Intro to Spanish - Seniors Fest Special

This class can include up to 14 students. Preference given to students who have not taken a Spanish class with us before.

My little sister tells me that 'Soy milk’ means ‘I am milk’ in Spanish. I don’t think that’s true, and I assume she learnt it from tik tok. But I know who I’d ask to verify it… 

Whatever your motivation to learn another language; be it for travel (because it will one day be possible again), or just to help you binge Spanish tv and films on Netflix, to sharpen your cognitive skills, to improve your memory, to increase your understanding of your own culture...or just to have fun, Mariló’s classes are a perfect place to begin! 

Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, the second most spoken native language after Mandarin. And it’s one of the easiest languages for an English speaker to learn (it helps that Mariló is an excellent teacher). It’s also a beautiful language. And if you learn it well, it’ll make your singing along to La Bamba, Conga and Maria actually make sense! 

Meet our Spanish tutor, Mariló and learn a few words in this 2 hour introductory lesson, where you will learn:

Greetings, introducing yourself, saying goodbye, and more! Mariló will also outline the importance of the Spanish language in the world and the advantages of learning it, and tell you more about the weekly courses she teaches.

We hope to see you there! 

Places are limited, so bookings are essential. Preference will be given to participants who have not taken a language class at NSCC before. 

Tutor: Mariló Corral

Mariló was born in Madrid (Spain) and started teaching Spanish in the UK back in the 90’s offering adult education courses at different levels. 

Through her Spanish teaching agency, she has been teaching in Australia for different colleges, organisations, and community centres for over ten years. Since 2011 she has been working as a Spanish tutor at North Sydney Community Centre running different classes from total Beginners to Intermediate level.

Her aim is to prepare students by offering her firsthand knowledge of the Spanish language, culture, and customs as well as by building their confidence so they can effectively communicate with the locals through lots of practice and love for this beautiful language. 

Classes are very interactive, and communication focused. 

Her motto is, 

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. 
Learn as if you were to live forever”   -Mahatma Gandhi
