Who we are...

A new way to learn Spanish in Edinburgh

El Patio is a project developed by Must Be Spanish. We are a group of friends that years ago made a big decision: create a community of learners. We knew it would not be easy but our motivation and enthusiasm helped us to work hard and believe in our shared dream. So, we began an exciting project whose main aim is providing a new way of learning Spanish in Edinburgh.
