Founders of The Spanish Line

Life is a journey

Our project was born from the concept that learning Spanish is a journey. Imagine yourself leaving home with some luggage in one hand and with a train ticket in the other. You feel enthusiastic and curious but nervous as you don’t know what awaits you on this journey. But this journey will never disappoint because with each step you increase your knowledge, create friendships, fantastic experiences, you gain more confidence and as a sudden you realise that you belong to the Spanish community. The Spanish Line is an online Spanish language school where we offer courses of different type and level following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

At The Spanish Line, every lesson is a step closer to the Spanish-speaking world, and every teacher is a friend guiding you along the way.

Join us and weave your own story into the rich tapestry of the Spanish language and culture. Your journey to fluency starts not with a lesson, but with a conversation. So, ¿hablamos?

Our teachers: your personal Spanish companions

We believe that the soul of language is found within its speakers. Our teachers are not mere educators; they are storytellers, cultural custodians, and your personal companions on this exciting linguistic adventure.

Expert Guides With a Personal Touch:

Each of our teachers brings a wealth of expertise and a warm, personal approach to ensure your learning experience is effective, motivating, and entertaining.

Culture Beyond the Classroom

Discover the vibrancy of Spanish life, family recipes, and regional secrets that textbooks simply can’t offer.

A Supportive Spanish Community

As you navigate the nuances of Spanish grammar and the intricacies of idiomatic expressions, you’ll find a supportive network cheering you on at every milestone.

Your Pathway to Spanish Fluency

Your journey with us is unique, and you are the protagonist of it. We are your guides, we don't just teach; we listen, we adapt, and we celebrate together with you on the road to fluency.

Ana Martín

Director of Education, Lead Spanish Teacher

Hola, ¿Qué tal? My name is Ana and I am from Los Molinos, a lovely little village to the North-West of Madrid. I love to go to the theater, to read, to dance and to do sports.

I have a university degree in Spanish Language and Literature and a master’s degree in Education, both from the University Complutense of Madrid, where I also used to be the president of the faculty’s Filologia club. 

I am also an official DELE examiner for B1, B2, C1 and C2 levels.
During my life, so far, I have lived in Madrid, Malta and for the last five years I have been living in Madrid, Malta, Munich and London.

Since I finished my studies, teaching the Spanish language and culture has been my passion. I have experience teaching one to one classes, group courses, classes for companies, preparing A-levels, GCSE and DELE language exams in person or through various different platforms online.

What I like the most about teaching is seeing my students improve their skills while they are having a great time. My classes are dynamic, and we find time to explore every segment of the language: vocabulary, conversations, grammar and games (yes, adults have the right to play too). There is nothing better than seeing the evolution of my students from a shy “Hola” to having fluent conversations.

I invite you all to join this fantastic journey, called learning Spanish – what are you waiting for?L

Karlos Wayne

Spanish Teacher

Hola, my name is Karlos and I am from Madrid, Spain, although my best years I lived in Rota, a little southern Spanish village shared with a whole USA military base.

I had worked at the very first Spanish-English bilingual public school in the UK for nearly six years here in Brighton where I live since 2001.

I also teach creative writing with the Spanish publishing company “Editorial Cuatro Hojas” and I am currently in the writing process of my next novel which I hope will be launched in a few months.
Due to the pandemic somehow we all needed to adapt to this new lifestyle.

For us teaching online gives the opportunity to reach a larger and more diverse audience than ever before. Are you thinking about learning Spanish? Congratulations, you have just landed on the right place to start doing so.

Melina Márquez

Spanish Teacher

I am Melina, from Toledo, a beautiful medieval city to the south of Madrid. I have a Degree in Modern Languages and a Master’s degree in Translation Studies both by the University Complutense of Madrid. Also, I have recently obtained my Phd Doctorate in Language and Literature by the University Autónoma of Madrid. I have translated several books into Spanish, my mother tongue, which I teach as a qualified teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language. I speak Italian and English fluently so I can understand better how the process of learning a language works because I’ve already learnt two myself!

María José Miguélez

Spanish Teacher

¡Hola! I am María José from Barcelona. I am a Spanish teacher focusing on online teaching for the past four years.

Besides language teaching I am also a passionate webdesigner, therefore I feel comfortable with the latest technology and enjoy using the various online tools during my classes.

I love teaching Spanish and guiding my students through the different phases of their learning curve observing their evolution.

During my classes I intend to minimise the usage of the intermediary language and encourage my student to use Spanish as frequently as possible. Being a professional user of digital technologies I constantly use videos, audios and different online tools to support my students development. I am looking forward to seeing you soon in one of my classes.

Marta Larrad

Spanish Teacher

Hi there, I’m Marta, from Madrid. Originally I studied Law and Business Administration at Universidad Carlos III.

In 2009/10 I was an Erasmus student in Genova, Italy, where I had the pleasure to meet other students from many different countries and fell in love with foreign languages.

During the scholarship I mastered my Italian, learnt a little bit of Turkish and practiced English. Upon my return to Spain I started to study German at the Complutense University.

When I teach I combine my own learning experience and adapt it to the needs of my students to ensure their learning is most efficient and entertaining.
I look forward to meeting you soon.

Cristina P. Soto

Spanish Teacher

I was born in Bologna, Italy, where I lived during the first two years of my life. There I found a love for Parmesan and perhaps the roots of my love of teaching in a city with a renowned history for it.

I grew up in Madrid, where most of my family are from and I started teaching when I was 17. I loved it so much that everything that has come after has focused my career on this path: a Foreign Language Teaching degree, a certificate in Spanish Teaching to Adults from Instituto Cervantes and Roehampton University and studies in Spanish and English linguistics and literature. Furthermore, I also hold a QTS and I am an official DELE examiner (awarded by Institute Cervantes, London) for all levels.
I believe learning a language should be fun and useful and that’s what I try to convey in my lessons. I also think that it’s really important for students to understand what they are doing and what it is for. This is why I like bringing tasks from the real world into the class. My teaching style places particular emphasis on the communicative approach – I’ll make you talk!


Balazs Nyitrai

Founder, Director of Business Development

Since I was a child my parents taught me and my brothers the importance of language learning. They always said, the more languages we spoke, the more culture we learnt the easier it would be for us to adapt to the changes life brings our way. I consider myself lucky for having the opportunity to live in various different countries and meeting many people with different cultural backgrounds and I praise my parents for emphasising on learning foreign languages as without it my life would have been much less entertaining.

Living in Spain I fell in love with the country, its people, the food and the Spanish lifestyle, therefore when creating The Spanish Line we decided to focus on teaching Spanish not only as a foreign language but also as one of the richest cultures of the world. Our teachers are all acknowledged professionals with a multicultural identity and a special talent to engage with their students guiding them through the beauty of the Spanish language and heritage. If you enjoy learning languages in a diverse entertaining environment where culture plays significant importance, The Spanish Line is waiting for you.
