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.


Co-Founder & Spanish Teacher 

"I graduated in dramatic art at RESAD in Madrid and I was part of several theatre companies until I met my current partners and decided to start this beautiful adventure with El Patio. I got my Diploma in teaching Spanish as a foreign language and since then I have been loving teaching Spanish"


Spanish Teacher

"Although I was born in Palma de Mallorca, I´ve lived in different cities in Spain. I studied the master's degree to teach Spanish as a foreign language, and it changed my life. I love my work; thanks to it I´ve been able to meet people from different countries and cultures. Besides, I love travelling, theatre and meeting friends. "


Italian Teacher

"From Sicily. I love languages which made me study French, Spanish and English. After getting my Master degree in International Relations I decided to get my DILIT in teaching Italian as a foreign language and follow my true passion... teaching Italian"


Co-Founder & Spanish Teacher

"As an educational psychologist with experience teaching languages at secondary school and uni, I decided to jump into this project after realising how exciting and challenging it was to teach my own language to others. Got my Diploma in teaching Spanish as a second language and started this venture"

"From Buenos Aires, Argentina. I received my degree as a university professor in Modern Languages. I love everything that has to do with language learning and I spend my free time drawing and playing the piano"


English Teacher and Translator

"I'm endlessly fascinated by language and after getting a BA in Linguistics and TESL in Vancouver, I spent many wonderful years living and teaching English in small-town France and Spain. I discovered the joys of El Patio during my MSc in Translation Studies at the University of Edinburgh and I couldn't be happier now to be a part of this amazing community as a teacher." 


Co-Founder & Director

"I moved to Edinburgh from Madrid after finishing my Master degree in Business Management & CSR. I met my partners and fell in love with the project, since then I got my Diploma in teaching Spanish as a second language and I have been enjoying El Patio and its community"
