About Battersea Spanish

About Us


Hola amigos y amigas, and welcome to Battersea Spanish!

Battersea Spanish started in the living room of my Battersea home like a dream, a hunch that things in the field of Spanish teaching and learning could be different: lighter, warmer, funnier and more effective. The five initial students that learned their first Spanish words with us have four years later become a thriving community of over 500 students per year.

We have transitioned from a Spanish school for adults (and children as well) to a Spanish Cultural hub, offering also Dance Lessons in Salsa, Tango and Flamenco; Creative Writing Workshops for Spanish native speakers; and an ever-growing offering of events in the fields of film, literature, food, wine, travel and more!

We couldn’t have come this far without the amazing support of our students and every single collaborator we have worked with. We are also very grateful for having won the award for ‘Best Spanish School in London‘ by the Latin UK Awards. A recognition that made us proud of having followed that hunch, that dream.

We look forward to hearing from you, and having you join this vibrant and growing community.

With love

– Sara Caba, Founder & Director

Our Students

Originally, our students came from Battersea and Clapham, but as the numbers grow so does our coverage, and we are happy to welcome students from all of South West London: all of Wandsworth, Putney, Vauxhall, Brixton, Pimlico, Fulham, Chelsea, South Kensington and even as far as Islington, Angel and Shoreditch. We welcome anyone looking for a different and rewarding Latin/Spanish experience!

Native speakers have joined our centre through the cultural events we hold, and courses such as the Creative Writing Workshops in Spanish in Poetry and Narrative.
