Celebrating at El Patio: Last Class Fiestas!

Our students deserve to have some fun after dedicating themselves to weeks of Spanish learning. At El Patio, we have a long-established tradition of the Last Class Fiesta, that brings all of our favourite things together: friends, food, and Spanish!

There's a Verb Workshop for You!

Untangle the knot of Spanish verbs with our 3-hour workshops. We reveal hidden patterns of even the most difficult-to-handle irregular verbs. We shine a light on the unruly forms and uses of the world-famous past tenses. We demystify and help you feel at home with the present subjunctive. Sign up for one - or more if you want that cosy comfy verb feeling!

El Patio's Hispanic Trivia Night!

Think you know about Hispanic culture? Come and put yourself to the test at our HISPANIC TRIVIA NIGHT, hosted by Linda on Zoom.

Get a team of your friends or classmates together, or sign up by yourself and we'll assign you to a group.

Our Hispanic Trivia night is open to ALL levels, Spanish and English speakers alike!

For the best online class experience, we've laid out a set of guidelines, from both the tech point of view - as well as best behaviours!
