been in business for nearly 20 years and we’ve taught over 10,000 satisfied students!

See what some of our students are saying about us:

"I have studied here from level 1A right up to level 7 and loved every minute of it. The teachers are patient, understanding and approach teaching with an evident passion for the language and their culture. My Spanish has improved drastically because they make you want to learn. It's never felt like a chore. Can't speak highly enough of this place! Thanks guys :)"

"I have been learning Spanish at the Spanish Cat for over 6 months now. I think that the classes are structured very well and teach the bases of the language throughly. I went in feeling nervous on my first day but all the classes are extremely enjoyable, yet challenging and I always leave for a feeling of accomplishment every week. I'd recommend anyone to choose to learn Spanish here as it is definitely worth the money!"
L Rodriquez
Student for 6 months
Absolutely love my lessons here. Had first level of classes with Marcela and she's probably the best Spanish teacher I'll ever have, definitely thinking to complete all levels with her at the Spanish Cat. Gracias

Spanish classes Melbourne.

The Spanish Cat has been running Spanish lessons in Melbourne for over 14 years. We started in Carlton and have since spread to various locations throughout the city. Currently we are running Spanish courses at the Ibis Hotel in Therrry St, Melbourne CBD, in St Kilda at the Betty Day Centre, and soon in Fitzroy. Check our timetables above under the “Book Now” menu to find a Spanish class that suits you! 

Spanish Classes Sydney.

We have been running Spanish courses in Sydney for over 12 years as well, our first home there being located in the old Spanish Club in Liverpool St. Since then we’ve moved to nicer quarters, and are currently located at Level 1, 303 Pitt st. Check the timetable above to find a Spanish lesson to suit you! 

Spanish Classes Perth and Brisbane

For the last 8 years we’ve been in both Perth and Brisbane, helping people there who are looking to learn Spanish. These locations are not just the smaller siblings of our main offices, though, as some of our best Spanish teachers are located in these locations.  We run Spanish courses in Perth from our Northbridge office and Spanish classes in Brisbane from our CBD location. Check the timetable above! 

Our Spanish Teaching Methodology:

We use the communicative approach, which means no more boring grammar lessons but speaking Spanish from the very first day of class.

We provide our very own text books for our Spanish classes in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. This specially designed Spanish school curriculum has been developed over many years to make learning Spanish fun as well as easy.

If you are looking for a great Spanish school Melbourne or Spanish school Sydney or Spanish school Brisbane then you have come to the right place.
