Bienvenido a Spanish School Coruña…Welcome to Spanish School Coruña, our wonderful family run Spanish language school located in the breathtakingly beautiful city of La Coruña. For lovers of all things Spanish, you are in for a treat when you choose our school.
So, who are we?
We are Eoin and Ingrid Clancy, an Irish couple from Galway, Ireland, who moved to La Coruña in 2014 with our two daughters. Having worked for over 10 years in Galway as English foreign language teachers and as a host family for hundreds of visiting foreign students, we decided to fulfil our long-held dream of moving to Spain and opening our own language school. In 2016 we opened our academy, Clancy’s English, clancysenglish.es, in the lively, family neighbourhood of Los Rosales where we live and where our children go to school.
Why open a Spanish Language school for foreigners?
As a family run school with qualified, professional native English teachers, we very quickly became successful, which was what we had expected. What we did not expect, however, was the response from all our former students from around the world. Thanks to social media and the wonders of the internet, we were immediately inundated with requests to come to La Coruña to learn Spanish. So, once again we became a host family, but this time for Spanish language learners. As a result of this unexpected demand and the subsequent success of our unintentional Spanish language school, we have set up Spanish School Coruña to cater for students from all around the world who want to learn Spanish with us.
Are we qualified to teach Spanish?
No, definitely not, but we do not teach Spanish. Our Spanish school teachers are all passionate and enthuasiastic native Spanish speakers and fully qualified Spanish language teachers, who hold university degrees in addition to the qualifications required to teach Spanish as a foreign language, as set by the Department of Education in Spain.
So, what do we do?
We dedicate ourselves to the organisational side of the business of hosting students and to providing a high quality Spanish language and culture learning experience, through careful planning and meticulous organisation. We carefully select every host family and visit each home to make sure that our students receive a warm welcome, a comfortable stay and a truly enriching experience.
What we offer to all students who come to Spanish School Coruña is peace of mind, the reassurance of knowing that you are in the hands of a professional family business with many years of experience in facilitating the foreign student experience. Academic progression, cultural immersion, value for money and the security of knowing that we are here to ensure that your time in La Coruña will be one of your best experiences ever.
