"My Spanish lessons with Montse were very educational, fun and focused on the objectives I wanted to achieve. Taking private lessons worked for me because it encouraged me to speak, converse and write during and after classes. Since the classes were focused on me, it gave me the immediate feedback I needed. There will never be a dull moment with Montse given her creative teaching style. She is very knowledgeable, patient and very effective. I can confidently say that I improved taking her classes. While you are having fun learning you will also get to try her good selection of tea and some sweet treats."

"I would wholeheartedly recommend Montse to anyone who is wanting to begin learning Spanish or improve on the Spanish they already have. Her teaching style is informal and fun, but also rigorous and comprehensive; meaning that you improve quickly and effectively without any boring textbook work. There's no way I would have passed my C1 DELE exam without her! She's also a lovely person; it's three years since we moved back from Barcelona and we are still in contact as friends."

"My objective was to relocate to Spain in only few months and I never had contact with Spanish language. So private lessons were the best approach. I found Montse, the private Spanish teacher via her internet webpage and I wrote her a short email. She immediately wrote back in a friendly note. We met for a tea and discussed my objectives. Soon after we started a session of personal lessons, adapted on my rhythm and both availability. I like the teaching concept that Montse implements: over a tea or coffee everything goes smooth. Montse has a warm and professional approach on the classes, she adapts her style of teaching on your way, your personality, via dialog you learn and you learn in your rhythm. Definitely recommend her classes for those who want to have good results and approach Spanish from a non-formal perspective."

"My name is Katia, I’m Brazilian and have lived in Barcelona for 9 months. During this time I have made some months of lessons with Montse and for sure I can say that it was the best classes I could have! I have done the preparatory course for the DELE exam and felt well prepared to go to the exam that is so hard.
All classes were relaxed and Montse always leaves us free to speak as much Spanish as possible. Even with all the preparation that requires to study for the Instituto Cervantes exam, classes were always fun and interesting!
I thank so much Montse for all the hours we have spent together in Barcelona!"

"My name is Michael. I moved to Barcelona from London over a year ago and I currently work as an English teacher here in Barcelona. Montse has helped me prepare for the DELE “Nivel Superior” exam. I have found her classes extremely helpful and fun. After trying different Spanish teachers and feeling frustrated, I am very grateful to have found a teacher like Montse whose approach to teaching is highly professional, unlike so many other would-be teachers in Barcelona. I feel I have improved significantly thanks to her classes and it has felt easy. I can wholeheartedly recommend her as a teacher."

"My name is Tim, I am 31 years and work currently as a Commercial Director at a training centre for professional football teams. I arrived about 2 and a half years ago in Barcelona with a very limited knowledge of Spanish. During my 2 year stay in Barcelona I had the pleasure to meet Montse, who taught me Spanish on a weekly basis. I am quite bad when it comes to languages, but Montse managed to teach me Spanish in a professional way, with great results. Nowadays I am able to hold a Spanish conversation without any problem and have good Spanish writing skills.
Montse helped me also to prepare presentations and articles which I needed for my work and we updated my CV various times. Additionally we wrote some cover letters, which helped me to secure the excellent job, which I hold nowadays. All this has been very helpful for my professional career.
All in all I can highly recommend Montse, as she is not only a fantastic Spanish teacher, but she became also a good friend during my time in Barcelona.
We had normally classes in nice cafes in a very relaxed atmosphere and Montse has a good sense of humour, which helped a lot to enjoy the classes. It is also important for her to teach her students about Spanish culture and provides much information about the countries world of music, cinema and literature. If you are looking for a nice, good and humorous Spanish teacher, Montse is the right person for you."

"My name is Des. I am 35 and work as an accountant here in Barcelona. I moved here from Ireland in 2008. While searching for work I studied 6 hours per week with Montse in 3 blocks of 2. I found her methods were to a very high standard, well planned and personalised to my own needs. Apart from the methods mentioned in her Bio (don´t worry, you don´t have to sing), she also helped me with interview preparation and role-play. Similarly, she helped me to understand Barcelona at a more local level and became a friend as well as a teacher."
